Easter 2017

This year, we enjoyed several Easter celebrations. The first was with our new neighbors, we had a potluck dinner complete with an Easter egg hunt and egg relay races. We truly have some of the nicest neighbors and our kids enjoy playing together which is a real blessing.

Here's most of the kids on our street, this was the best group picture we could get.

Then Sunday we enjoyed worshipping our risen LORD with our church body.  Singing the songs, hearing the message and experiencing the presence of God is always awe inspiring and I again left grateful and thankful for Jesus' sacrifice for me.  He had the power to get down off that cross but instead He chose to endure the pain and all the shame so that I might have the chance at eternal security and life forever with Him.  I'm so thankful for the cross, and what it means for you and for me today and every day.  Mom, graciously hosted lunch at her home and the kids once again enjoyed gathering up all kinds of pastel colored-plastic goodness...some of the eggs even had money in them which made for a fun egg hunt for sure!

Because He lives I can face tomorrow.  Because He lives all fear is gone.  Because I know who holds the future, and life is worth the living just because He lives.  He is risen, He is risen in deed!  I hope you too had a blessed Easter.
