“He has risen; on the third day, he has risen!” And she kept singing it from her heart. If you would have told me I wouldn’t have believed it, but my girl has the Holy Spirit inside of her.
I even caught her this morning, with her baby’s stroller parked next to her, reading the devotion.
She wows me more everyday, and she convicts me of God’s FRESH spirit in each and everyone of us. We just have to tap into it.
Today at church, I was reminded of the importance of the resurrection. This is the crux of our beliefs! Death no longer has power over us except the DEATH to all of the wrongs we have done and the old selves that we know need to depart. Thank you Jesus for reminding us of this today, and THANK YOU for sending me TATUM to keep me reminded of how much you love each and every one of us.
Your fragrance is inviting and may we always….always…invite you in…Happy Easter 2016. Thank you, Mama and Doug for making it even more special.
Preparing for Easter this year with a 3-year old took on a whole new meaning. I knew she would be bombarded with Easter bunny paraphenalia, baskets, and loads of chocolate bunnies and peeps. But what does it all mean!!!??
First, I bought her many books about the meaning of Easter. God Gave us Easter, The Bernstein Bear’s Easter, and Veggie Tales Easter. And she read them and GOT IT. “Jesus died for me and He came back; God loves you!” Pretty much she gets the concept of Him dying and coming back to life to forgive us for good. So it was with this message that we stuffed eggs with three jelly beans, band-aid, a verse. Three jelly beans= on the third day he came back to life; the band-aid=he heals our wounds and forgives us. Pretty cool! Off we went to deliver baskets to our friends: Susan and Jason, John and Marsha, Denise and Petro, Amy and Jack, and Robert and Jennie….just to name a few.
It was time to color some eggs with mama, and this was truly a hit because Tatum got to dunk. Something about the whole immersion thing that just is exhilarating!Time to decorate. So, unfortunately, I bought jumbo eggs, so nothing fit around their large circumferences. Lesson learned.
Tatum spent time just praising the Lord and singing her heart out. She never tires of this, this little animated bunny of mine.
We enjoyed spending time with Morgan and Nyla and Kelly later on. My goodness these three lovelies make my heart sing. Or maybe bounce!Happy Easter!!!
On the way home from school today, Tatum asked me if we could go swimming. I mentioned we had music class and she burst into tears. Now, I know she loves music, and seeing her get this torn up over missing swimming was over the top. Yes, she is quite animated, but something was amiss. Within two seconds, I looked back and she was snoozing. Ahhhh…that was it. Tired and acting a bit like she was wearing cranky pants.
I took her inside to make her lunch, and she decided to just finish her nap in from of the front door on that lovely door mat which I’m sure was the dirtiest flooring in the house. Her baba did not even get touched.
By the way, this is her usual position to sleep: Fingers inserted in the mouth, baby in arm, booty up in the air. Lucky girl; I want to be in her shoes some days and just fall asleep anywhere!
