start fresh

I'm kind of bummed because I dont have any Easter pics to post.
Sweet Pea went to Long Beach for the weekend to get in quality time with her Nana while me and future hubby lazed about.
I must say it was rather fabulous.
We slept late, stayed in our pj's , watched specials on the crucifiction on the History channel, took naps and generally carried on the way we did before we had a child.
Those days seem like a distant memory now.
I can barely remember my life before Sweet Pea came into our world and turned it upside down. The days when I used to sleep until 1pm , get up to eat and go back to bed. The days where we would just lay in bed ALL day doing nothing but watch bad movies, eat junk and maybe read.
Was that really my life?

Hardly seems like it.

But today is Monday and time to start fresh.

Christ died for our sins to be resurrected 3 days later so that we have the opportunity to start fresh.

There is NO greater sacrifice.

We are eternally endebted to Him.

I woke up yesterday to the sun shining, birds chirping and with a renewed sense of purpose and energy.

I feel been feeling very down lately about the whole jobless/lack of money situation but yesterday I felt peace.

A voice telling me to let go of my uncertainty and skepticism and to hold tightly to my faith now more than ever.

I know that it was the Lord speaking to me.
In times of stress we often question our purpose and begin to doubt wether or not we can really do it.

but I challenge everyone to remember Philippians 4:13

"I can do ALL things through Christ who strenghtens me"
