Appalachia Through My Eyes – Easter

Pap and Granny's grandkids Easter 2002

Pap and Granny’s grandkids Easter 2002

Then Mary came at early dawn
To see where Jesus lay.
His clothes were there, but He was gone.
The stone was rolled away.
The angel spake to Mary there,
“Why seek Him among the dead?
Go tell the world He is not here.
He’s risen like he said!”

He rose, He rose from Earth’s domain
Upon Golgotha’s brow.
He lives on high beyond the sky,
His tomb is empty now.”

~His Tomb Is Empty Now


Wishing each of you a blessed Easter.

    Looks like new outfits, all around. That reminds me how that, as a youngster, any new Sunday clothes that we got were most likely to come at Easter.

    Love the picture! Beautiful and handsome little princes and princesses!…The daffodils seem to be singing, “He is risen”! Spring, daffodils, new dresses and Easter Sunday just belong together.
    Happy Easter to all
    Thanks Tipper,
    I had a terrible time accessing
    the Blind Pig early this morning. I am glad it is fixed…

    Hope your Easter was Happy and Blessed. Do I see more than a bit of Pap in the tallest fellow?

    A finer looking troupe of Easter revelers has never assembled. Have there been others engendered in the ensuing dozen years? The song was sung by The Cathedral’s and The Singing Echoes. If there were others I haven’t heard them. Do Paul and Pap sing it?

    Those are some nice lookin’ youngins.
    And the above verses are bold. In our
    world today, it’s hard to get folks
    to even speak the name of Jesus, let
    alone follow His teachings.
