Finally

I've been a little lazy with the upkeep of my blog, but I've finally updated my side bar. I had some old links up there (come to think of it, I might still need to change one). And I'm not at home, so I'm afraid I might be leaving out some really important link from my bookmarks. But I'll check again when I get a chance. So check out some of the newer additions (there's only a couple right now) if you feel browsing some new blogs....assuming of course, that you're not already reading all the ones I'm reading. :)

AND Happy Easter to you all. Honestly, I think Easter is my favorite holiday of all. I could do without all the pastel bunnies and chicks and sugar highs, though. My kids don't really even know that some families have the Easter Bunny come to their house. I don't think Zachary has ever had an Easter basket from us. I think Stephen had one for his first Easter and not since. But I honestly love Easter and the renewal I feel because of it. And I love that we get to spend time with family without the pressure of gifts. So Happy Easter. I hope you enjoy the pastel bunnies and chicks and sugar highs, if you like those kinds of things. But most of all I hope you are reminded of God's love for you. Because, really, that's what it's all about.

It's one of my favorites too. We do put out Easter baskets, but I've never mentioned the bunny. G asked me tonight if the treats were from me and I said Of course! Do you really think a big rabbit comes hopping in our house and gives you candy?

She's getting another webkinz. Any excuse to feed the addiction, right? And you know how I do love the sugar high. But you're right, that's not the point.

And I love so much that no matter how shallow and silly and webkinz-loving, creme egg-eating I am, God loves me enough to die for me. That is the best.

Love you.

I love this holiday, also. I hadn't thought about it, but it is a relief to not have to do gifts. We all get one amazing gift. Happy Easter!
