Happy Easter

Easter weekend was amazing. It was really great to remember the true meaning of Easter and that the only reason we are here on this earth is because Jesus died on the cross and rose from the tomb for our sins. The church service this weekend was so awesome and touched so many lives. God is doing some huge things in Lubbock and it's so cool to see all the people who are committing their lives to Christ. I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing, growing church. This weekend there were a total of 4450 people attending the 5 services and 125 people made first time commitments to Christ. WOW! Chris led an amazing service. It was such a unique service with a rapper, UFC style fighter, and a great message about how Jesus never "tapped out" and how he is an Ultimate Fighter.

We went to the Saturday night service and took a ton of friends and family with us. We were super excited to share this experience with our family. Easter Sunday I volunteered for 2 services to teach 2 and 3 year olds. They were super sweet and a lot of fun.

We went to my mom's house for Easter lunch and she still had us a little Easter egg hunt. We are probably too old for that by now, but you gotta love tradition. It was the most beautiful day so we spent a lot of time outdoors. We went out to the lake to spend the evening and have dinner with Joe's family. We rode around on the scooters and hung out on the porch. What a perfect Easter with my love. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Thank you Jesus for dying for our sins and raising from the tomb. Please help me to be an example of the christian woman you want me to be.
