I’m slowly breaking out of my comfort zone and experimenting with different art mediums…like painting. I’ve always wanted to get into it, but I knew the learning curve may bit frustrating. I’m taking baby steps…and using one hand to snap pics makes it all the more interesting. Haha

Anyway…Easter weekend is here!! Decorating eggs, receiving baskets full of goodies, and wearing floral dresses with white gloves are a few of the memories I have from over the years. What I treasure most is the gift of life. New live. Freedom in Christ. No more striving to be a good person. I’m quite aware of my short comings and trying to justify my behavior brings no peace. It’s what Easter is all about. The cross. Through Christ’s death AND resurrection I can be rescued from me. Really just coming to the end of myself and acknowledging my need for a Savior. Work, family, money…they make awful gods. They are sure to fail me.

I cannot fully describe the joy I have…or the peace for that matter. I do know the source…my relationship with God. The choice to give up control and surrender brings forgiveness and acceptance. That’s worth celebrating.

Yes, on Sunday I’ll still wear a colorful spring outfit, and eat good food (and maybe even a chocolate bunny), but I’ll also be rejoicing because He is risen!

Happy Easter!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16, 17
