New Birth

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead..."
- 1 Peter 1:3

Happy Easter, friends! He is Risen!

This Easter I have spent some time reflecting on the great sacrifice that we celebrate on this day, and I feel so blessed. I am so grateful for the hope that this season brings. It is a time of rebirth, forgiveness, hope and new life. What a beautiful thing.

I hope that you all are spending the day surrounded by those you love. As always on the holidays, we miss our families very much and our thoughts are in Florida with them. Our day here will include a sunrise church service, followed by a trip into the city for the Eater Bonnet Parade (whether or not that will include the dog like last year remains to be seen), followed by a delicious dinner of lasagna and cupcakes.

Happy Easter to all from the W. family!

Christ is Risen, indeed!
