Good Friday and a trip to Space Center Houston

"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.'"- John 11:25-26
"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed."
- I Peter, 11:24

I love Easter and reflecting on the amazing thing that Jesus did for us! Yesterday was Good Friday and a day of reflection and anticipation for the Christ to fulfill the prophesies and rise from the grave . This day was a day of great suffering for Him who was sent to save us from our sins. It is incomprehensible for me to think that someone could love us that much that he would allow himself to be tortured, hung on a cross, and be publicly humiliated all for me! Thank you Jesus for freeing us from sin and giving us ever lasting life through You!

On a much less heavy note, my family is in town (minus my sister-we miss you Kimberly!), and they wanted to visit Space Center Houston (when in Rome, huh?!?). So, we all piled into the car and ventured the 10 minutes to Space Center to be Houston tourists for the day. It was a beautiful day outside, and we enjoyed the great weather on the tram tour that took us to the current Mission Control as well as another stop that housed a gigantic rocket. Lila loved walking through the warehouse that housed the rocket. She pointed at each astronaut on the poster that was alongside the wall and spoke to each one. I have no idea what she was saying to them, but she sure thought it was important.

When we got home, we decided to practice for the Easter Egg hunt on Saturday by placing a few plastic eggs in the grass in the backyard and having her pick them up and put her in her basket. She really enjoyed getting a few eggs in her basket and then playing with the few that she picked up. She definitely was thinking quality, not quantity!
