Just some snapshots from our day full of kites, egg hunts with neighbors (with minimal eggs. bummer), ben and sassy learning how to shoot soda cans, church and eating candy until we were sick. Overall, it was just a wonderful day.
We are so thankful for this Easter and for Christ and all He did for us. Knowing that He gave up everything to die for me is something that I know I will truly never grasp entirely, but I hope that it changes, challenges and fulfills me more every day. I hope that His grace is evident in how I love people; in who I am; shining out of every part of me when I dont have the right words to say. That gratitude, mercy and love are there even when I dont see them. Not in a preachy, stuffy, judgmental way, but in the way that seeks to know, hear and love everyone around me. More like Jesus and less like me.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him." Mark 16:6
