Jesus Has Risen

This morning we awoke to a foggy quiet day. We enjoyed a few moments together as we readied ourselves for church. I thought of the women headed to the tomb that morning (Matthew 28). Was it quiet and peaceful? At dawn I imagine that it was. Their hearts would have still felt heavy with grief, their faces would've been downcast.

How it all changed in moments! They were told He was risen and they went away filled with joy (Matthew 28: 8).

Today was joyful. My beautiful babies put on their lovely new clothes and we went to church as a family. We spent our morning worshiping the one who lives!

Afterwards we came home and lunched with extended family. Our afternoon was leisurely as we ate and played games.

This evening the 4 of us enjoyed the finale of The Bible series. Well the 4 of us enjoyed some of it together but we did send the kids out for the majority of the crucifixion scene. While they have handled the series well we felt that those scenes were too graphic for them.

Again I felt like this episode was wonderful. There were several scenes that sent Hubby to the Word to compare what it actually says vs what was seen. However this is still an amazing evangelism tool. I pray it leads believers and nonbelievers to delve into the world. I pray it changes hearts and minds. 

I can't think of any better way to have celebrated our Lord than we did today. We worshiped Him, we enjoyed the laughter and love of family, and we spent time reflecting on Him and His sacrifice through The Bible series and reading the Word.

You can see my thoughts on The Bible installment 12, 3, and 4.

All opinions are my own. I received no compensation for this post.
