Life's Little Blessings~ Day One

"The Bible is one of the greatest blessings bestowed by God on the children of men.  It has God for it's author, salvation for it's end and truth without any mixture for it's matter.  It is all pure."
~John Locke

"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."
~C.S. Lewis

I am pairing up with my bestie, Megan, for a week of posts about the blessings in our lives.  There are so many more than 7, but we will start here.  What better day to start than on the celebration day of our risen Savior? 

On this Easter day, I would like to begin by saying that I am so blessed and fortunate to have grown up in church.  I got very involved in my youth group and I cherish those memories and the wonderful things that I learned. 

I love The Lord.  I am so happy that I married a man that loves The Lord like I do.  We will raise our precious son to be God-fearing and to love The Lord with all his heart.  My grandfather always made sure that I was in church with him.  I remember sitting in church and he would always give me a butterscotch candy or peppermint.  I also remember the jingle of change in his pockets.  He would give me a handful to put in the children's offering.  I remember getting so excited about that! 

I feel incredibly blessed to have freedom of my religion without persecution.  I can profess my love for The Lord with no repercussions.  I can worship and witness to others.  I feel very blessed to be able to say that.  Today and every day, I am so blessed to have a Savior that loves me more than I can even fathom.  He knows all my faults, but loves me anyway.  He knows the number of hairs on my head and He knows the number of breaths I have on this earth.  He died on the cross for you and me.  We are so undeserving.  Thank you Lord for Your love. 

Happy Easter

I couldn't do a post without a cute picture of my sweet Eli!
