Happy Easter 2014

Happy Easter everyone! Today has been gorgeous in so many ways. The weather is beautiful. Our family is terrific. And God is amazing!!! As we celebrate our Lords resurrection today, we can all step back and breath in a new beginning. The good news is among us, Christ has risen, we can walk in faith and choose to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, soaking in that last commandment He left us with.

That commandment makes me think of a message a childhood friend posted about on Facebook recently, the contagious nature of a smile and choice to be happy. A philosophy I have always carried in my pocket..."my cup is more than half full, and most often overflows!" Being happy is a choice. Wearing a smile is a choice. My faith has always allowed that smile to be on my face, even in the roughest of times. Confidence in Christ and the power of prayer keeps my life positive. There are so many times I feel overwhelmed, but a quick prayer and deep look into nature reveals the beauty He has created. For instance, focusing on a cardinal dancing on my plants in the yard warms my soul and makes it clear life is beautiful and God is powerful!

On this day, I hope each of you finds happiness, a smile, a prayer to soothe your heart, and the love of Jesus Christ. Peace be with you!
