on my heart: easter

on my heart today is the death of my Savior. 
I'm so glad I know His death is not the end of the story. 
Can you imagine being one of His followers who painstakingly watched Him die,
who watched the world turn an eerie black in midday,
who watched as He was put in a tomb....seemingly to never be seen or heard from again?!

oh my.
on my heart today is the resurrection of my Savior.  I'm so glad I know the next chapter.  The raising from the dead part. 
It's powerful, miraculous,
holds great meaning for our everyday lives...and for all of eternity.
so how.
how do I help my kiddos grasp what is on my heart?

how do I pass on the love of Jesus in such a way that they want to know Him more
and never stop.
on my heart today is the passion to do the only things I can as their mom:
pray continually for their hearts
share with them what Jesus means to me
model for them someone who loves Jesus with her whole heart
....or at least more of it everyday

a celebration of Jesus and how love kept Him on the cross--for us
a celebration of Jesus and how death could not hold Him
a celebration of Jesus and how faith in Him is everything.  all we need.

He is Risen!  He is Risen indeed!
