Happy Easter week!
Easter is coming at us full force and I’m trying to slow things down, get us all centered on what really means the most to us. Thankfully I have been asked to speak in church on Sunday so I’ve been forced (in the best way) to sit and ponder more than I normally do. There is so much to take in when thinking of Christ, his life, death and resurrection. Stealing some minutes of peace here and there in this busy family feels fantastic, but also kind of like I’m trying to get a drink from a fire hydrant. There’s just so much to absorb. Jesus is so great. His atonement so grand.
I think this video that my church put out pretty much sums up all that I want to say. Everything is possible because of Him.

This short video produced for the church pretty much sums up all that I want to say this Sunday in my talk. Because of him, everything. Everything ugly and hard and wrong in life can be made right. He gives meaning to all that we suffer. He makes our weaknesses strong. Through HIs light everything is illuminated. All can be comprehended.
We are given beauty for ashes.
