Happy Easter!

"If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain...and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins...but in fact Christ HAS been raised from the dead...therefore, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain." 1 Corinthians 15

Easter is my favorite holiday. I love everything about it - spring colors, flowers blooming, easter candy, etc. And having a child makes it even more fun. I've been a little giddy all day - I think I've sung "Christ the Lord is Risen Today" so many times that Matt is about to go crazy. But the thing I love most about Easter is what it means to my faith.

Our pastor gave one of the best sermons I've ever heard him give this morning. It was based off of 1 Corinthians 15 and was titled "The Resurrection of Jesus Changes Everything". Those of us that are Christians would say we believe that Jesus was raised from the dead. But if we REALLY believed it, it would change how we spend our time, how we spend our money, how we take risks, etc. And it doesn't.

Anyway, I'll stop preaching, but go read 1 Corinthians 15!

And now for the obligatory are a few of Will from yesterday in his first Easter outfit that his aunt Jessica gave him...

Thankfully the weather was really nice here this weekend so we could take pictures of him outside this morning before church...

After church we went to an Easter brunch hosted by Kellogg Christian Fellowship and Catholics at Kellogg. When we got home Will opened Easter gifts from his grandmothers!

He knew which candy was the best!
