“Even when I don’t see it You’re working...”
Good morning! It’s barely 7 AM- and the sun is just beginning to rise. I had this post on my list of things to do today. However, I find that I write better in the moment. As we prepare to celebrate Easter this Sunday- I am reminded that the Lord is always present with us- even when we don’t feel it, or see it. That’s faith right? The tomb was empty - Jesus is Risen. Last week- several people in my neighborhood and areas surrounding were posting pictures of the rainbow that came after the storm. I ran outside to take a look- and I couldn’t see it! No rainbow here. I’ll tell you what I did see, better yet- I’ll show you-
I saw the fresh new blooms on a tree right beside our deck, and the sun setting beautifully over the water- meanwhile noticing everyone else posting the rainbow after the storm. Y’all- we are in this season together, it does not look the same for all of us. And still, we are not alone. Enjoy the day, embrace it- listen to some music and just let it help calm you. My favorite oil right now is peace and calming. Constant meditation on the peace that I am so confident, that God wants us to have during this time.
Easter Weekend Plans
We are going to keep it simple! I am going to boil some eggs this morning to paint and decorate with Matt & Liam. If I don’t get out to the store, I will hide those in the yard for him to find on Saturday. On Sunday- we will watch church online, and give Liam his Easter basket that I am filling with things we already have here at home. Chocolate, undies- because I need to get him excited about using the potty, Lavender oil, and a bear that will aid with aromatherapy while he sleeps. I’m sure I’ll find some other goodies too!
Of course there will be FaceTime calls with family/ loved ones- and this mama will submit Chapter 2 of my dissertation.
I also have the Bible App for Kids on my phone that has a fun story called “A Happy Sunday” about the empty tomb- and some activities that I will do with Liam if I can get him to sit still long enough!!
Definitely check it out!
Have a wonderful weekend, and a blessed Easter! Remember , you are stronger than you think!
