we took 1 picture. and got this! pretty impressive.
it was right after breakfast, so we all look a little sleepy, but it was nice to have it over with!
i made those ties for the boys to wear to my sister's wedding...1 1/2 yrs ago! they are getting a bit short...
i couldn't JUST eat a donut. my paleo ways die hard. the donut was yummy...but not as good as i thought it was going to be.
the joy and freedom and celebration of Easter is so much sweeter when you observe Lent. but after giving up sugar/sweets for the last 3 years, it is also true that nothing...NOTHING is sweeter that His love. while i fully enjoyed eating what i wanted yesterday, not a bit of it satisfied me like His love does. also...just like that verse (1 corinthians 10:23) says, " "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial." even though i had the FREEDOM to eat whatever i wanted...i knew i shouldn't eat some of it because it was going to hurt my stomach and make me miserable. i still ate some of what i shouldn't. and i suffered for it...just like i do in my life...i look to the things i KNOW won't satisfy like He will...and i suffer the consequences.
Easter. what a beautiful day. and not an egg hunt or egg basket to be found. it's just too hard to focus on those things AND keep our minds and hearts on what the day is TRULY about.
