I'm so sorry mom dressed you as a rabbit for your first Easter! I was just so excited to find tiny NICU clothes, and I could not resist. I PROMISE the next time I dress you up, you will be something much cooler and much more tough- just like you!!
On a more serious note... Easter really had me convicted on sacrifices. I realize whatever sacrifices I think I'm making..things I think I'm not getting, it is all nothing in comparison to what was sacrificed for me, and my life. God giving up his Son was the greatest sacrifice, and Jesus submitting to His will...just so I could have eternal life. So I could walk this life with hope, and peace, and have a Guide who never "messes" up the plan. So I could be forgiven again and again and be given grace upon grace each day. It doesn't seem I'm deserving. And I'm not! That's the beauty of it. Thinking upon that, really puts everything in perspective and produces nothing but a grateful heart. What a battle that is..a grateful heart- every day! Lord, help me!
Here's Bryan's post from Easter weekend as well....
Robyn and I just watched Passion of the Christ and I'm humbled again about the pain and suffering Jesus went through to reconcile us to God. ALL of our sins were future sins and He took them all on Himself and forgave us of our trespasses. He paid it ALL and our sins are forgiven. I pray that I can walk in this freedom! I also pray that Asher knows our Risen Lord personally and that he commits his entire life to serving our great King!
We hope you had a very blessed Easter weekend!!
