Happy Easter…A Little Late

by Katie on April 21, 2014

I hope you all had a blessed Easter weekend!  I had every intention of getting this post out before Easter, but sometimes things don’t go as planned.  SO…instead of forgetting about it I thought I would do it a day late.

I hope you all had a great Easter and got to spend some time with your family and friends.   While it’s great to hunt Easter eggs, I made a collage of our egg hunt below, it’s so important to remember the reason we celebrate Easter.  What a joy it is to celebrate a risen Savior!

Whenever I think of Easter I think about the hymn “He Lives”.  We didn’t sing it yesterday at church like we usually do, but I had it in my head all weekend on repeat.

I serve a risen Savior
He’s in the world today.
I know that He is living,
Whatever men may say.
I see His hand of mercy;
I hear His voice of cheer;
And just the time I need Him
He’s always near.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.

He lives – salvation to impart! How amazing to know that we can be forgiven and have eternal life because of what Jesus did for us that day on Calvary. There is no greater gift of love than this!

We got to spend some time with both sides of our families and had a really nice weekend! It was the first Easter for both of my little nephews, one of which is this little dude above.

We put bunny ears on Ezra and put him in a giant basket so we could get some cute pictures. It was all fun and laughing until he tried to climb out and toppled over out of the basket into the grass. Ezra wasn’t happy, but we all took a moment to laugh…it was hilarious. I’m glad I captured a picture and a video of the whole thing. Haha.  We just love that little guy to pieces.

How was your Easter?
