Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I wish you and your family a blessed and relaxing Easter weekend!  My girls are in a Easter play at church and my 6 y.o. has a little speech and part of it goes like this

Easter is really for Jesus
who died and then rose from the dead.
We must always remember the love Jesus showed
and all of the things that He said.

So, remember this Easter when you go to church,
and this message you tell everyone.
That Easter is ALL about JESUS
and the bunny and treats are just fun!

Let's celebrate the real reason for Easter!!

Hugs and blessings,
