This Easter the SON was shining and the SUN was shining! I enjoyed both very much!
I love to celebrate that my Savior is alive!! Death could not contain Him!
A song by David Crowder kept popping up in my head all weekend. As most of you know, I lost my Mom to cancer in September 2009. While Mom was sick and we were making lots of visits to doctor’s offices we would listen to Christian radio in the car while we drove.
I can remember listening to this song as I was driving, with my Mom sitting in the passenger seat.
I remember thinking, “I know He loves me, but why am I here going through this?”
I would have to remind myself that Christ died on a cross to save me, a sinner, and any suffering that I go through cannot compare to what He has gone through.
I love Romans 5:3-5, it says, “We also have joy with our troubles, because we know that these troubles produce patience. And patience produces character, and character produces hope. And this hope will never disappoint us, because God has poured out his love to fill our hearts. He gave us his love through the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to us.” NCV
That’s it, because of Easter we have Hope and it will not disappoint us!
Easter 2010, our first Easter without Mom.
Thankful that He’s Alive,
