Blessings this Week: 04.10.2015

We are so blessed. 

Our Jesus not only died to save us from our sins, but he didn't stay dead! 

He defeated death and rose again. Light overcomes the darkness! Hallelujah!

Easter sunrise service

A Easter dinner, and of course, the traditional Egg Rolling Contest!

I feel like I don't have enough time. I think it's a common feeling, really. I get home from work, get a few things done, and all of the sudden it's 10:00 pm and I should really get ready for bed. How does that happen? I mean, after all, the number of hours in a day hasn't changed.... 

Some days, I get a glimpse... 

What blessings have you seen this week? 

Have a great weekend!
