I’m sure you thought you would open this post to see lots of lots of pictures of our family all decked out in our Easter attire, digging through our Easter baskets, and hunting tons of colorful eggs. Well, that is not the case. This Easter was not typical…
We didn’t dye Easter eggs, but the Easter Bunny did stop by with a few goodies:
I didn’t take any “formal” pictures, but take my word for it: Mackaylan and Mickey were dressed to impress. Mackaylan has been looking forward to wearing her “Easter prom dress” for weeks! Yesterday when she came home from school she put her dress back on and we went outside for a quick photo shoot!
I didn’t even go to church on Sunday, but Lydia and I went and watched the dress rehearsal on Saturday night. This year we had an Easter drama that incorporated music, acting and interpretive movement. It was amazing and many lives were changed.
However, no matter what did or did not happen this Easter, it’s great to know that I serve a risen Savior! I had to do a lot of self-talk to remind myself that it’s not about me, my expectations, or traditions. Easter (and everyday) is all about Jesus Christ and the sacrifice He made so that I can live eternally with Him!
