Easter

The feelings I have each year during Holy Week are indescribable.  Beginning with Palm Sunday into Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday I have an overwhelming feeling of humbleness, gratefulness, and the real love Jesus Christ has for each of us.  I feel so unworthy of what He did on the cross.  It's just an incredible time for reflection and meditating on the truth.  For me, it's also a time for change.  A time to challenge myself to be all that God has envisioned me to be.  I know I was created for something more, but what is it?  I am on this journey and am committed to listening to Him whisper to my heart so that I can find out what He is calling me to do.

This Easter, something even more exciting happened.  Several weeks prior to Easter it was announced during one of our church services that our Pastor would be baptizing folks again this year on Easter Sunday.  On the way home that day Isaac told me he wanted to be baptized again.  He said he is ready to be made new again, his slate wiped clean, and to live the way God intends.  My heart overflowed with gratefulness.  So, on Easter I got to watch my precious husband be made new.  It was unbelievable to see the scores of others who had made the same decision.  I am so grateful for the way God is working in Isaac's and my heart and marriage.  Thank you to those who have encouraged us and supported us along the way.
