Reflecting on the season which holds all the truths of the gospel, I was humbled as the Lord reminded me that He died for our sins and life in eternity. I was reminded that this world is temporary.
This was brought home when I visited my grandmother, who is 98, and will see the Lord soon. We were able to visit a little through her medicine and pain she is suffering in this closing act of her life. My reassurance is her wonderful relationship with the Lord, and the comfort that she will see Him soon. She is looking to eternity.
Benjamin came into a new understanding of the Gospel this season, partly due to our daily reading of the Word and part from the Passover Experience we visited. If you are one who serves in Easter Programs my I say thank-you. If you ever wondered if others are affected by your efforts, may I be one to say YES.
As we gathered early for our family celebration I enjoyed being creative with our food for the Saturday brunch. I made bread cones and then stuffed them with chicken salad with dill coming from the top to make them look like a carrot. World Market helped with rabbit, eggs and spring pasta for our pasta dish. I also set up a Soda bar, which was so much fun. Salad on a stick gave a salad a new twist. Fruit topped off the brunch. Spring...a season of bright colors.
Of course there were also pictures of the grandsons.
We had fun getting to know our son's girlfriend and the fact that she took violin lessons as a child.
Our daughter had pregnancy pictures..twins are doing great!! Still looking toward June.
Our oldest son and wife will be expecting their third in September. My precious Joshua also celebrated his 4th birthday last week. What a miracle these last two years have been. Joshua came to live with them 2 years this March.
A season of watching the circle of life and Praising God that He holds it all in His hands.
Rejoice, the Lord who has redeemed you is worthy of your love and worship.
