Easter eggs, fluffy baby chicks and the Easter bunny.


Our life group had an easter egg hunt and party last week. It was a lot of fun, and the kids loved it. The excitement as they dashed around picking up eggs was enough to make you laugh.. it was so cute.

And the hunt begins!

After all the eggs were picked up and deposited in their darling little baskets, they took turns holding the cutest little chicks.


The guys took a liking to the chicks too. :)

Then the discovering of treasures inside of the eggs; chocolate, candy, bracelets and other little delights.


And last but not least.. the Easter bunny!


I think Baby wanted to eat the bunny…

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
And then that darkest of nights, and the fiend we call DEATH were powerless.
And my Beloved…
AROSE.

new beginnings

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.
– Seneca

don’t be sad when things come to an end. when one door is shut. for there is always a new beginning, always another door.

life bursting forth.


one of the best things about spring is how the greens push their way out of the dirt and burst into vibrant life. i look forward to it every year and this year was no exception. so when i saw that it was happening, i was so excited to create some photos of it.. and it just so happened that the pink blossoms are starting to fall off the tree right above. beautiful.

damp earth and new life.. color and sunshine.. spring is a beautiful thing. here’s the catch.. it’s still winter! i think north carolina has it’s seasons mixed up. but i’ll just enjoy it as it comes. yesterday i sat out by the pool for awhile drinking passion iced tea and feeling the sunshine and it made me very excited about when i can splash into the water! i felt the water and almost hollered, it’s still freezing. maybe not just yet… =}

“..he dawns on them like the morning light, like the sun shining forth on a cloudless morning, like rain that makes grass to sprout from the earth.” 2 Samuel 23:4

maybe that’s one reason we love spring so much. because it’s somewhere we can see and feel traces of God. dawning upon us like light.. refreshing us like the rain. making us beautiful.
soak it up. enjoy every flower. feel the sun on your face. listen to the rain. and be in love with the one who is making it all beautiful..

spring.


Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. Song of Solomon 2:12

Awake, thou wintry earth –
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, An Easter Hymn

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. ~Virgil A. Kraft
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. ~Anne Bradstreet

Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. Luke 12:27

Every spring is the only spring – a perpetual astonishment. ~Ellis Peters

it is astonishment. especially when it arrives in february. every spring takes my breath away.. and i pray it always will. so today, step outside, smell the flowers, feel the spring air, listen to the birds sing, feel your heartbeat, and be thankful that you are alive.

Bethy’s birthday


Bethy with her new camera – a handful of us combined and got her a Rebel T1i for her birthday. :)

“And then the sloth heard a scratch, scratch, scratch, and what do you think he saw?”
“The end of this lame story?”
“Nooo. He saw a vicious, bloodthirsty MONSTER!!!”
“Monsters are proved manifestations of subconscious fear.”
*sighs* “You are so much fun to take on a camping trip. Anywhoo..”
