Easter was a very special day for us because we were all together! EK woke the big girls up for Easter baskets and an inside egg hunt. I made sausage casserole and cinnamon rolls for breakfast and then everyone was off the get ready for church- which was awesome and then home for pictures and lunch. I had so much for getting some great shots of our family. Hope to get some great ones of Marcia and her family when she comes home this weekend.
Now as Scott and I raise our girls in Jesus' love, we are most thankful that S, A, & R have all made their professions of faith and we continue to encourage and talk to EK. A little funny story... this past week as we were preparing for Easter, EK and I were talking about why Jesus died on the cross for us. I was talking about if we believe that Jesus is God's Son and He died and was raised up so we could be forgiven, when we die we get to live with Him in heaven forever. EK stopped me right there and said, "I don't want to talk about that. It makes me sad." I asked her what she was sad about. She said, "I don't want to live in heaven. I want to live here with you and daddy." I picked her up, held her tight, and asked her if she believed Jesus loved her and died for her and she said YES! I let it go right there... she knows what is important and the other will come in her own time. I am so thankful that God gave us this precious girl to love and teach about His love for her. And... this time next year, we will have SJ home as well!!! :)
