This is my first "major" holiday away from my family and it is a bit bittersweet. It is great that I am here in Seattle doing what I love to do and being an "adult," but it is very strange to not be with my family!
I received a special package in the mail yesterday from the Easter Bunny, full of chocolate, treats, and other assorted candy. The Easter Bunny did well finding me all the way out here in Seattle!
Attended a church service today at Haller Lake Baptist Church and it was great to meet new people and I even got invited to Easter dinner with the Preacher and his family! So hopefully that will be a great time to fellowship and get to know others in my community and neighborhood.
Today something Preacher Don said really stuck with me. He said, "Christ's resurrection puts certainty in our faith." This is such a strong and empowering statement. There is so little that is certain in this world, but God and his love and Jesus as the Son is one of the things we as Christians can count on. He is Risen! (And will live forever on!)
Remember to live and love and to never take anything for granted. :)
Live and love,
