This weekend we celebrated our twins turning 10 with a Glow-in-the-Dark party.  10…they turned 10!!  Where did the last 10 years go?  Those years have brought us so much joy and I want them back again!  We said after 10 we would stop doing big themed parties, so this one is hitting me pretty hard.  I have had so much pleasure in planning each of their birthdays, so I’m going to take a few moments to recap the last 10 birthdays.  1 – Mickey and Minnie, 2 – Noah’s Ark, 3 – Dora and Diego, 4 – The Circus, 5 – The Peanuts Gang, 6 – Superheroes turn 6, 7 – Camp Cannon & Kyndal, 8 – Superstars (WWE and American Girl), 9 – All Stars (baseball), 10 – Get Your Glow On.  God has blessed us so by giving us these two.  I don’t know what I did to deserve them.  I pray that God will continue to keep them under his wing, and their lives will bring glory to Him.  Happy Birthday my loves!

“…the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.”

~ Job 42:10

Weekly Picture & Scripture

I love this season of Easter that we are in, because as Christians, it’s the biggest event of our faith – Jesus’s path to the cross.  This time of year has me reflecting often of that week leading up to His crucifixion and resurrection, that week we call Holy Week.  And I think of those main events: the Last Supper, Good Friday, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection.  But this week, I’ve thought mostly of Peter.  I’m not sure there was another disciple so passionate about following Jesus, yet who he is so often remembered as is one who denied Jesus three times.  And I wonder how many times WE deny Jesus.  How many times do we skip church because we have something else to do?  How many times do we participate in an activity that may not be pleasing to God, but we feel pressured by friends or don’t want to miss out on a good time?  How many times do we not speak up for Jesus in fear of what others might think about us?  It’s easy to point the finger at Peter and say our faith is stronger, but I dare say that Peter’s faith was as strong as a rock, after all, that is the name Jesus gave him.  Though we confess in our hearts our love for Jesus, what actions of ours show our denial?  Maybe we are not so unlike Peter after all.

“And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the saying of the Lord, how he had said to him, ‘Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.’  And he went out and wept bitterly.”

~ Luke 22:61-62

This week was tough.  We said goodbye to a dear, sweet, Godly man from our church.  But this season that we are in represents new life…hope.  We are approaching the Easter season, a time to reflect on our Savior’s journey to the cross and what that means to us who believe.  So, as I was explaining to my kids this week, sometimes life gets us down.  Sometimes we face sorrow.  Sometimes we get depressed.  Sometimes we have to say goodbye to someone we loved.  But Jesus is our Joy, and we can take comfort in knowing that we are His.

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”

~ John 14:3

Weekly Picture & Scripture

I just realized I never blogged this beautiful senior’s photo session.  And it was my first time venturing into this setting and exploring the different magical secrets it offered.  A definite must go back to some time.  And since we are talking about exploring the unknown, this scripture seemed quite fitting.

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse”

~ Romans 1:20
