Happy Easter

Another year has come around and I am reminded of my daughter not being with us again. Easter is hard for us. Ruby was born Easter weekend of 2005 and there is always that reminder now that she will never spend another Easter with us. She is a very lucky girl and gets to spend her Easters with her Saviour, the reason why we celebrate Easter.

I want to encourage you to really think about why you celebrate Easter this year. Are you chasin the bunny with eggs in hopes of chocolate or are you thinking of our Saviour who came to this earth and died a horrific death so that you could spend eternity with Him? It was an amazing sacrifice for Him to be seperated from Abba and live through constant persecution to become a sacrifice for my life and sins. I don't think that I could do it.

If you don't know Christ and want to spend eternity with Him, it's so very simple. All you need to do is pray and accept Christ into your heart, get yourself hooked up with a good church, read your bible and strive to live a good life that honours God. It may be hard at first and you may have to give up some things that you really love, but I tell you it's worth it. Think of the alternative, a life without Christ in hell. I don't what hell will be like but I know it's not with Christ so I tell you it's going to suck no matter what it is. Life is not easy as a Christian and you are constantly tempted and it's not an easy life, but it's so worth it, I promise you.

Have a Happy Easter and try to think about the sacrifice God made by having Jesus come here to die for us. If you really think about it you will realize just how amazing it was. Love you guys. =)

Denise - I'm thinking of you all this spring. I was thinking about and praying for you earlier this week and hope that you know you are covered in prayers.

Thanks Emily, we really need them this week. It would have been Ruby's 4th birthday this coming Thursday on the 16th and we're having a hard time right now. We're really missing sweet Roo and just want to be with her. I can't wait for that day. I feel your prayers and they help me to get through my day. ((hugs))
