easter blessings

Happy, happy Easter, everyone! I just put the finishing touches on Jeff's Easter basket and {accidentally} ate half of his Starburst jellybeans. I hate it when that happens. This is quite possibly my favorite holiday. For all things bright+ springy, pastel+lovely, sweet+ jelly, fresh+ egg-shaped. More than that, I love this holiday for it's message of living hope.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade--kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. {1Peter 1:3}

I've been enjoying looking through the archives of your blog after finding you this evening. I don't even remember how I ended up here, but what a treat! Lots of eye-candy, for sure!...Am delighted to see this passage of the Gospel message. Made me smile. Thanks.
