The Easter Story with M&Ms

I am preparing for my oldest daughter's school party for Easter.  I was racking my brain trying to figure out a cheap, but awesome party favor to give to everyone.  One of the things that I love about her going to a Christian School is I can do things like this.

I looked at all the Easter M&M Poems out there, and didn't really like them, they didn't flow quite right or, which may have bothered me more, they didn't go in the order they set out in the beginning of the poem.  We have a discount grocery store in town and they had large bags of M&Ms on sale for $1.80 so I bought a bunch and will be splitting them up and putting them with this poem that I made up instead.  It is definitely inspired by the Christmas one that is floating around out there and a few of the other Easter ones- so I can't take credit for the creativity of the M W 3 and E idea....

The TRUE Easter story isn't about a bunny - it is about a Salvation - about a Savior that died on the cross for all of us, but the grave could not hold HIM - HE ROSE!  You can read about it starting in  Matthew 28.

Feel free to use this, share it, pin it, link it...  whatever it is you do.  Hope that you have a great Easter!  Love to you all! OUR SAVIOR IS RISEN - HE IS RISEN INDEED!

This past year, I have been learning a lot about balancing the books.  I am blessed with an amazing husband who has always taken care of the financial aspects of or marriage, including me in on important decisions and making things work and helping me to understand; but when you run your own (confidential) business, you have to do it yourself. 

I would say I was doing okay, but it is HARD to get the right balance when you aren't used to it.  I have to be very diligent and stay on top of things or I have to go back and try to correct things and remember things.  It is really a challenge.  I am NOT a numbers or math person.  
Then I began thinking about life in general, how it is difficult sometimes to manage and balance the times in life that are very busy or more challenging.  How often do we just let things slide and then go back and try to fix them later?
During my reading of Isaiah 40 this morning, I was reminded that God is better at balance than anyone out there. He has made …

This IS the Day

It is so easy to get lost in every day life.  This is evidenced by the fact that I haven't posted in 4 years...  I have been busy!  My kids are now 9 and 10 years old, I went through grad-school and got a Masters of Science in Clinical Counseling, started my own business, decided to homeschool my children, got a pastoral commissioning, became a Certified Temperament Counselor, and have international students that live in my house, BUT that dose not give me an excuse to not be seeking and following God.

Honest moment.... Life is hard... Actually it is mean...  I have been struggling in so many ways.
It is HARD being busy...  It is HARD being a mom and a homeschooling mom at that...  It HARD having the title "pastor" put in front of your name...  It is HARD...  Where ever you are, I am sure there are HARD parts about it as well.  Life is just plain HARD sometimes.  I joke and say, first world problems, but it relates to everyone, first or third world.

Here are some of the …

You Can Live Like Jesus and Thank God.

It is a challenge to live like Jesus.  Jesus was always putting God first.  He sacrificed everything for us!  My 10-year-old daughter is in cheer leading, and, biased opinion, I think she is pretty good at it.  She will never be a flyer, she is built like her mom.  We are sturdy, people that have dense bone structure.  She has devoted considerable amount of time learning to be a base and learning to be the best base that she can be.  She practices 2 nights a week and cheers at the Junior Football League games on Sunday.  I have been VERY impressed with how much their team is doing with stunts and the number of cheers they have learned.

While my daughter has been working very hard, she has been in a grouping that she has been used to.  It was her and one other base that learned to work together with their back spotter.  The teams were re-arranged on Monday and the new partner and her did not have their rhythm and my child got hurt.  It was just a simple muscle sprain, but she was reall…
