happy easter + a giveaway!

He Is Risen!!

I'm putting it out there--I love the Easter holiday even more than Christmas!  I know.  Don't get me wrong.  Christmas is very special to me, and I love that time of year.  But Easter just makes me feel humbled, and grateful, and oh so happy because that's why Christmas happened--so that Jesus could come to this world and do something for us that we could never do for ourselves.  And I'm so thankful for what He did!





I hope you have a wonderful Easter!!

Happy Easter to you too, Aly! I struggle with both Christmas and Easter at times, because of the commercialism of it all, but I'm trying to teach my kids the true reasons for these holidays. Hope you and your family have a blessed Easter!
