Easter is coming - a few ramblings

Easter is just a few days away. It is a season that is precious to us believers. Sadly, it can be hugely commercialized (all those Easter bunnies laying eggs .....), and it needs to be celebrated in a God-glorifying way. I love what Nancy Wilson said over on her blog about celebrating it with traditions, traditions that are both solemn as we recognize the enormity of what Christ did, and joyfully childlike as we celebrate His victory and our freedom.

I have a wonderful husband. I really do.
We were driving home from church the other day and I mentioned how "the baby" must really be wanting some Peeps and a chocolate bunny .....
He bought me some.
They're only $1 at Walmart, but it made me feel so very loved and cherished. Isn't he just wonderful?
I love him.

I've posted something on the market blog again (yes, it gets updated really randomly - sorry about that). If you are interested in buying a few of the new spring pretties, you can find them here.

And we having wonderful spring weather!!! It's finally gotten into the 70s here, and I'm loving it. :) Emma wore a pair of shorts today for the first time this year.

I've SO appreciated what she's said about holidays. For me, it's "easy" to approach Christian holidays with all seriousness, which is good, but I forget the great celebration it should be too. Now I'm completely ok with the fun and silly events because they are to make it a celebration! All the while, holding hands with the truth of why we're celebrating.

Peeps are gross, but kids seem to love them! :) Good point on the Holiday!


Check out Frame It Friday! over at Loving This Mom Stuff!
I'd love to see some of your child's artwork!

I grew up on 5-cup salad, too! Alas, tho, my family (husband and kids) don't like coconut! What?! "It's the texture," they say. "Feels like fingernails in your mouth." Ugh. Trying to ruin it for me (me - who LOVES Mounds bars and chocolate/coconut eggs). Silly people. But I was tasting it vicariously through your blog - and with a photo, too! Aaahhh. :-) (And what a nice husband you have - peeps and chocolate! I love peeps, too :-)
Blessings on your happy, growing family.
