I hope that you all had a very blessed Easter. We certainly did!
How can you not, when you celebrate Easter for was it is...Jesus's resurrection day. The day God's promise for a Savior was fulfilled. The day the stone was rolled away, and a dead man came to life, giving life to all of us who choose to believe. The basis of our lives as Christians. Thank God for that very first Easter day.
And this Easter, I thank the Lord for my family.
For my husband, who not only teaches others about the saving grace of Jesus Christ as a pastor, but also shows our children what it really means to follow Him in the most tangible and real ways.
And I thank the Lord for my children. For their childlike faith, and hearts overflowing with the
joy of the Lord. And for their eagerness to love each other...most of the time ;)
And for their willingness to humor mom with some photos...
Our kids may not get visits from the Easter bunny. Instead, their Easter egg hunts and baskets come from mom & dad, and grandpa & grandma. But they do 'get' the real reason for Easter. As Chloe said when she woke up Sunday morning and was reminded today was Easter, "I'm so happy about Jesus! He's alive!"
Amen to that!
