"The Wondrous Cross"

Today is the greatest day in history.  We celebrate the risen Savior and the life He freely gives to anyone that will believe and accept Him.  If it weren't for the cross we wouldn't have today or any day to worship what Jesus did for us.  We sang "The Wondrous Cross" in church today and I was grateful to know that the tears falling from my eyes were tears of gratitude for ALL that He already did for me.  I didn't have to do anything to gain His love, He freely gave it and all I have to do is believe and accept His amazing grace.  One of the lines in the song says "Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all."
How many days do I neglect to give Him my best or my all?  I am thankful for today and that all my plans for this day were changed and I was blessed to be at church to worship Him and to give praise back for ALL He continues to do for me.  

Our original plans were to go to Hawaii and be gone today and all week, but my new chemo treatment changed those plans.  We decided a trip to Branson for the weekend would be a good getaway for us, but Friday came and my body decided it was best for me to stay home.  I was in bed all day with sickness and spent Saturday recovering.  I wanted to have a pity party when Friday came and I felt I had messed up our anniversary plans twice.  Tony being the best husband ever told me that it didn't matter where we were, as long as he was with me it didn't matter if we were in Hawaii, Branson or our home, he would be a happy man.  How can you complain or grumble when God blesses you with a husband that loves you so unconditionally and just loves to be with you.  

After lunch we went to hang out with The Kerby family and watch Hudson Easter Egg hunt.  That in itself was worth staying at home.  He was a happy little guy looking for all his eggs.

The McCollum's invited us over this afternoon and what a blessing to spend time with their family.  They prayed over me and Tony.  We had a nice relaxing time visiting and catching up with each other lives.  We ended our evening at Bryan and Jenna's house. They made us a nice steak dinner and we were able to spend more time with Hudson and Rhett.  I am so thankful for feeling so much better today and for the time with family and friends.  God's love is amazing and so divine!!!


"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."


  1. Thankful for you that the weekend ended well. It does sound like these new chemo treatments are tough on you. Hopefully the most difficult treatment is done. To be surrounded by friends and family who love you, is something to cherish - a true gift from God.
    I love Hudson's big basket for the eggs! He expected quite a haul.
    You are right on about Easter. It is love so undeserved given to us. I think of the thief on the cross; he was forgiven and he only needed to ask. We cannot begin to comprehend God grace and forgiveness.

  2. So glad you had a good Easter and were able to attend church. You have such an amazing spirit and are such an inspiration to me! Blessings abundant to you as you "go forth."
