Easter Blessings and Fun

With the bit of craziness in our lives recently regarding houses and such (more on that to come), it was nice to just have some fun together for this past Easter weekend, take time for each other, and reflect also on the true goodness of our Lord. Our pastor spoke about the innate sinfulness of man (& woman!) and what an amazing blessing it is to have a Saviour to cover that sin. I am so thankful that I am spared "the sting of death" because I have "victory through the Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 15:56-57). And I rejoiced in that Risen Lord this weekend!
I tried to get a family picture Easter morning, but I waited till after church and by then everyone was kinda falling apart...
Saturday we enjoyed a fun Easter Egg Hunt with our church. It was a beautiful day and some church members graciously opened their beautiful homes & yards to all the little egg-hunters!

Friday Grammie & Georgia dyed, glittered, & colored some Easter eggs for us all to admire. One of the kits she'd gotten had chalk to color on the dyed eggs with, and I admit I think I enjoyed the coloring part even more than Georgia! :)

How blessed we are to be together for Holidays like Easter!! I am so pleased to watch the Tampa Hipp's grow in Christ's grace and your many blessings serve as a testimony to how faithful our Lord and savior is to those who make him the center of their lives. Easter is a good time for all of us to reflect on all of our blessings- health & family are high on my list!! It is such a gift to know our sins are covered through the gift Christ gave us on the cross and we can trust in joining him if we focus on being good and faithful servants. Love Grammie
