What a great Easter

Amy, Gavin and I had a great Easter.

Sunday started off with a wonderful and extremely moving church service.
The music was incredible as usual. If you have not been to the Quarry and heard the music worship, you are missing out. There are some incredibly talented musicians that volunteer their time almost every Sunday....Thanks.

Probably the most moving part of the service was a skit that the drama team put on. You can view it HERE. It is not our drama team, but you get the idea (thanks Margaret).

We finished the day surrounded by family and food.

What a wonderful day to celebrate our Lords return.

He did what....

What a bitter-sweet weekend.

As I am growing in my faith, I am beginning to truly realize what Jesus did for me/us. But sometimes wonder why...for me? Do I really deserve something so great?

It's easy to say he died for us. But really "died"?

He was severely beaten, made to wear a crown of thorns, carry the very cross that he would hang from, and then NAILED to it.

I have worked in construction and have stepped on a nail before and it does not feel good, to say the least. Imagine........that nail stays in your foot, plus there is a nail in each of your hands.

The truly amazing thing is, Jesus knew what was going to happen and suffered this horrific pain and death for ME and YOU.

WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!

It just goes so fast

Our little dude is growing up so fast. At 11 months, which is my favorite stage so far, he picks up on stuff so fast.

He shakes his head "no" at us when we tell him no, as if to say "No, No" to us.

He is insisting on feeding himself, both with and without utensils He loves his stuffed animals He is also standing on his own.
And is a stacking machine! I think he is faster than me!! Later...

Still here

I know it's been a while since my last post, and to be honest I really haven't been doing much. My life is kind of in a funk right now. I hate funks, they are so hard to shake.

On the bright side things, Amy and I had a chance to go out for the evening with some of our neighbors and had a blast. Also, Amy and I get to go on a little date on Friday. The other love of Amy's life, besides food, is wine (I think I am in there somewhere), so we are going to a wine tasting at the Monticello community center.

There is just not much to talk, or write about. Later for now

I also found this quote on a friends blog and thought it was great.

“Let go of what you think life should be so you can experience the life you have.” - Rhonda Britten, founder of the Fearless Living Institute
