Happy Easter!

These sweet babies can't wait for their sweet baby siblings to join in all the fun!
Kimmie and Quan's first Easter baskets...not filled with candy, but filled with some necessities for toddlers and a LOT of love! We can't wait to teach them about Jesus' love for them!

Guess what my favorite color is? Yep! Ol' Yeller! Can't wait to see our new babies with us in our Easter picture next year!


Kimmie and Quan, are yall ready for this bunch of silly-nilly's?

As we hunted eggs, I found this flower pot from last year that I had stuck behind some shrubs over the winter season. Last spring/summer I had beautiful petunias growing in this pot, but I dug them all up as they slowly withered and died. Much to my surprise I found PETUNIAS growing in this pot! How appropriate to find these resurrected petunias on the day we celebrate our Lord and Savior's resurrection! I found something much better than eggs on our hunt! I think this was my favorite part of the day. This and the unexpected Easter provision we received on our doorstep today. Thank you Lord...I stand in awe of your mighty works! I'm reminded of a song I love:
Thank you for the cross Lord.
Thank you for the price You paid.
Bearing all my sin and shame,
In love You came
And gave amazing grace.
Thank you for this love Lord.
Thank you for the nail pierced hands.
Wash me in Your cleansing flow
Now all I know
Your forgiveness and embrace!
Worthy is the Lamb
Seated on the throne!
Crown You now with many crowns
You reign victorious!
High and lifted up
Jesus Son of God
The Darling of Heaven crucified
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb ....

Many congratulations on your beautiful blessings. How wonderful that they have been playing together and will be a comfort to one another. God is so good!
