He is risen!

I hope you've had an awesome Holy Week! It's been incredible for me. God has spoken so many truths to me, allowed me to rejoice in good memories, and wiped the tears of my painful memories. This is my first Easter without my dad ... but he is celebrating with my risen Savior!
Saturday we hosted a family gathering, and it was such a blessing.
Kambry and Aunt Sheri reading ... and reading ... and reading
Reading some more
Playing hide and seek
Looking at old pictures
Rejoicing in filled eggs

I'll show you how this game is played

Add one, drop one

Ya'll carry your puny buckets; I've got my eggs!

Big Sis
Can't catch me
Noah and his bounty
My big kids getting some air

Future beard plan

Blow-me-away cuteness!


I am reminded of Easter two years ago. We were in China, receiving our precious gift, Kambry Hope. We attended Easter service in the church on the island. The big kids were spending two weeks with the Muellers, and every morning I'd have new pictures in my inbox of their fun times. Treasured memories.
Whatever the past week has held or what the new week has in store, I pray you can rejoice that we serve a risen Savior!
"He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay." Matthew 28:6

Happy Easter!!!

Three Easters ago, we were all jet lagged and newly home from China with Amy! That was the most precious Easter morning service - so thankful to be there - worshipping with my new daughter.

Your children are precious...
