Absolutely amazing!

Our church service was amazing today. I was told we were having a play. I wasn't expecting this sort of play. Words can't describe how awesome it was. The lights, sounds, and the amazing experience, I truly enjoyed myself. It makes me feel good to sit in church and get something out of it. I had goosebumps the whole time. I was in tears. I wish everyone knew what a sacrifice He made just for you and me. It makes me sad to know there are people who don't know. That's why we are here right?! My mom and dad joined us today. I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did. We are truly blessed to have found this church and be a part of it. I am thrilled to be some comfortable there. I have to say that Easter is my favorite holiday. What a glorious day.
He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives
He walks with me and He talks with me
Along life's narrow way.
He lives, He live, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives:
He lives within my heart.

What amazing words!

My family got together today to celebrate Easter. My sister Sue and her family is out of town, so it was sad that they weren't with us. There were in my thoughts though.

Randall and my brother Joe had to work tonight, so the celebration was cut short. We had beans and cornbread and let the kiddos hunt eggs. It was a lot of fun for everyone! The kids had a ball hunting for the eggs. The party was at our house b/c my mom wasn't ready for us to have it at her house.

I have included a few photos from today!

This one was taken before church.
The Easter Bunny came while we were at church. This pinwheel has ladybugs on it, and she LOVES ladybugs!
Aw, the beloved Lightning. She is in love with him right now!
I wanted a good photo with her basket, so I gave her a ring pop that she got from Nana!
Trying to find the most eggs!

Posing with her sweet cousins!
Opening all her candy and saying "CHEESE!"

Hi Sadie,
It's nice to "meet" you! Thanks for the comment on my blog.
Ruthie is so cute- that little smile just lights up the room!
I love Easter too- I can't truly wrap my little mind around the pain, suffering and sacrifice He made for undeserving me!
I'm bookmarking your blog- I'll be back!

I also had a great day at church. Tears totally forming in my eyes. Sometimes it all just takes my breath away.

Looks like Ruthie had a great holiday. Love her Easter dress!!

I am so glad you love your church. What a blessing it is that God gave us a precious family to walk beside on this journey. Glad your day was so sweet....
