I totally forgot my camera today….boo!! I’m glad all my sisters had their cameras so I can steal their pictures when they post them! (And for ONCE I didn’t have to be the camera stalker in the family!)
Fortunately I had my phone & was able to capture a
few shots photo shoot!!
Today was ABSOLUTELY perfect here in Oakwood/Braselton, Georgia!! We had a FABULOUS church service (today was an aha! moment for my girls in SS about seeing the prophecies/promises of the Old Testament being fulfilled in the New Testament! That was a blessing!) and then headed to Mama & Daddy’s. We had a big cookout full of delicious food, a GREAT Easter egg hunt (Big Jon commentated and had me CRACKING up the whole time!), and dyed Easter eggs. We also celebrated two birthdays- my niece, Chloe, and my nephew, Zachery.
(This is mine & Jonathan’s dog…..Mac. His official name is “Mac Daddy the Money Maker Butler,” but everybody in the fam calls him Big Mac. Jonathan bought him for me for my birthday several years ago to protect me while I run. Turns out he’s incredibly strong and way too much to handle on a leash….and also turns out him & my dad are BFF….so he’s still at my parents’ house. Daddy wouldn’t let his little buddy go!)
It was SUCH a fun day!!
We headed home for a Sunday afternoon nap, a great walk through the neighborhood (one of my favorite times…..we always talk about our dreams & plans on our walks), and a yummy salmon dinner.
I LOVE my stud of a husband!!
I am SO thankful for Easter….the Resurrection…and for what today means to me as a Christ follower.
“For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.” –Romans 6:9-10
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” John 11:25-26
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.” –Matthew 27:50-53
