As they entered the tomb, they saw a man in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. "Don't be alarmed," he said... "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene who was crucified... He is risen! He is not here. Hallelujah! He is risen!" Matthew 16:5-7
Easter is one of my very favorite times of the year! How incredible that we have a Saviour who died on the cross for our sins, then rose again on the third day - He is the Living God! I was especially excited about this Easter as it is the first one that Ben and I got to celebrate with sweet Reid. My favorite part of the entire day was while I was getting ready to leave for church that morning... Ben was hanging out with Reid upstairs, and I had left his baby monitor on in our room... I got to hear my amazing huband explain the meaning of Easter to our sweet baby boy! Melted my heart!!! Not that Reid understands, but still such a special moment I will forever treasure! =)
We had a wonderful, busy, fun-filled day with family and friends! Church with the Keystoners on Sunday morning (51 saved and 21 baptized!!!)... Lunch with Ben's family... early dinner with my family... and then finally home to bed. We had one tired little boy! Here's a few pics from the day...
Reid and I before church on Sunday morning:
Reid all dressed up in his Easter duds...what a handsome little man!
Reid with one of the baskets the Easter bunny brought... (He was spoiled with a whole new summer wardrobe and some fun toys!)
As you can see, his favorite thing was his new hat for the pool this summer (pictured with Aunt Neely):
We hope that you and your family enjoyed a wonderful weekend celebrating our Risen Lord as well!
