i love what we celebrate - jesus' resurrection. the foundation of our faith.
the older i get, the more amazed and thankful i am for the sacrifice that god made for us - sending his only son to die for us so that one day we can spend forever in eternity with him. i can't wait for the day when pierce and stella understand the real meaning of easter.
sunday at church we sang a song called "arise, my love." and i can't help but imagine god telling jesus to arise because the grave could not contain him any longer. amazing.
"Arise, My love. Arise, My love. The grave no longer has a hold on you No more death sting No more suffering Arise...Arise...my love."
easter weekend we made a trip out west to sweetwater to visit gram and pawpaw. we all enjoyed a 'slower pace' weekend full of lots of fun activities - visiting gram at work, playing outside, swinging, baking a bunny cake, hunting easter eggs, playing in pawpaw's truck, and playing with justin's old toys.
last weekend me and my little loves headed up to prestonwood for the egg hunt. justin was out of town so i was flying solo. but jeff was also out of town, so becky was on her own too. so we tag teamed it. it was definitely easier with both our sets of eyes watching the boys and it allowed one of us to hunt eggs with the boys while the other watched the girls.
