a miracle that never fades...

The colored eggs are in the attic...the baskets tucked away...the Easter meal shared among family is now a distant memory and yet the truth of Easter never fades.  

Every new day is a gift to celebrate our risen Lord.  

A reminder that I have been given life because of His grace.

I am forgiven.  

I am redeemed.  

I am a child of the King.  

Several times this week Lily has said "let's talk more about Jesus".  
I love that her heart desires to know more about our Savior.  

That her childlike faith strengthens mine.  


Right now we are reading The Story for Children.  
As timing would have it, this week we were reading all about the events that led up to the crucifixion of Jesus. 

The resurrection eggs we made together last week came full circle 
as she continued to ask questions and connect the dots.  

Every time we saw a cross this week (which was almost daily), she would say, 
"Mommy Jesus died on the cross so that I can have life!"  


Thank you Lord for using our daughter to remind me that your miracle never fades. 

You are waiting each day for me to run into your arms.  



No greater love


Lily and I spent most of our morning decorating eggs together.  She was in her element creating, painting, gluing and making a beautiful mess :))


She is a creative soul at heart and I love seeing her joy unfold when she is free to explore and do what  makes her heart sing.  I asked her tonight after reading our Bible story what was her favorite part of our day and she immediately said, "decorating eggs with you".  

 Last week while we were on a walk she found this stick and insisted that we make a cross out of it.  Then we talked about what Jesus did on the cross for us and she wanted to draw a picture of him to nail to the cross.  Today I received a gift in the mail from a dear friend with this love charm bracelet.  The timing was perfect as we reflect and remember the great sacrifice and love Christ poured out for us on the cross.  I am so undeserving and yet He loved me enough to bear my sin unto death so that I may have life.  

We also made some resurrection eggs today to help her better understand the meaning of Easter.  Here is a clip of Lily telling the story of God's love and redemption...

"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lasts down his life for his friends."  John 15:13
May you reflect in the power of the cross this Easter.
