Happy Easter to those who celebrate this holiday! I hope that you have had a joyous, awesome-filled day.
And, if you don't celebrate Easter, I hope that you had a beautiful Spring Sunday.
See y'all tomorrow!
Today, you have risen! Today, we are humbled and amazed at what You did so very long ago. And today, we celebrate and rejoice in You and in Your gift.
Lord, we confess that we often forget Your gift. We often forget Your mercy and forget that You sent Christ after us. We confess that we get caught up in the intricacies of life and forget Your love.
But, Father, we ask that You use this holy day to remind us. To remind us of Your love, and Your kindness, and Your mercy, and Your gentleness. And we ask, Lord, that You will be near those who don't feel celebratory today. We realize that holidays are not always joyous for a thousand reasons, yet we know You are here.
God, we can't thank you enough for Your life. We can't find the words to express Your awesome-ness. But, Lord, we know You hear us when we pray.
