Happy Easter

 He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:3


I slept in this morning .. i was so exhausted!  I didn’t get up until almost 10 am!!  My day has been spent mostly just relaxing. Later in the day hubby took our bedroom AC apart and cleaned it as it was really dusty and we were getting a musty smell when you turned it on.  My allergies and asthma do not like musty.

Hubby and I did our own thing for church this morning.  We haven’t decided where we will be going to church.  The church we attended last year is having some problems and we just do not want to be involved in any drama.   So we spent time together reading and studying God’s word.  We also spent time together rejoicing in this most wonderful day of the year.  To us Easter is a very special day.

To some people Easter is the meaning of the bunny rabbit bringing candy and toys.  When our kids were little the Easter bunny left them goodies but we also celebrated the true meaning of Easter. 

The meaning of Easter is Jesus Christ's victory over death. His resurrection symbolizes the blood and pain Jesus Christ suffered as life drained out of him on the cross.  Jesus chose to give his life and bear the sins of the world.  We are promised eternal life is granted to all who believe in Him. The meaning of Easter also symbolizes the complete verification of all that Jesus preached and taught during his ministry. If He had not risen from the dead, if He had merely died and not been resurrected, He would have been considered just another teacher. However, His resurrection changed all that and gave final and irrefutable proof that He was really the Son of God and that He had conquered death once and for all.

Honor the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for us all.
Our youngest son was suppose to show up for a cookout but as the day went on he didn’t show up.  I had cancelled plans with friends Georgia and Cliff to get together for cards because he was coming.  I have to admit neither of us were too disappointed that he didn’t show up as we are both a bit under the weather today. 

It’s been a dreary day, no rain but looked as though it could any time and it’s a bit on the cool side.  It has felt good to just relax in our comfy home and have some time to ourselves.  This past week has been fun being with our family.  But we were ready for a day of quiet time.
