We spent Grey's first Easter at home, since she is still too fragile to expose to germs at church. Daddy played the drums for church, but he came home and spent the afternoon with us. It has been a wonderful family day.
We attempted a family photo with our camera's timer, and what.a.joke. This photo is right on the edge of horrible, but it's the only one with all our heads in it. ;)
Since we did not hunt eggs this year, we thought Grey's Easter basket could hold her in it since she is small enough. Once again, this was pretty much another photo failure, but it was a fun experience any ways. lol
Daddy and Mommy! Enough already please!
Being so cute is exhausting you know.
Daddy read us the Easter Story out of the Jesus Storybook Bible (highly recommend for children). Grey cooed throughout Chet reading. I think she was reading along. :)
We have hope and the promise of eternal life because of Christ's sinless death on the cross, and resurrection three days later. It is completely undeserved, yet Christ loves us so much that He willingly chose death to bear our miserable sinful lives on the cross with Him that Day. These past few years I have been in complete awe of that kind of love. I would not even put a scratch on either one of my children, for someone I loved, yet...God gave His Son to die for us. It's unfathomable kind of LOVE.
Because He died to give us the free gift of Salvation, we will get to be reunited as a whole family again one day. This Easter is so much sweeter than last Easter, getting to hold our precious daughter; yet I still think about our 19 month old, and how much he is missed. I can only imagine how amazing it is to spend today with Jesus!
Thank You Jesus. Thank You.
And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death is your sting?" But thanks be to to God! He gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:14, 20, 55-56
