Easter Gratitude and Greetings

Happy Easter! On this day that we celebrate Christ's resurrection and eternal life, I am grateful for a Savior that died for us so that one day we can return to live with our Father in Heaven. I am grateful for such a merciful plan of salvation. I am grateful for his grace and love. He knows us and loves us individually.
I am reminded of the lyrics of one of my favorite bands - Blue October. On their newest album Approaching Normal, the lead singer wrote a beautiful song about his daughter; it's called Blue Does. He sings, "She's the answer to the prayer I hadn't found."
I can identify with his feelings of love toward his daughter. There's nothing like the birth of a child and developing that parental bond to bring us closer to our Heavenly Father. But, of equal importance is our relationship with our Savior. Christ is our ultimate answer. I know that as we look to him, we will find both our prayers and the answers. For that I am eternally grateful.
Here is one of my favorite Easter photos I took Sunday. I didn't take many photos because I was trying to keep track of the kids and Aeron was asleep during our Easter egg hunt. We spent the afternoon with Craig and Jeanne Clark and her family. She was gracious enough to cook dinner for us and we provided the food. It was a good trade-off. We went right from church to their house for dinner. It was nice not to worry about cooking.

Good Friends + Good Food = Good Times
