Easter weekend.

I am so looking forward to this Easter weekend! Chris and I are going to his parents house and I am SO looking forward to it. I'm pretty certain that the weekend will be filled with fishing, shooting guns, lots of laughing, egg hunting, and a wonderful church service. Sounds like a good weekend to me!

I love knowing that next Easter we'll have little mister here to celebrate with. To share the Easter story with. To dress up in darling clothes for church.

I feel like the true meaning of Easter, even more than Christmas, is forgotten in the egg dyeing and the pictures with the Easter bunny.

Here's a poem I found that really does remind us of the true meaning of Easter.

Easter Joy

Jesus came to earth,
To show us how to live,
How to put others first,
How to love and how to give.

Then He set about His work,
That God sent Him to do;
He took our punishment on Himself;
He made us clean and new.

He could have saved Himself,
Calling angels from above,
But He chose to pay our price for sin;
He paid it out of love.

Our Lord died on Good Friday,
But the cross did not destroy
His resurrection on Easter morn
That fills our hearts with joy.

Now we know our earthly death,
Like His, is just a rest.
We'll be forever with Him
In heaven, where life is best.

So we live our lives for Jesus,
Think of Him in all we do.
Thank you Savior; Thank you Lord.
Help us love like you!

I've had quite a rough week so I'm looking forward to being reminded of the joy! I hope you are too! I'll be sure to actually post some pictures from this weekend! Be a blessing to someone!
