I’m off this week from work because this is the public school system’s Easter/Passover/Spring break. My birthday yesterday just happened to fall during the break. I had a great birthday complete with lunch out with my girls and my mom, gifts, a ton of Facebook wishes and then dinner out followed by the most delicious chocolate mousse cake from the bakery around the corner.
God has been so good it’s hard to not sing His praise and worship Him at any given time. In fact I do worship while driving by singing worship songs the whole time I’m in the car. I love listening to contemporary Christian radio while driving. I’ve misplaced my favorite Casting Crown’s CD and that’s a bummer, I’m sure it will turn up someday. I was thinking the other day about all Christ went through on that cross for us. It’s hard to stomach the suffering He endured as part of God’s plan to reconcile man to Himself. He lived a sinless life, suffered as a criminal, died and rose to life 3 days later. I love hearing and telling of The Gospel. God’s Love for us is so unimaginable and so hard to comprehend. I remember when I first accepted Jesus as my Savior as an adult. I did not feel worthy of such love. And it took a long time to accept that Jesus loves me even though I’m a sinner.
Today Samantha and I are having a movie afternoon. There aren’t any movies in the theater we want to see so we are going to watch Star Wars here at home complete with popcorn and candy. Samantha has never seen the movie and I haven’t watched it since 1977 so we will definitely have a good time.
