"Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? He isn't here! He is risen from the dead!" Luke 24 5-6.
What a wonderful day! He is ALIVE! and for that we are eternally grateful! This Easter we really focused on Brenly understanding why we celebrate at Easter. No, she doesn't fully grasp the entire concept (but who of us can completely grasp it?!?) but she knows that Jesus loves us so much that He was willing to die on the cross for our sins, so that we may live in heaven with him...FOREVER! Praise the Lord! We had a very busy day, but we had fun! After waking up at the crack of dawn (because we live in the sticks) we found that the Easter Bunny had been by and left some goodies for the girls, we found all the eggs that he left for them and then immediately had to start getting all decked out in our Easter attire. We went to church and heard an amazing sermon on the power of the Resurrection! After church we went to eat and then came home to yet ANOTHER egg hunt! A busy day...but a very important day! One that reminds us never to forget how much God loves us...that He sent his son to be lifted up so we could be drawn to Him. Killed so we could live. Beaten so we could win!
