Happy Easter, my little sweeties! What a fun day we had filled with candy, Easter baskets, songs and a wonderful message shared later in the day by my sweet girl about how Jesus makes us “clean” again (Thank you, Miss Dani!)
It is because of the sacrifice Jesus made by dying on the cross for us that we have reason to celebrate today. Always know that Easter is not just about the candy and eggs, but that it signifies a promise fulfilled and a love so strong that it was willing to go to any length to sacrifice for you.
Some people put much emphasis on telling others that they love them…a spouse, a friend, a child; but Easter reminds us that real love is more than just words. Real love requires action and sacrifice. Jesus dying on the cross is the perfect example of the ultimate sacrifice to display the ultimate love. I challenge you, my little ones who will one day grow into adults, to show the world your love not just in words alone, but also through your actions. The choices that you make and the sacrifices you endure will show the world (and yourself) where the intention of your heart lies. Love the ones who are the most difficult to love, reach out to those who need your help the most, sacrifice your time being of service to others. Volunteer your time, your energy and your heart. Do what you can to make the world a better and more loving place. By choosing to live a life of actionable love, you will get to know the Father’s love for you (and all of us) in ways you would never have known before.
I love you to the moon and back. Forever and always.
