Happy Resurrection Day!

What a beautiful Easter Sunday in Maryland! I’m going to both church services this morning because the Drama and Music ministries will be doing a program for the second church service.

I’m excited.

My Munch is in Danville, Virginia with his dad’s family. It’s a tradition that I started when he was an infant and one that he will always keep. It’s important for him to have the love of his grandma and her family engulfing him. She’s an amazing woman.

Munch was telling me last week that he was super excited to go and visit his grandma. He saw her last month for her 75th birthday, but he enjoys spending time with her. I smiled. When I asked him was he going to do an Easter egg hunt at his grandma’s house he said “I’m not sure.” “Well, I’m sure that she’ll get you a big Easter basket baby” I said. He said “Mommy, the Easter bunny brings me my Easter basket, not my grandma.”

And just like that I remembered that my son still believes in the magic of the Easter Bunny. I love that. In all the drama from the last week, it warms my soul to know that he still believes in the great things about being a kid. He knows that Easter is more than baskets or colored eggs. He knows that it is about the resurrection of Christ.

He will go to sunrise service at his grandma’s church with his dad. A beautiful church in the country where everyone has watched him grow up year after year. He will go downstairs after church is over for the sunrise breakfast that is a mandatory part of their service. He will eat breakfast and smell the scents of good ole’ country cooking. He will probably just eat the bacon and potatoes. He’s pretty particular.

He will pray and he will remember what this day is all about. I pray that he will hear me whispering “with God all things are possible.” This is not a day of sadness but of happiness because we know that Christ rose. So, on this beautiful Sunday I wish you thoughts of colored eggs, Easter baskets and bunnies, but more importantly I wish you the comfort of knowing that Jesus paid it all.

God & Brennan

Last week I told my friend that I wanted to make God proud.  His response, “God is proud of you”.  I didn’t believe him.  Not that I thought he was lying, but how could he know if God was proud of me?  But God.  I have to say that again.  But, God.  You see that same evening, God allowed Brennan to tell me that he loved me and tell me that I’m the best mommy in the world.  Why, you might ask?  Because I take him to church.  God was answering me.  He was letting me know that he was proud of me because simply, I take my son to church. I loved it.  


God’s pride in me was further demonstrated to me how proud of me he is with Brennan when I took Brennan to school on Friday. Brennan said that he doesn’t like Easter. I asked Why? He said “Because I didn’t get an Easter basket from my teacher”. I asked “Why didn’t you get an Easter basket?” He responded “Because I messed up on my shapes and now I don’t have any candy.” I replied, “I’m sure there is more to this story, but Easter isn’t about getting candy. It’s about the resurrection of Jesus.” So, we spent the next five minutes talking about Jesus and he said, “Mommy, we need Jesus don’t we?” Yes, was my reply. He said, “Like in the Lion King when Nala tells Simba we need you, that’s how we need Jesus?” Can I just tell you that I broke down in tears? Wow!



If you’re like me and you’re trying to remember that scene, I’ve attached it for you.
