Blessings of Easter!

This Easter was SO blessed!!!

My babies came home Saturday evening – super tired and cranky, so they went to bed early! We arrived at church bright and early ready to participate in “Watch The Lamb” where my kiddos and their choirs were singing two times per service for all three services! Our entire children’s building is transformed to look like the streets of Jerusalem!

My kids got to dress up in their costumes, my daughter and her group were peddling goods in the hallways between services! The kids all sang two beautiful songs – one about how Jesus took our debt, our sin and nailed it to the cross. We are free because of His sacrifice! The 2nd song was a bit more upbeat and fun! The kids all love it and how it talks about us being FREE!!! After church we were blessed to be able to spend time with our family at my parent’s house! My brother and I hid 116 eggs… for 4 kids!

20140422-122543.jpgMy heart’s desire is that you know the Joy that my kids and I know. That you know the freedom and hope that comes from the sacrifice Jesus made on that cross so many years ago. The best part is that He didn’t stay there. Three days later, He rose from that grave and gave us HOPE! If you want to know more, please contact me! My hope is that everyone can have the hope and joy that I have!!
