Easter Weekend, Part 2

At our house, we love Jesus. We love that He is alive today, interceding for believers at the right hand of the Father in Heaven. And, we love celebrating the Resurrection. We are all about the Resurrection. It gives us hope, forgiveness of sin, redemption of our very selves. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23). For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilt of breaking all of it. (James 2:10). That describes all five people living in this house. How could we ever stand before a righteous God knowing the reality of our sin? For the wages of sin is death, BUT the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23) Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes. The word of faith we are proclaiming: That is you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved . . . Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. (Romans 10:4, 8-10, 13). Could there be a better reason for a weekend of celebration? I don't think so!

Hey!  Where's the candy?

So many attempts at a family picture.

Eric's effort at making Marshall quit pretending to be asleep in every picture.

Me, my sister in law Stephanie, and our friend, Carmel

My really amazing mother-in-law, Robyn


My view during the Easter sermon

More family pictures. Oh wow.  Please take note of the way Jameson looks deep in thought.

Love these boys . . .
