He is Risen!!!


My Easter was pretty great. We went to church, my sister and I donning our summery dresses that we haven't worn for quite sometime, and then had lunch with both sets of grandparents at my grandparents' house. It was delicious - healthy, but still delicious. Ham, potatoes, broccoli salad ♥, and deviled eggs ♥ (I had three). My family has been trying to eat healthy as of late, but we were still allowed to have our chocolate crosses from Grandma and Grandpa...and, boy, were they delicious :-).

After lunch, Haley and I hid eggs for our younger siblings. They had coins in them instead of chocolate ☺. They had a fun little Easter egg hunt around my grandparents' house and then opened the eggs to find coins inside! Hehe.
Amidst all the bunnies, chocolate, mounds of food, eggs, and other Easter hullabaloo, it's great to remember - as it is every holiday - the real Reason for the season. I know people say that on Christmas, but really, it's just as true on Easter. JESUS CHRIST is the Reason for Easter - not bunnies and chocolate! Christ rose from the grave! He is so amazing...He always keeps His promises - 2,000 years ago and today. Christ's love is amazing...never forget how much God loves you, and remember the true Reason for the season! HE IS RISEN! Just as He said! And He is coming back again someday (no one knows when)!

Matthew 28:6 {NIV}
He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.
