This coming Sunday is Easter. They day that we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Take a moment to watch this video.
Because of Him I have the power to be forgiven. And to forgive. I can start all over again.
Some days it feels like I am taking the same step over and over and over again. Trying to learn what I need to learn from that repetition. I am so thankful for the chance I have to repeat things to learn and grow.
Because of Him I have peace. I have knowledge that this life is not all there is. That I will go on. That I will be able to see those loved ones who have died. I will be able to feel their arms wrapped around me and see their smiles, hear their laughter.
Because of Him I can be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend.
His love makes me want to improve and be better.
And He lives.
