It means so much to me
that Jesus rose
that He is alive with us in the baby snuggles and
the new crocuses
and the mocha cupcakes.
We had a lovely Easter, and I feel so blessed
but it was the next morning
when I woke to the knowledge that He was knocking
and calling me to surrender to Him
He is good
to call me out of myself
and into trust.
More on that next time.
My goals for April as as follows,
in case you want to join me:
- Scripture – 1 & 2 Peter
- Focus – Random acts of kindness, using this idea list as inspiration
- Abstinence – Disrespecting my family in private behind their backs,
thanks to the wise recommendations of my friend Rachel
who didn’t know I needed this, but is a shrewd guesser
to be sure.
I would have said that private disrespect is a “small” problem for me
but a couple of days into the experiment,
I’m thinking it’s considerably larger than I thought.
I am giving up
trash talking under my breath,
and cycling through scornful thoughts.
Just in case I do any of those
Okay, I do.
And I’m going to bring them to Christ.
