I really, really need to sit down and make a long drawn-out post of all the super fun things we've done in the past couple of weeks but I just don't have time for that today! We had a fabulous visit with my parents and I took a ton of pictures (over 300 actually) but since today is "Basket Day" -in our family the day we hunt eggs and exchange Easter goodies- I wouldn't have time to do it any justice.
I cannot however let this day pass without noting the true meaning of all this candy, plastic grass and gaudy baskets. I cannot think of the Cross without crying. My Jesus gave His own precious, perfect life so that I can live. The true meaning of Easter is, of course, the awesome Resurrection, but to think of the suffering of my Savior breaks my heart. Don't let it bypass you: HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU. If that does not bring you to your knees with tears in your eyes then you are not giving it enough thought. Thank You, sweet Jesus for giving Your life for mine. Let me live in a way worthy of Your sacrifice.
"Were you there when they crucified my Lord? Were you there when they crucified my Lord? Oh, oh, oooh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. Were you there when they crucified my Lord?"
"May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world."

Let us glory in the cross! Every single sin, every single one, big and small covered by His own precious blood! Yes, that is truly AWESOME, something only God and His Son could do! Praise be to God! CELEBRATE! CELEBRATE! CELEBRATE!~ReplyDelete
The Good Friday service at church brought tears to my eyes (and Autumn's) over Jesus' suffering. Easter however, was all about His resurrection and it was GLORIOUS!!!ReplyDelete
Gaudy Easter baskets? My girls have Longaberger's and they're NOT gaudy. They do however have to reuse them year after year!
Great post....thankful always for the reminder that it's about HIM and not about me.
