Resurrection Sunday – the best day of the year.
“Why are you looking for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!” Luke 24: 5&6
So grateful for the empty tomb and the life it brings. Hallelujah! He is risen!
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. Luke 22:44
Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull. Here they crucified him… John 19:17,18
…Jesus said, It is finished. With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. 1 John 3:16
While wandering the garden this morning, I spotted the loveliest yellowy-orange fungi growing out of an old tree stump. And I was reminded, as we draw near to Easter, of the miracle of new life coming out of old; of vibrant life from death.
And I am so very, very grateful for the new life that Easter brings to all who simply look and see.
I’m currently reading Counter Culture by David Platt. It’s fantastic. It’s one of those books that I want to underline or highlight every sentence of. And I am saying “Listen to this…” to my husband so much that he won’t need to read the book for himself once I’ve finished it 🙂
Grateful for Godly people who share their divine wisdom.
Today was a rare Saturday where we were both home so, of course, that meant an extensive list of household jobs was written.
I love the feeling at the end of a big Saturday when you’ve managed to cross nearly everything off. And you are so, so tired but it’s that satisfied kind of tired that comes from physical work and accomplishment.
I’m so grateful for a day like today when we get to enjoy each other’s company, working alongside one another towards a common goal.
Oh and I’m grateful for finally having green grass to mow!
Today, after receiving an update on one of our Destiny Rescue sponsor children, I am grateful for many things.
Ps. Now that Uni has started, I probably won’t always have the time each day to put up a blog post with my grateful photo. I’ll do some catch up ones when I get time though and try not to get too behind 🙂
Before anyone gets carried away, I don’t play the piano. The only thing I play that music comes out of is my iPod 🙂
But I love music. I almost literally have music playing ALL the time. I can’t cook without it, work without it, write without it, play table tennis without it, drive without it (you get the idea).
I love it. I love nearly every style (not fussed on screamer bands for example) and have no shame in singing and dancing enthusiastically no matter where I am or who’s around.
I’m so grateful for those who make music. They are truly giving something incredible and I don’t know what I’d do without their gifts.
