Easter is by far my favorite Holiday. I love everything about Easter. It is in spring and all the grass and flowers are starting to appear. New life is in the air. Renewal. Refreshing. And most of all, Easter is a time to reflect and celebrate what our Lord and Saviour Jesus did for us. He removed the veil by becoming an innocent sacrafice. He was the lamb that was slain for our sins, chastized for our transgressions, by His stripes we are Healed, and above all, now we are made spotless and blameless to hte Father. We can have a relationship with God our Father. That is what God wants more than anything. Communion and friendship with each of us:
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For you have not reiceived the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry Abba Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the Children of God: And if children, then heirs: heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ: in so that we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. Romans 8:14-17
How Awesome is that??? We are adopted by God as his children. We are the Heirs of God! We have inherited from God. This makes me think of my adopted children and how they are mine through and through and they have inherited everything that I have just as my bio children have. How much more have we inherieted from God our Father that we do not even realize??? I hope this post will encouage you this Easter to think about your relationship with God theFather and His Son Jesus, and all that you have inherited as a Child of God,

The rest of our family
In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!
