Happy Easter! If you still have snow on the ground and have not colored the eggs, hiding the Easter eggs without painting them might be an option. Enjoy the balance of your weekend!

Christ has risen.
He will come again.




He put us First when He made His Ultimate Sacrifice.



Happiest Easter to you and yours, and to all y’all as well.

Love you, Brother.


His Blessings be upon you and all of the others that are “captured behind enemy lines”. Much Love to you and yours too, My Brother.

Happy Easter and may all of you be blessed this Sunday.


Christ is Risen indeed!

Our Sunday School lesson today (John 20:1-18) examined how Peter and John saw (3 different Greek words used – looked, looked with contemplation, looked with understanding) the evidence and believed.
It also examined how Mary Magdalene, from whom seven demons had been driven out by Jesus, was overcome with grief and emotion to the point where she could not break through to joy even when two angels spoke with her; only when Jesus called her name in her grief and she realized she was truly safe from ever being demon possessed again.

The Resurrection offers evidence, assurance, and joy.


Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him all creatures here below.
Praise Him above ye heav’nly host.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.


Before he rose there was business in the basement needing tending to, (3 days in the grave, that number 3 again) “Reversing Hermon” by Hebrew scholar Michael S. Heiser deep dives into what took place and with lots of footnotes too. Dr. Heiser has passed on to the Unseen Realm this past Feb. but his scholarly works are well worth the view and rabbit trails of knowledge in the word.

Risen Indeed!


To think I was less than 10 miles away and missed it!

The local journo rag clapped like trained seals to ensure everyfreakingbody knows he finished the parade.

Musta learned that kind of tenacity in RVN, or was it temerity in DC as a sergeant-in-name-only, I forgot.

Dan Bernath spent more time in Vietnam that Richard Blumenthal did, ditto Jane Fonda.


Some good news out of Texas:
Gov. Abbot is trying to pardon Sgt. Daniel Perry before this travesty of a conviction can get much further.


How not to appeal to one’s market.


Welp, now Buttwiper Light truly is only useful for wiping ones ass after dropping a deuce.

A joyous and peaceful Easter Sunday to all my friends on This Ain’t Hell.


“The Easter Song” performed by Matthew Ward.

“The Easter Song” was written in 1974 by Annie Herring of the Jesus Music Group “The 2nd Chapter of Acts”  that tells of Jesus Christ’s Resurrection and the elation Christians feel about His Resurrection on Easter.

Matthew Ward is Annie Herring’s Brother and was a part of the Trio group The 2nd Chapter Of Acts”. He re-performed this song in 2013 in the Colorado mountains.

What a powerful new arrangement.

Please Enjoy. We Did. He Has Risen!

Hear the bells ringing
They’re singing that you can be born again
Hear the bells ringing
They’re singing Christ is risen from the dead

The angel up on the tombstone
Said He has risen, just as He said
Quickly now, go tell his disciples
That Jesus Christ is no longer dead

Joy to the word, He has risen, Hallelujah!
He’s risen, Hallelujah!
He’s risen, Hallelujah!


I remember the original (and 2nd Chapter of Acts) as well as this remake.

Still a joyous anthem! Makes my old Jesus Freak heart throb with joy.


Thank You so much for sharing, Graybeard and for being a blessing to our TAH Family!

“The Easter Song” IS a Joyous Anthem!!

We STILL raise our hands when we hear this song!

Thoughts and Prayers for your wonderful Family to include Mrs. Graybeard and your Brother!

STSC(SW/SS) nailed it on the comment “He will come again”.
