Happy Easter!!

Madison's Library Easter project from Tuesday.

Easter Eggs!

Madison bought me these when we went grocery shopping. Wasn't that nice?!

Who's that doggie in the window?

We hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend!!

Remember.....Easter is more than chocolate bunny's and Easter egg hunts. Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. We celebrate his resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Last year we made these fun resurrection cookies. We didn't get a chance to make them this year, but we will have to remember to make these along with our Easter eggs each year.

Do you know Jesus?

God is crazy about you. He loves you and wants you to live forever
with Him. (
Jeremiah 29:11)

The Bible tells us that not one of us is without sin.
Romans 3:23)

Not only do we break God’s commandments, we fall short
of His perfect standards. Even if your good deeds outweigh the bad,
you’ll never be perfect as God requires us to be. Just one sin is
enough to keep us out of heaven. (
James 2:10)

The good news is, God sent his son, Jesus, to earth as a man over
2,000 years ago. He lived a perfect life, without sin. He then died on
the cross for our sins. (
John 3:16)

The judgment that God should have put upon us, He put on His son.
Because He loved you so much, Jesus died in your place. He then rose
again. (
1 Corinthians 15:4-8)

If you turn from sin, and believe in Jesus, He will take away your
guilt and you will go to heaven when you die. (
John 3:16)

Jesus Christ alone can save you. If you believe that Jesus died and,
rose again and that his death is sufficient payment for your sins then
pray and ask God to come into your life. (
Romans 10:13)

First, admit that you have sinned. Tell God you are sorry and commit
to turn away from sinning. Say to Him, I put my faith in Jesus Christ.
Ask God to make Himself real to you, and He will. (
Jeremiah 29:13)

Happy Easter!!

Your daughter is so adorable! Plus this reminded me how much I miss coloring Easter eggs! As a broke college student, this might be just the thing to help cheer me up!
