Easter Sunday Sunrise – He is Risen!

I got away this past Friday to visit one of my very favorite places on the face of the earth – Ocracoke Island. I’m staying at a little B&B that caters to artists and writers called Oscar’s House. I’ll post more excerpts from my journal later, but for now I just wanted to share a few photographs I took at 6:00 am this morning during and after the sunrise service I attended at the beach. It was a magical morning and the light was magnificent. I felt God’s presence as the sun came up off the horizon and broke through the clouds. The sunrise this morning was very symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    We attended the sunrise beach service years ago and still talk about today. It was one of the most moving services we had ever taken part in. We were invited to an Easter brunch after the service at one of the local churches and were made to feel so welcome. It was an unforgettable weekend.
