Happy Easter!

It’s Easter Sunday!

While a lot of people will pass by this day with little more than some chocolate and colorful Easter eggs, I hope that you will spend today celebrating how Christ has risen!

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, and going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

Matthew 28:1-10

Thankful for Love

Do you ever just stop and think of all the people who love you? Not like “I know them so it counts” love. I’m talking about the “I will drop anything and everything to come help you” type of love. Maybe your list would start like:

  • Mom
  • Dad
  • Sister
  • Brother

And… That’s it. And then you start to think and you come up with a few more.

  • Grandmom
  • Opa
  • Oma
  • Nanny
  • Dog

And then you’re like “Oh yeah!” And you add 20 more people.

  • BFF
  • Aunt
  • Uncle
  • Friends
  • Family friends
  • Sunday School leader
  • Nephews
  • Nieces
  • Cousins
  • Teachers
  • Pastors

And then you’re like “Wow! That’s a lot!” But there are tons of more people who love you, people you don’t even know or have never met but they are praying for you and they love you! That’s a lot of love! It can’t get better than this, can it? Yes, it can! God loves you. How much? Like, a lot. More than everyone you know could ever love you all put together!

Psalm 36:5 says that God’s love is steadfast and extends to the heavens. That’s REALLY far which means that God loves you a lot! I am so happy that we can go to God for everything and anything, knowing that He loves us and will always be there for us! It’s just one of the many things that I’m thankful for. :)

Let me know what you are most thankful for and don’t forget to follow! :)
