Happy Easter to all!
This day finds me a bit happy, a tad sad, with a little hope thrown in. I’ve neglected my blog as of late simply because my life is boring, quite frankly. I do all the things that everyone else does. I have a wonderful bundle of two year old joy that keeps me entertained. I try to exercise. I try to read. I attempt to write. I avoid cooking and cleaning as much as possible. I have a stack of laundry that begs for my attention. It’s really the same, ol’, same ol’ day after day. I feel that I don’t have anything profound to say anymore.
I just feel quiet.
But today is Easter and so in an attempt to preserve some family memories, I’ll blog.
I’m happy today because I’m so truly blessed with every good thing that really matters in this world: family, friends, faith, and health.
I’m a tad sad because we haven’t been to church for the past two Easters. We have yet to find a good church home and that makes me sad. Recently, when we went back to our hometown we visited our church and it was so wonderful, so refreshing. I wish my dear old Briarwood would pack up and move here, then I would have the perfect world. Sure, I understand that I don’t need a church to worship, I can worship right in my own front yard, but I miss the fellowship and the sharing with a body of believers.
But of course, I keep my hope and I believe good things are always heading my way. A wonderful church, included.
For Easter Sunday, we did the “thing”. We colored eggs and had an egg hunt.
We attempted to take a family picture with a self timer on our camera. I regret to inform you that we did not get a good one. Big surprise!
The house is now scattered with candy wrappings and EK is green up to her elbows.
She fell asleep after her sugar crash reading Beauty and the Beast and I am soon to join her for a little siesta. All in all, I’d say we had some great Easter success.
He lives, he lives, Christ Jesus lives today.
You ask me how I know he lives? He lives within my heart.
I sang that to EK today, and she got a kick out of it, especially when I tried to hit the high notes.
I hope you too had a blessed Easter, spent with your loved ones celebrating the true meaning of the day.
God Bless you and yours.
My heart soared when I checked in yet again today, to see if just maybe there was a post and a photo of EK, and to my surprise there you ALL were! Made my day!!!! Can’t believe how precious Emma looks, and Ash is so beautiful. You have done an amazing job with your little family and should be so proud They should feel blessed to have you in their lives, as well (laundry and all!) God is good and i am thankful for our many blessings. missed you, my sweet girl … until next time . Donna H.
