Happy Good Friday and Easter!

A flashback of my sister and I on Easter in 1988. I love that Mama always payed so much attention to the details of our attire :). At least y'all know I come by it honestly! It's Good Friday and I am overcome with gratitude as I reflect on the truth that God sent his only Son to suffer and die a horrible and brutal death so that you and I may have eternal life through Him. Easter is such a sentimental time for me because it was on Easter Sunday (April 4, 1994) at the age of 8 years old, I accepted Christ as my personal Savior. I can remember the details so vividly and when I reflect back on that day my heart feels the exact same way. It starts pounding and I become emotional just thinking of the day and thanking God for giving me the opportunity to truly come to know him as a young child. I am so thankful that I was brought up in a Christian home and that my salvation was celebrated among loved ones. I pray that each one of you sweet friends will come to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior if you don't already. The Christian life isn't easy, but it's a life that lives forever. I hope that you have a very Happy Easter celebrating with loved ones and reflecting on the incredible sacrifice made on our behalves!! xoxo

  1. You and your sister are the cutest things! My sister and I always had Easter dresses similar to that.

    The Christian life isn't easy, but I have such peace about everything! There's no way I could walk this life alone and I'm so thankful that He is Risen!

    Happy Easter friend!

  7. so I just found your blog through Michaela's blog. I am so glad I did girl. You love pink, you love Christ, your gorgeous and your blog is quite attractive :). he he All the things I look for in another womans blog.

    I just read through your about me and a couple of other blogs. You are such a genuine and sweet girl. I have always wanted to visit the south and It is always refreshing to meet someone open-minded and beautiful inside and out from a place I know little about. Except what they teach in the books and that doesn't quite make me eager to pay a visit to "certain" areas of the south. lol Being african-american and all.

    But yes. I just wanted to say I am following and I pray the Lord blesses your marriage and your life in your obedience to the call He has you living in each and everyday girl.
