"He is not here; He has risen!"(Luke 24:6). Jesus, our Savior, is the one who came to die for our sins so we wouldn't have to. However, it seems that the Easter Bunny always tries to fog our minds and take our focus away from the true meaning of Easter. This morning at church, I was feeling humbled as I was reminded of the ultimate gift: His death on the cross, so I can be freed from sin and have the privilege of calling Him Savior and Redeemer! Thank you Lord, for caring for a sinner like me and loving me abundantly to send your son to die for me! I was thinking of my other God given gift (aka Jacqueline), and my prayer for her is that one day she will accept the gift of salvation and as she eats her commercialized Easter sweet treats, she'll be reminded that there is nothing more sweet than to believe that she is forgiven and loved unconditionally by our Savior.
One of my favorites things right now is to make Jacqueline smile. When she gives me a big gummy smile, it just melts my heart! I never thought I would be such a "mae coruja"(Portuguese slang for "proud mom"). WARNING: You too may fall in love with her captivating smile!
I'm living the happiest time of my life. I'm married to the man that I've prayed for and I'm the mother of 2 beautiful tiny little people who have invaded my heart the moment that I laid my eyes on them. I would eat cake every day if I could. I love feeling clean and sometimes event take a shower before working out or going to the beach, I sleep with an "eye sheet", I love smelling my husband, I love coffee with tons of cream, my guilty pleasure is watching Teen Mom and reading "trash" magazines, I have phobia of frogs, I pop my knuckles, love the smell of clean laundry,I often misplace my car keys, phone and wallet. I wish I was more patient. I hope my children one day will accept Jesus as their Savior. I blog because I love taking pictures of my children and writing about what I don't want to forget.
