He is risen































So thankful. 
For peace, and quiet. For family, for home.
For a loving Savior; one who loves me so much that 
He would give His life for the sins of that world that we might
live eternally with Him.
In the past, I have been lukewarm to Easter. I didn't really,
truly, fully appreciate the sacrifice that Christ gave on the cross.
I knew the importance, and I was thankful. But not enough.
It has hit me, more so this year than any other.
How good God is. How faithful.
How much He loves us. Not because we deserve it,
but because He can; because He is good. So good.

Happy (early) Resurrection day, friends.
We can have joy, in the knowledge that God will never forsake us.
He defeated death, and He lives today! 
What a reason to celebrate!

much love,
Mikailah

  8. Mikailah, I agree. This year I've really started to get more involved with my church, and started going to youth group, and I've appreciated what God has done for me so much more. Happy Easter!
