Well, it's the day after Easter, and many see this as a sort of recovery day from the busyness of Easter Sunday. After all, if your Easter was anything like mine, you spent the day celebrating Jesus, enjoying time with family, having a nice meal, and maybe even partaking in the festivities of an egg hunt! We had a beautiful, busy day, and I wouldn't have had it any other way.
Here's a photo of the beautiful Easter cross inside of my church yesterday, and me with B, and my mom.
B patiently waited to get home from church so we could look for Easter eggs...
...and find/tear through his Easter baskets!
And when all of the hoopla was over- I captured this moment- quiet, restful.
I know that Easter is a special day- not an everyday occurrence, but the busy, busy, busy feeling that goes along with it never seems to fade. I try so hard to slow down, and take it easy, but life just keeps flying by. Some nights I go to bed and think about how tired I am, and am exasperated after realizing that I get to do it all again tomorrow. Today, I woke up rejoicing that there is a tomorrow. We're not guaranteed anything in life, but because He lives, I will gladly face each day, thankful that I am able to get up, enjoy the day, and be with the ones I love. The resurrection story goes far beyond Easter Sunday, my friends.
May you find peace and hope in God's promises. He lives!
