Isn't it weird how you can have something so profound happen......something that reaches into your soul and forever changes it.....and yet, life keeps going. You return to work, and the job is still there, conversation is the same.....days pass, holidays come, holidays go......and you move forward, but differently. Perspective shift.....heart shift.....mind shift....life shifts......and yet is the same.
I feel so torn inside and there is nothing within me that wants to change anything on my blog.....no desire to move beyond Patrick's pictures, his stories, his memories. And yet, other stories in our life happen, the kids say funny things, make cute faces, make moments precious. Chris makes me smile, makes my heart happy, makes my soul relax and feel peaceful. So this is my attempt to share the things in life that are continuing to occur.....the precious gifts that God gives us in this world......what precious, priceless moments and people He has given me......I KNOW that I am blessed.
THE LORD GIVES AND THE LORD TAKES AWAY
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.
So here are the pictures of our Easter weekend.....our Easter Egg Hunt with the other families living in our building......The kids LOVED it! 700 eggs found in 4 minutes flat!
After taking about 17 pictures, this one was the closest we got to both of them looking through the eggs....it was a little intimidating for Alethia.....
All the families gathered at the starting line.....notice who has his children at the very front, inching forward minute by minute to make sure he released them the moment the word "GO" was announced!
Caleb took off on his own, wandering around to find eggs with candy, but Daddy steadily guided his precious Alethia....she's a bit more cautious with that many people around...still an observer!
The grand finale! Lollipops and Sweet-Tarts! No wonder we're all smiles!
Thank you Lord for precious moments in the midst of challenges!
