Thoughtful Tuesday - what Easter means to me

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.

What does Easter mean to you?



  1. My family isn't very religious so it means just family-togetherness... a good excuse to have everyone in the same room! happy easter to you

  2. I LOVE this! Thank you so much for always sharing your faith! You are ok if others dont agree with you! I am trying to be more bold about my faith as well!
    Every time It gets close to Easter I shake my head, Its hard for me to comprehend that He loved me that much! Yet He did and does!

    We serve a Risen Jesus! Praise the Lord!

  5. Sierra! It was wonderful to see your beautiful comment on my blog! It's been so long! I haven't blogged in quite a while and don't have as much time to read and visit as I used to. That said, I couldn't let Easter go by without posting something and especially expressing my gratitude to God for His gift to us. There really are no words to describe the feeling because Easter of all holidays is by far the most important to me. He loves us so much He died for us and He IS Risen!!! And I GET to have a relationship with Him!!!
    May His joy continue to overflow in you, sweet sister in Christ. You are beautiful! xo
