I love Easter for so many reasons, but the biggest reason is I am so thankful to my heavenly Father who died on the cross for me. Easter gives me the chance to pause, and truly be thankful for God's blessings. He's blessed me with so much and every time I think of Jesus dying on the tree for me and then rising from the dead 3 days later, I am filled with this incredible joy. Not joy over His pain, but joy that I will be with Him and my heavenly Father one day in heaven because Jesus made this possible. I yearn for that moment and I can't wait to embrace my Father God at the pearly gates one day. I will use this week to reflect on God's goodness and mercy, because He is a very merciful and loving God!
This is what Easter means to me. I also love that I am able to spend Easter with my mom and dad this year, since I am usually in sunny CA. Even though I'll be missing my BK, it's nice spending Easter in my home town. I plan on going to a Easter special at the church I grew up with sometime this weekend.
