The Real Meaning Of Easter...........

How deep the Father's love for us, how vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son, to make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss, the Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One, bring many sons to glory
Behold the man upon a cross my sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice, call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there, until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life, I know that it is finished
I will nost boast in anything, no gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward ,I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart, His wounds have paid my ransom
Today, in memory of what Christ did for us, Trevor and his co-worker Bodie and I hiked up to the cross on the top of Mount Tzouhalem. The day was just perfect for a hike and it was Trev's first time seeing the Cowichan Valley in all it's glory.
Looking south towards Victoria.....

On our way back down the mountain we came by this little area off to the side of the path with these neat rock formations that took someone a long time to put together. What's even cooler is that thousands of people make use of the mountain for hiking, running, mountain and dirt biking and quading, and these formations remained untouched, simply out of respect.
Another rock tower.........

We had an awesome day.........and look forward to Sunday, when we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord!
