because. He Lives.

had a great time with my family on Sunday. all we have really is because of Christ and all He’s done. It is HIS life that has given us LIFE… and in abundance!! amen.


glad my Grams & Gramps were able to come down. always good to be w/ them.


I can see we’ll have our work cut out for us in the years to come with Emma – when asked on Sunday morning who died and came back to life for us, she answered excitedly, “da Easter bunny!”

love this little jumper… Katie made it for her last year. too big then. but now a perfect fit. (thanks emily for teaching her. I sure couldn’t!)


liked these quotes I read this week~

“We want to avoid suffering, death, sin, ashes. But we live in a world crushed and broken and torn. A world God Himself visited to redeem. We receive His poured out life, and being allowed the high privilege of suffering with Him, may then pour ourselves out for others.” ~ E. Elliot

“The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lies work. discipline. sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice. ”


Because He Lives I can face tomorrow.

Because He Lives all fear is gone.

Because I know He holds the future.

And life is worth the living,

Just Because He Lives.
