It's easter morning and Alex comes down to find a basket has been left for him along with some very cool candy filled eggs, he is very happy because he forgot that today was Easter.
Upon counting the eggs he realized that there are 5 of them..."One for each person in our family" and I am touched by his generosity and willingness to share his easter blessing with all of us. I learn something new every day from this precious little boy who teaches me love and caring on a different level no matter what he is doing.
I wonder which egg I will choose...it's a tough choice, they all look so cute and I'm sure the contents are yummy and tasty.
Today we reflect on our Lord and His sacrifice on the cross for us and we rejoice in His resurrection. We don't have a big easter dinner planned, just a quiet family day later on but we are going to be sharing a feast for breakfast just as soon as everyone wakes up around here.
With OUR EYES we see The beauty of Easter as the earth awakens once more
With OUR EARS we hear The birds sing sweetly to tell us Spring again is here
With OUR HANDS we pick the golden daffodils and the fragrant hyacinths
But only with OUR HEARTS can we feel the MIRACLE of GOD'S LOVE which redeems all men
And only with OUR SOUL can we make our 'pilgrimage to God' and inherit His Easter Gift of ETERNAL LIFE.
Last night I actually had some time to scrapbook and it felt wonderful to sit at my table and create again. I chose some older pictures from almost 2 years ago and it reminded me of a time in our lives when we were happy and didn't have a care in the world...just having fun and playing in the pool at mom's. Who knows, maybe I'll get to scrap again later tonight.
