Happy Easter from our family to yours!

Just a few months ago, we celebrated the birth of a baby. And now, we celebrate that baby, grown to be a man, who died on the cross and rose three days later to demonstrate his great love for us.
From Luke 24:
1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” 8 Then they remembered his words.
In the middle of chocolate bunnies and Easter egg hunts, I would encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the amazing story of Easter. It doesn't get better than this!
