Today’s picture is something that cuts me pretty deeply… Emily had her first little tumble yesterday whilst trying to stand on her tip-toes to see the neighbour’s dog… She faceplanted on the concrete driveway off the steps leading up to our house and today bears a rather nasty little scar down her face! She was pretty upset… and had a fair amount of blood oozing out! It is really hard seeing someone that I love SO MUCH, in pain!
I find it strange timing that as I write this, it is coming up to Easter – a time when I remember someone else that I care about very much, enduring unfathomable suffering. I am sitting typing this as I watch “The Passion of the Christ” which I have to admit, is turning my insides all around!!! I am looking forward to sharing at an Easter Camp in Feilding over this Easter time and really sense that there are great opportunities to encourage a whole bunch of young people to live lives that change the world aroung them… Living lives in service of a risen saviour!!!
God Bless you all this Easter – Enjoy the chocolate, but don’t let the occasion stop there!!! Do some reading about the Easter Story and MAYBE even find a church service to attend!!!
