Thankful Thursday


"Easter is very important to me. It's a second chance." Reba McIntyre

Easter is very important to me, it's a second chance.

Getting things right the first time doesn't always happen.....at least for me. I'm glad for second chances and sometimes even third and fourth and fifth ones.  Grateful for....

-Holidays. No getting up early. No rushing to programs, school, meetings, or appointments. 
-Holidays. special foods that we eat only at this time of year especially egg matza and marshmellow peeps. 
-Passover - for me it's about freedom. Really grateful for that. 
-Easter - For me, it's about love and sacrifice and going the extra just because. 
-Mostly grateful for the touch of His gentleness.....He's my run to safety....the One I can tell my heart...the One whose always there.....never leaves....never gives up on me.....& accepts me just as I am....with all my imperfections.

Happy Easter, Guys!!!!

Hi Nikki,
I too am grateful for the many chances I have been given. Life is messy and I mess up all the time. But like someone once said, He can take our mess and turn it into a message. Praise Him for that! Happy Easter to you and your family! Praying this Easter weekend will be a beautiful blessing to you.

Hugs from my heart to yours,
Sandi
