Easter Already?!

Wow...how time flies. Seems it was just turning 2008 and now the bunny is hopping around. It's cold here, again. A little rainy. But Spring is just over the horizon.

Georgia spent the night at Grammie and Poppie's. She "helping" Grammie make Easter cookies this morning. We'll dye eggs later today. She'll have a rather creative day. ;)

Then, I finally fire up the grill after a few months delay and serve some steaks. Mmmmm. Nothing like some meat off the fire!

It's still rather funny what all goes on during Easter. Bunnies, candies, baskets, eggs, sunrise services, big hats. But the real meaning of Easter has nothing to do with all of this. It's Jesus Christ's victory over death.

His death, burial, and resurrection symbolizes the complete verification of all that Jesus preached and taught during His three-year ministry. If He had not risen from the dead, if He had merely died and was buried, He would have been considered just another great teacher...a good man. However, His victory over death proved that He was the Son of God...God among us...and that is why the Scriptures are alive and well today. The Living Word is just that...words that are alive and relevant today even though they capture a time over 2000 years ago.

May you know His love today....

Life Resumes

No snow. No ice. Looks like this will be the most uneventful winter since being up here. However, who knows...as odd as this weather zone is, there could a blizzard next week! :)

G and I are over our crud. Kim's still got a couple more days to go. Otherwise, G is lovin her ballet class. She's goes every Thursday and twirls around in her tutu. She loves it. Much better than the basketball class she went to once a week. Who knows, she might get a hankering for it but it's all about the ballet right now. I haven't had the pleasure of taking her as of yet - just her mom and Grammie.

Enjoy your weekend...
