Happy Easter (from Berlin!)

The gates of Heaven have been opened, because Our dear Lord died for our sins!  And rejoice, for now He has risen--hallelujah!

My husband, youngest son, and I are in Berlin this weekend, and last night, we saw what remains of the wall that used to divide East and West Berlin, the wall that separated free people from those who were oppressed by a brutal Communist regime.  And when I looked at that trail of bricks in the road, a lasting reminder of that awful barrier, I couldn't help but think that when Jesus died for us, he knocked down the wall that separates us from eternal life with His Father.

I've got pictures to show you from this amazing trip to a city I never in a million years thought I'd have the opportunity to visit.  But for now, a German "Happy Easter" to you, dear readers!
