I hope you all had a beautiful Easter Sunday. I am so grateful today for my Savior and His willingness to give His life for us so that we may return to Him. It is because of His great sacrifice that I will be able to see my daughter again. What an amazing gift. I feel so unworthy of such a gift. As I think back on my life and all the things that I have done that caused him so much pain, it breaks my heart. He died for my selfish sins! What a humbling realization.
I will be eternally grateful for Christ, and for this day and what it stands for. I can only pray that I can continue to strive to be more like Him in my thoughts and my actions and that I might be able to help others to come to that realization as well. A hymn that was sung today at my church meetings, which happens to be one of my favorites, says it all...
I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,
Confused at the grace that so fully He proffers me.
I tremble to know that for me He was crucified,
That for me, a sinner, He suffered, He bled and died.
Oh it is wonderful, that He should care for me,
Enough to die for me.
Oh it is wonderful, wonderful to me.
I pray that you were all able to ponder this wonderful gift that we have been given on this special day. I know that Easter will from now on have a deeper meaning to me than it ever has before. So blessed is the day that I see my Savior again, and of course my beautiful little girl.
