Jesus loves me, this I know

Tomorrow is Easter. Jax's FIRST Easter and I couldn't be more excited! This weekend (Good Friday- Easter Sunday) is such a great time to reflect on how much Jesus loves us. He DIED for us. He gave his life to pay for our sins so that we could be forgiven. Talk about some serious love. There are only a small handful of people that I know would die for me and I for them. Yet Jesus did it for EVERYONE. Every single human being who has ever walked this beautiful Earth. He loves us so much that we can't even really grasp it.

I hope that I can demonstrate that love to Jax. I want him to know, to feel how much I love him... but more than that, I want him to know and feel how much Jesus loves him. I pray that he grows up to be a godly man who serves our amazing Creator with everything that he has. I pray that he will someday meet a woman who is equally in love with her Creator. I pray that Jax will be a light into the darkness surrounding him. I pray that he will show Jesus' love to every person he meets.

Although we have a some things to get done tomorrow (to get ready for NYC on Monday!), we will be going to church in the morning (Duh!). I can't wait to hold my sweet boy and worship my Jesus at the same time. I know that it's going to be a day filled with Jesus' love, with fellowship, with good food and with cute outfits ;)

Happy Easter everyone. I pray that Jesus' love pours over you tomorrow as you reflect on all He has done for us!!

  1. okay you totally made me cry. I am so proud to see that you are walking with the Lord. I also couldn't be more pleased with you as a mother. It is a hard job, but the most rewarding. There is no higher calling than to be a mother and wife. I pray that the Lord continues to give you a desire for himself and that you can reflect that to your sweet baby boy. Have a great Easter.
