Do Not Be Afraid

Here are some blessings on my mind to be grateful for this Easter and while on a little visit with my fam.

56. Christ, Risen Savior! The one who "was, and is, and is to come."

"So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.

Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me." - Matthew 8-10
57. Family trying new things,

58. Easter brunch,

59. Parents who have always loved you, an entertaining grandma who makes you laugh,

60. Skyping with the brother,

61. The waves of Lake Erie,

62. Fresh mercy and His love that never fails

All these gifts..they teach me that God is bigger than anything I put as a barrier between me and Him.

..."If fear keeps our lives small, does a life that receives all of God in this moment grow large too?" (p.149, 1000 Gifts, Ann Voskamp)
