My Wishes...

My heart I give to you first,

My soul belongs to only You,

My mind may stray but to You it returns,

These obstacles that slow me down are small compared to You,

Your love and strength give me the power to break down the barriers,

The barriers that keep me from following You,

Your love and power are within me,

I lay all of me, heart, soul, and mind, at Your feet Lord,

Let Your love surround me and Your power give me strength.


Holy Spirit wash over me,

Guide each step I take,

Urge me to stay on this path,

The path to the future God has written for my life,

I want that story to come true,

He has written my fairytale,

And I am ecstatic to walk the roads He’s set in my way,

For my feet to follow,

His word is what will guide me:

Psalm 119:105

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”

"Tie"-Dyed Eggs

So this is pretty much the coolest way to dye Easter eggs!!! You can find directions to dye eggs like this online. Here is a link: http://www.marthastewart.com/article/silk-tie-easter-eggs

This one had a little surprise when it was unwrapped!
This was one of the neatest patterns that we had.
Even in black and white the eggs are stunning.
This first four that we unwrapped.
These three were my favorite colored eggs.
This is definitely my favorite ways to dye eggs. Each one comes out different and they are all really neat. The patterns and the colors are awesome!

Today was Good Friday. But what is Good Friday? What is it's significance? One answer...excuse me...one truth. Today, Good Friday, is the day that Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior died for each and everyone of us. He died so that we might be forgiven of our wicked ways...so that we might know the almighty father in heaven. Jesus paid the ultimate price for you...for me...for your neighbor...for that weird kid a few blocks down. He did that so we might know the most amazing love that could ever be known. So Good Friday...definitely good and oh so very important. The day to honor Christ's sacrifice for us. Thank you!
(Luke 23:34-49)

Easter, which is this Sunday, is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The day that our Lord, who died for us, rose from the grave. So, not only do we now have the ability to know God, but can also now know Jesus Christ, the son of God who died for our sins.
(Luke 24:1-12)

A beautiful weekend to celebrate ahead!

Luke 23:34 "Forgive them Father for they know not what they do."
