He Is Risen! And because He is risen we have hope and a future. We have eternal life with no sickness, tears and pain and we are with HIM forever. We rejoice all the more this year and long for life with our Saviour.
Coming off a really bad week, we are tired and feel struck down. But we know that we are not destroyed. God is our help and our strength. It has been a joy, and such a source of encouragement to see HIM shine through our little five year old. Brian has been through a lot this week and he is still smiling. He is amazing. You can see from the picture I took below that his port has five marks from Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs and Fri chemo pricks. Yet right below that is a picture of sweet Brian being goofy and wanting me to take silly pictures of him.
Brian is excited for Easter but not for candy and chocolate. He is most excited about going through our Resurrection Eggs as a family tonight. He wants to be the one to tell the story of Jesus rising from the dead. He loves opening the last egg and screaming "It's empty! Just like the tomb was empty b/c Jesus rose from the dead!!"
He Is Risen!
