It is hard to imagine that a year ago on Easter I was announcing that we were expecting and this year I have an (almost) five month old!
When I sin and fall short of his glory, he is always there to redeem me. On the way to church yesterday I picked a fight with Alex. Then I got frustrated because I didn't realize the order of events at church (sunrise service, breakfast, then back home to shower and get ready, then another church service). I was upset because we left our food at home thinking we had time to return. I took this frustration out on Alex once again. Even a day like Easter where I should be hyper-aware of my sin and the gift of Jesus on the cross, I still fall. But this is the true message of Easter. That no matter when, where, and how bad, the price has already been paid. Our sin is forgiven. We are redeemed. Our Savior Lives! What a joyous message. And one that I clearly need each and every day!
