First Day of the Week

In the last week, the roof started leaking, Wes was rear-ended, I had a flat tire, we worried over tornadoes, and more... I am thankful for the beginning of a new week (and to all our friends and family in the St. Louis area: We are so grateful for your safety).

love that bed head!

Although we don't celebrate Easter as a religious holiday, we honor Christ's resurrection every Sunday, taking the Lord's Supper on the first day of every week (Acts 20:7). We use the Bible as our guide for worship, and go by its examples and instructions. The Bible doesn't make reference to the early Christians celebrating Easter. We enjoy some of the secular traditions (like candy from the Easter Bunny), and try to keep our focus on Christ every single day. We do not make any one time of the year more commemorative than all the rest. He deserves all we've got EVERY day, and those clouds could open up any minute with the sound of trumpets! Enjoy your weekend, and celebrate what He has done for you ALL THE TIME.

I'll post something tomorrow after Levi's ENT appointment :)

Wonderful pictures and post! Jesus should be the reason for every season (or each and every day) of our lives! :)
