The good news! Jesus Christ conquered death and we have the hope of our own resurrection! I don't remember if I've said here, but we changed churches in the last year, so we have a different pastor than in my previous "my pastor said" comments. This Sunday, part of our pastors sermon was why we can believe that Jesus really died on the cross and came back to life in bodily form...and one of those reasons is that his followers risked their lives on a daily basis to tell others about Jesus. If Jesus resurrection was a hoax, they would not have risked being killed themselves to share about Jesus.
Resurrection Sunday is probably my favorite holiday...it's close with Christmas though, because if not for Christ's birth, then there would be no Resurrection.
This is our family pic for this year's holiday:
Ellie said I was "too excited" this year. Well, I was excited because I finally got our matching skirts made (I was going to make them last year). When I was growing up, my Mom made us matching dresses many years for Easter (Resurrection Sunday) and Christmas, and my little sister, too. This is the first year that I have made Ellie and I matching anything. She had picked out sandals to wear, but the day turned out too cold, so we decided to wear leggings... then I got the idea to wear our cowboy boots and jean jackets (which is a whole other story... for another post).
Anyway, I hope you all had a great holiday with your family and friends!
