Happy Resurrection Day!
We are almost five months into 2014 and my bucket list is still looking pretty bare. I have given up soda (with the occasional relapse from time to time), I have visited a new state (the exciting state of Alabama), signed up for acupuncture (although I haven’t actually completed it yet), and we have an upcoming trip to California very soon.
But, if I don’t get a chance to cross anything else off of this year’s list I know I won’t be missing out. On this Easter Sunday I am thankful for the life that I have been blessed with and the everlasting future to come because of Christ’s sacrifice for us all. I am very proud of my husband for professing his dedication and life to Christ through baptism today as we joined a new loving church family. I am excited to call Bible Baptist West our new church home.
Tonight as I sit across from my husband and cuddle my two little girls (Baby Addie and Miss Lily), my heart could literally burst. They are enough. They are everything. They represent my purpose and God’s plan for me on earth. I may not have gotten many items crossed off of that list, but my life has never felt more complete. As I hold her in my arms, I can’t help but think that she is the greatest thing that I have ever done and the greatest gift I will ever receive in this life.
Thank you Christ for your sacrifice, your mercy, and your overwhelming love. I am humbled and amazed by your love for me!
