An Easter Filled with Grace

by Janice

Tonight, we dyed and decorated Easter eggs. Tomorrow, I will dress my children in Easter clothes and take them to church.

In the afternoon, my children will hunt for eggs and devour chocolate by the handful. I will take pictures throughout it all.

Here is one of my favorite songs, Grace Like Rain by Todd Agnew with clips from The Passion of the Christ. I know I put a video with Passion clips up on Good Friday as well, but nothing brings Christ’s sacrifice home to me like seeing what he really endured for me.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter celebrating the miracle of Christ rising from the grave — and the grace he gives us all.

Easter is truly my favorite holiday. While the bunny is fun, and there’s always tons of candy to be shared, there is no candy that’s half as sweet as what my Lord did for me. He endured the beatings, the cross, and even death to conquer it all so that I might live with Him forever. What a mighty God we serve!

May you and your family have a blessed Easter! Thank you for reminding all of us how truly special today is.
