He is Risen!!!!
Happy Easter everyone! Today we are celebrating the fact that death did not win!!! That after dying and taking on all of my sin, Jesus walked out of the grave ALIVE!!! Can there be anything more beautiful or more amazing? I don't think so. I hope you are celebrating too!!
We are also celebrating today my husband's birthday!! What a wonderful man I married!! Happy Birthday Honey!!! I love you!
And if that is not enough, I also get to celebrate the fact that I get to visit each of you today and this week!!!! I have missed everyone so much and am excited to see what all I've missed and get caught up.
Here's my week:
This is how the stage was set up when we walked into church this morning. Very dramatic.
I got to babysit this sweet boy this morning. But sadly, he ended up sleeping most of the time that I had him. :(
We kicked off our new Women's ministry program tonight. We had 45 ladies show up...wow!!! The theme was Jesus, the Bread of Life. I started the evening teaching them how to make artisan bread. Everyone took home their own dough.
We then moved to the atrium where we learned how aspects of the seder point to Jesus and ended the evening taking communion together where we crushed our own grapes....very powerful!!
Today is my sweet Alyssa's birthday!!!
She chose to have a family game night at home. Even though we had to eat a meal that went along with Steve's fast, I still made her her favorite cake!!
I think she was pretty pleased with it all!!! :)
Can you guess what is going on here?
A rock hit my windshield coming home from New Orleans and then it proceeded to crack across the whole windshield. This guy is putting a new one on!
We had our Good Friday service.
Our worship pastor read John's version of the crucifixion. The power of God's Word...it is so difficult to hear what our savior went through for us. But as dark as that day was, when death and Satan thought they had won.....little did they know that Sunday was coming!!!
This is Steve's birthday cake for tomorrow....about as chocolatey as you can get!!!
I also spent the day, yesterday and today, molding ice cream. This is a tradition in my home (since I was a little girl) and we are having several small kids over for Easter dinner....should be a big hit!
Well, that is my week. I will be seeing all y'all soon!!!! Have a wonderful Easter and take a moment to thank your Savior for all He accomplished for YOU today!
