Easter....

Well....the plastic grass is put away...
the baskets are put up...
half of the hard-boiled eggs have already found their way into an egg salad sandwich...

Easter is over.

This day has capped what has been an emotional week.
Easter week shall forever have a new meaning for our family.

My mother-in-law met Jesus on Palm Sunday. And on this Easter, her absence is palpable. It doesn't, and probably will never, feel the same.

But, on this Easter, she would want us to remember the sacrifice that was made, that made her admission into heaven possible. Jesus, dying on the cross, making us all worthy of heaven and God's grace.

May we never forget the reason for the season. May we enjoy the chocolate, peeps, jelly beans and family dinners...but always have, in the back of our minds, the real reason that we should be celebrating...

Our salvation.

God Bless you...if you are a reader of my blog. If you are not...God Bless you, too.

I am so thankful for my family...friends....and for my Lord and Salvation. I hope that you are, too.
