For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.  John 6:40

how comforting is that? to know that we not only have a "new life" but an eternal life with him.
after a few weeks filled with questions and doubts, he simply says, "trust in me." and i hear the word patience. so i will be patient.

we spent easter together as a family. it rained for most of the day.
we hid brightly colored eggs around the house so my four year old "niece" could search for.
we enjoyed lots of comfort food and even more sweets. we watched the duke vs louisville game,
thankfully missing that horrific injury to kevin ware. and we took our traditional family photos.
such a great time and so thankful to be able share a few hours with them.

and after a few tough days and an unruly migraine, this breathtaking sunset was beyond comforting.

in other exciting news... carter made it home safely today and is there waiting on me!!!
so i'm headed back to knoxville to reunite with him and spend a few days in the mountains.

hope you had a wonderful easter!
