Easter 2014

 
This weekend was full of fun, and I am seriously exhausted today, and so are the kiddos.
 
 I Thank the Lord that we are free to worship and spread the Gospel where we live. I often think of our brothers and sisters in Christ that don't have these freedoms, and often persecuted and imprisoned for Loving our precious JESUS.
 
He loved us so much to suffer and die and take the burden of the world's sin on his shoulders. How heavy his heart must have been as he walked to the cross. God showed his ultimate Love for us that day on the cross. And the best part is that he was risen again revealing himself to many of his disciples and other believers before he went back to heaven with the Father. Praise him from whom all blessings flow. He offers a free gift to you. What an amazing God we serve.
 
We celebrated Easter all weekend long. First with precious Mia's birthday Friday night, Saturday a neighborhood Easter Egg hunt at Mimi and Papaw's, then Sunday Church to worship and praise the one who took our shame away, then onto my in laws for lunch and Easter egg hunts with the cousins.
 
It was a Busy but wonderful weekend.

Love this picture. Oliver had filled his basket up and was helping Mia. So sweet.

 
Corbin and Austin showing their finds.

 
Mia is actually standing in the petting zoo. This would've freaked her out before. Yeah for milestones!!!

The boys petting an Axis deer. They were excited, because we are usually hunting them.
