We decorated the boiled eggs yesterday. Stickers, of course. Decided the whole egg-dyeing thing we can attempt in a few years. Three toddlers are totally content with taping chick faces and bunny faces on the eggs. We did the Easter egg hunt in the back yard. Lots of peeking involved while hiding the eggs! It reminds me of when I was little and hunted eggs in the yard with my younger brother and sisters! What joyful memories! I even found a bunny shirt my mom and I painted with puff paint back in the day (love the 1990s) and showed Linley that she could wear it this year. I really am a sap. I, of course will have to get a picture, but try to keep it under control because I know my desire for pictures can get a little, shall, we say, annoying? I want to remember everything I can about family memories and share that with future generations. It helps connect people and gives them a sense of belonging with translates into greater self-esteem, too.

I wonder what Jesus’s mother felt when her precious Son was treated so harshly, beaten and spat on, and nailed to a cross. Her Son she knew was special, whom she rocked as a tiny baby and sang to sleep, was humiliated. I hate seeing injustice and people treated badly, especially someone in my family. She had to feel the same way, since she was human too! Nobody wants to see someone they care about treated unfairly. They did not understand He was the Son of God! Her sweet Baby Boy was hurt – emotionally and physically. How painful it must have been to watch for his momma.

The good news is that, after three days, the women visited the tomb and found the massive stone in front of it had been moved! Confused, the women heard the two men tell them, “He is not here, but He has been resurrected” (Luke 24:6). This is the reason we have hope. If not for this miraculous resurrection of Jesus, He would be just another good man at best. He is our Lord and Savior Who is more powerful than death!

Our toddlers in the house are beginning to understand that Jesus is the only One with real power. He is the only One Who loves us with an everlasting love. He came to save us from our mistakes and sin. He came to make us alive again – to heal our brokenness. We have a lot of “stuff” going on in our lives at any given time. We all need a Savior because, no matter how good we think we are, we are never “that good.” Praise to God for sending His Son Who loves us as much on our worst day as He does on our best day! This is worth celebrating. You can find the complete narrative in Luke chapters 22 – 24. The story becomes even more alive as we put ourselves into it and empathize with the people who lived this!

Have a fantastic week, knowing that your Savior loves you and thinks you were worth giving His life for!
