This group has been soaking up all my attention the past couple of weeks!

My brave sister-in-law took her four kids (ranging in age from 6 years to 5 months) and boarded a plane from Florida to Kansas for a two week visit. My brother met us all out here 4 days before they returned.

My kids had a blast hanging out with all of their cousins... and there were more than a few tears when they left to return. Getting all these kiddos together only once a year is not nearly enough as they would play with each other I'm glad they love each other so much! And thankful for the time with had together!

Hello, long lost friends.... how was your Easter?

Ours was lovely...despite the fact that Jesse and I had a huge argument right as we were leaving for church.

The kind that makes your older kids tell you that you both need to listen to Jesus...

And despite the fact that most of the household is sick with coughs, runny noses, and fevers.

My dear friend, Jenn told me: "It's just a reminder that you still need Easter."

Yes, indeed!

We still need Jesus and His Grace... it is new for us each and every day!

We are a far cry from perfect, and just when I begin to forget just what a terrible, rotten sinner I am...

I'm reminded once again just how much I need Him to be righteousness for me!

Thank you, Jesus for your sacrifice! I praise you for the unmerited grace you've so lovingly pour out on me!
