Throwback Thursday // Remembering Easters Past + Holiday Inspiration!


One of the best parts of having a blog is being able to look back over years worth of documented memories.  This Throwback Thursday I'd like to skip down Easter memory lane!  Below are photos from the past four Easters with a direct link to each holiday recap as shared in those week's Five Loves on Friday blog posts.  If you're interested click on through and see how we celebrated, pick up some impressive Easter tablescape inspiration from my Aunt Ann and Cousin Emily, and join me in "Aww!"ing over my beautiful growing girls!

As we approach Good Friday tomorrow I'd also like to share the news about what makes it so GOOD!

Not sure why Jesus had to die?  What does it have to do with you anyway?  Check this out:

There is nothing that we could do to earn our salvation.  It is a gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.   All our "righteous deeds" are like filthy rags before a holy God.  Through Him alone can we can have redemption!  Christ willingly shed His spotless blood as the only acceptable payment for the FULL debt of our sins.  He died, was buried, and on the third day rose from the grave, defeating sin and death!  When we repent and place our trust in Christ, we are forgiven and offered eternal life!  That is the GOOD news of Good Friday!



I'm taking a blogging break to celebrate the holiday with family.  I'll see you back here next Friday, April 21st!  Wishing you a lovely Easter, and more importantly, a forgiven one through the finished work of Christ, our risen Savior!

I would love to hear from you today!! I enjoy reading each and every comment I receive. (I do moderate them before they're published. Gotta keep it family friendly! ;)) My preferred means of replying to you is via email, so please make sure you aren't a "no-reply blogger". It's sad when you take the time to leave a sweet lit'l comment, but I'm unable to reach you with my appreciation. If I can't reply to you through email, I will reply directly below your comment, right here on this post. ;)

Thanks for visiting! Have a fabulous day! :*)
