Easter is ....

Jesus Christ's victory over DEATH!
"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me, though he may die, he shall live."
-John 11: 25

Drivin' Poppy's tractor!!!

This KID loves OUTSIDE!! He enjoyed last Saturday riding the tractor, throwing rocks, climbing trailers, and many other "man" things with Poppy! We had a fabulous Easter and enjoyed spending time with the ones we love. What an amazing gift ... eternal life granted to all who believe in him. Easter (as with most religious holiday's) are overshadowed with the candy and gifts of the season. It is hard sometimes to explain to little ones in words they understand the true reason to celebrate. I will make it my mission to do my very best to teach York the real reason for our Holiday fun. I want him to enjoy all the extras but most importantly know in his heart why we have them. Even this year, we walked outside to our cross in the yard and we would say "Cross". As I switched the sash from purple to black and finally to white I would explain the reasons... I know he doesn't understand but one day he will and maybe next year he can change the sashes with me and know exactly what they represent! It is a wonderful time of year and other than the pollen (Ah-chew!) flowers are blooming, grass is growing, and the sky is a perfect shade of blue. God's creation is unbelievably beautiful. Let me remind you to just look outside and say "Thanks!"... our Lord is pretty Great!
