Saturday's Song!

This song best fits my mood today!
I think I am finally grateful my children are growing up.
I didn't realize until yesterday that, it wasn't just,
that I'm not running around harried trying to get stuff
to build Easter baskets and color eggs, and such.
(why did I do that?)
But, BECAUSE I am not doing that,
I am now free to truly think
on what the whole thing means to me and for us all.
The Last supper, the Foot Washing, The Betrayal,
The False Accusations, The Crucifixation,
The Tomb and The Resurrection!
Please Enjoy Wes King singing I Believe!

I just got back from Target...the Easter aisle- INSANE!!! I don't have any kido's of my own so I love spoiling my neice and nephew!!
If you get a chance I posted a picture of the Easter play my nephew was in. The play was so sweet and had some Grandparents crying. I love this Season most of all.
Easter blessings to you!

What Does it Mean Anyway? "Free to Fly"...

Well, it's like this: Here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Free: a : having the legal and political rights of a citizen b : enjoying civil and political liberty c : enjoying political independence or freedom from outside domination d : enjoying personal freedom : not subject to the control or domination of another2 a : not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being : choosing or capable of choosing for itself...having a scope not restricted by qualification 7 a : not obstructed, restricted, or impeded ...Now, here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Fly:1 a : to move in or pass through the air with wings b : to move through the air or before the wind or through outer space c : to float, wave, or soar in the air ... a : to take flight ...6 : to work successfully ...Examples which apply from Websters: fly high : to be elated - fly in the face of or fly in the teeth of : to stand or act forthrightly or brazenly in defiance or contradiction of

What does this mean in my life? This means that in life we are meant to be free. While historically mankind has not always enjoyed the opportunity to fully appreciate what that means, we are so indescribably fortunate as to live in a time of the greatest spiritual, physical, financial and political freedom ever known. Freedom doesn't come cheap, nor does it come easy. But the best things in life don't come that way do they? As I write this I am struck by how this sounds like a political statement, and for me this is much more of a spiritual thing, but, same goes for that (political that is). Freedom doesn't come easy. And it's worth whatever fight you have to make to overcome in your life in order to live a life that succeeds. Now the questions is - what is success for you? What is your standard? In my mind what is needed is a definite target - because you can't hit and maintain a moving target. A stable, rock-solid, anchor with no variable, yet multi-faceted. Something pure, just and worthy. If you look at any web page of news you can see that our society is certainly lacking in this area. What a great time to live as a rebel! Nowadays to be a rebel, all you have to do is be willing to engage in the battle of life, while anchored to Christ!
