Happy Easter

My 5 blessings & Me
Happy Easter! What a special day today is. We celebrate our risen Lord! Although personally I think every day should be a celebration of Jesus.  I think about the great price that was paid on Calvary's cross on my behalf and I am overwhelmed. We sang the song, the Power of the Cross, in our worship service this morning and I am always moved by the verses, especially the last one.

Oh, to see my name written in the wounds

for through your suffering I am free
death is crushed to death
life is mine to live
won through you selfless love

this the pow'r of the cross
son of God slain for us
what a love, what a cost
we stand forgiven at the cross!

Sweet daughter
Our middle child likes making her own things.  She has learned to sew well enough now that she whipped up this dress in an afternoon, pretty much completely on her own!  She only asked me for a little bit of guidance here and there just to make sure she was doing it right.  I think she did a fantastic job!
She used the DEVON pattern from SIS BOOM.  We love Jennifer Paganelli's patterns and fabrics.

Spring break means the college boy is home! I am so thankful to have all my children under the same roof for a while.  The college boy stays busy at school studying to prepare for med school and playing in the campus band.  They travel and play on weekends so he has not been home very much this semester. I am so glad to have him home for a whole week! I will be busy this week cooking all his favorite foods.
