About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

He Lives!

  I Serve a risen Savior, He's in the world today;
  I know that He is living whatever men may say;
  I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
  And just the time I need Him, He's always near.

  Chorus:
  He lives, He lives,
  Christ Jesus lives today!
  He walks with me and talks with me
  Along life's narrow way.
  He lives, He lives,
  Salvation to impart!
  You ask me how I know He lives?
  He lives within my heart.

   I love this hymn and it has been playing in my head all day.  Today is such a day of celebration!  Yes, we do love the bunny at our house, but Jesus is the real reason for Easter.  Have a lovely day with your families, Easter egg hunts, church and brunch, but please remember why today is so very special.  Jesus died on the cross and arose again!  He Lives! What a gift God has given to us.  The most incredible sacrifice the world will ever know.
