I am just too excited to share the resurrection message. Easter is my favorite Holiday. The church scene right now is solemn, as Lent is a season of remembering Christ's sacrifice for us, but I am like a kid in a candy shop, because I know the rest of the story! I want to celebrate it and shout it from the rooftops, so Lent makes me antsy.
You see, although I was born to a church going family, I did not understand or comprehend the gift of eternal life or that only through Him could I be saved. I made so many mistakes, and committed some horrible sins. I felt alone and condemned because of my behavior. Praise the Lord, he didn't give up on me.
I still make mistakes, but now I try to live as God wants me. I love him first, and everything falls into place. When I screw up, I run to Him with my confession and He forgives me. I am a new creation!!
Be forewarned, you will probably get Easter images for the remainder of the season as I cannot control my amazement and delight. Yes, I do mourn that Christ had to die for my sins, but the fact that He loves me just turns me into an amazed child.
