Resurrection Sunday

Easter is probably my favorite holiday. It is a great celebration of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, it symbolizes new life and new beginnings. 

{It also is the start of spring here in ND--which is always a blessing after a long cold winter!!}

Today was a glorious day filled with praising God, family, and fun.
We started the day off with a little candy hunt at home and an Easter gift for Ryder-a new bike.  
Then we went to church-what a glorious service!! Wonderful music and an excellent message!
After church we had dinner with my extended family, then came home this afternoon and got company and went to visit some neighbors in the evening.

There is nothing more glorious than what Christ did for us on that cross. He died for our sins, making us new again-all we must do is believe in Him and know that He died for us!
  What a wonderful  day to remember this!

This song just touches my heart, so I must share! It just says it all! 

I have come to the realization that I must do more in my christian walk. I need to attend church more regularly and read my bible on a daily basis. This is no time to take this lightly. Jesus is coming back for us and I have to be ready!  I need to show my son {more often} the power there is in reading God's word.
I must be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. And I can only do this through Jesus as my guide.
