Preparing for Easter

Taking a brief break from thesis writing to return to the blog. It has been too long. I've been thinking and preparing my heart for the Easter season, the celebration of the fact that I no longer have to fear death. I find that music often prepares me for Easter more than anything else. This year it is the following video. I'd recommend watching it a couple of times, just to get the lyrical nuances down. John Mark McMillan is brilliant and I think this captures eloquently the heart of Easter for me.

What about you? What songs, rituals, or images begin to put your heart in the Easter season?
