I usually plant bulbs every fall so that I will have tulips blooming in the springtime to remind me of Christ, to honor our son Luke, and to celebrate the new life that the Easter holiday embodies.
We moved just before fall and with the new place and all our other issues at the time I wasn't able to plant any tulips at our most recent residence. Also, we moved out before they would have bloomed, yet I still regret not doing it.
I was able to at least purchase some lovely tulips to have on display for Easter.
Easter was simple. We didn't do anything to extravagant to celebrate.
We attended church, like usual, and enjoyed the special musical numbers that were prepared for the day.
We let Jeremy pick up some Easter eggs that we scattered in the park by our house and enjoyed the beautiful spring weather.
We invited another couple over who also just relocated here for work to join us for dinner. I guess being a foodie the best way I knew to celebrate was to cook lots of yummy food --a baked ham with a homemade glaze, cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, and carrot cake all from scratch. (I forgot to take pictures before we ate it all up!)
All the while I was simply feeling in my heart a closeness to my savior, Jesus Christ. A gratitude for His life, His love, and His gift of the resurrection that is promised to all. I am so grateful to know that because of Him I can be reunited with my son Luke and eventually all of my family members after we live our mortal lives.
I know that my Redeember Lives, and for Him I am Grateful
