easter {giveaway!}

this morning as i took communion alongside friends and family at our new church here in johnson city i closed my eyes and prayed the only words my mind could utter...
   i don't know how to thank you...

how do you thank someone who gave His life so that yours would be redeemed...oh how He loves us...


4 more things to be thankful for on this happy easter weekend...
#1 - these little munchkins...



#2 - 3 generations of bunny cake makers...




#3 - i just got 2 inches chopped off my hair which means i chop at least 5 minutes off drying time.  this is a big deal.  it's actually the difference between me wearing my hair in a ponytail every day of my life and actually blowing it out a few days of the week...yes - i know this really has nothing to do with easter...i'm still thankful...


#4 - soaking in the words of my sweet friend Emily Lynch who so beautifully captured what easter really means to me in her song jesus tore the veil...


Jesus died and rose again
and when he did he tore that veil in two
down into the depths to find the keys to loose the chains and make us new
he saw death and kept his head
and we're forever in his debt
can't measure it


i am saved 
he came for me
that everything
could be redeemed
in my shame
he carries me, he carries me...


and here's the giveaway...
a copy of emily's new cd


it's awesome.
you want it.
all you have to do is either become one of my blog followers or post a comment letting me know something you are thankful for this easter...i'll put all of your names in a hat on tuesday and pick the lucky winner...


happy happy easter y'all...
