Eme and Abby were up looking for eggs at 5:30 am! I made them "wait" (they couldn't actually pick up the eggs they found), until Liv got up at 7. They loved their baskets, and were excited that the Easter bunny gave them each their own pocket sized Bible. "What's wrong with this thing? Why are some of the words in red?" =] They couldn't figure out why there was a card from Mom and Daddy in their baskets from the Easter bunny either! (Oops- didn't think that one through) They sang with the kids at church. Eme recited a poem. My dad acted out the part of Barabbas "in lieu" of a sermon. He dressed the part - long gray wig and everything. Wish I'd gotten a picture. Jesus took Barabbas' place on the cross - Barabbas was the one who deserved to die like that, not Jesus. Jesus took our place on that cross also. Thank you, Jesus.

Easter baskets (Yes, I know it is a snowman tablecloth- We can't find a Spring tablecloth long enough for the table! =])

I'm trying to find the right balance in life. I'm attempting to be a great mom, wife, daughter, Christian, friend, teacher, and homemaker. Some days are better than others. I'm learning it's ok to not be perfect. I'm learning to be content in all circumstances. I'm learning to take better care of myself so I can take better care of my family. I'm learning to enjoy the little moments in life instead of always focusing on what's ahead. I'm learning to embrace the now.
