To all Girls with Coupons readers, I wanted to let you know that there are no coupon inserts today, Easter Sunday.
As many of you, I will be spending time with my family.
Even though we color Easter eggs, enjoy candy and the fun with the little ones, the day means more than that to us.
Today is the day Jesus rose from the dead, after dying a brutal death. It was his destiny. He knew it would happen, he knew what was to come, yet he suffered and died without ever trying to get out of it. However, three days later he rose again. This was God’s plan so that one day when I am gone from this world, I can have an ever lasting life in heaven. That is why we celebrate.
John 3:16 reminds us that God loved us so much he gave his only son for us, so that anyone that believed in him would have everlasting life.
As a mother, I know I could never have the kind of love that I would sacrifice one of my children for anyone.
That kind of love is unimaginable….immeasurable. There are no words for that kind of love.
So today as we celebrate, let us remember why we celebrate it in the first place.
With a grateful and humble heart, I thank God for his unimaginable and immeasurable love for me.
And for Jesus who lived it, showed it, knew it and gave his life for me…little imperfect me.
~Greater love has no one than the one who is willing to lay down his life for a friend~
Wishing you a Blessed and Happy Easter
