Easter on Schweitzer Mountain

This morning at 6:30am, we boarded the quad in the village at Schweitzer Mountain and rode to the top for a sunrise gathering of believers, to celebrate Easter. It was very cold, especially as I tried to play guitar chords. But it was so worth it. It was a wonderful morning that embodied the significance of Easter for me - the victory Christ holds over death. And I can't think of a better way to celebrate his life than by standing among his awesome creation and surveying his handiwork for miles in all directions. I got to participate by leading the group in three songs. As my fingers stiffened and hurt, my mind was so thankful for Christ's love for us.
