Are you ready for Easter?
Well, not actually. I haven’t even thought about plans for the day other than church, and we usually host dinner for our family at our house. Other details have not been worked out either. But hey, would anyone expect any different from me? Not likely.
I am ready for Easter in the spiritual sense, though. For years Christmas was my favorite holiday, but in the last few years Easter has become the frontrunner in the favorite of all days of the year. Christmas celebrates Jesus coming to earth, but Easter is when we celebrate Him overcoming death, hell, and the grave when He became the ultimate sacrifice for all of our sins and on the 3rd day resurrected from the dead. He did it all just for us. He is Risen!!!
Nothing excites me more than knowing my Savior paid my complete debt… especially when I am far from worthy.
I decided to make a simple little printable based on Luke 24:5-7.
Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’ ”
Isn’t it wonderful? Couldn’t you just shout? He is risen! Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus!
I want to share this joy with everyone! So I’m sharing this free printable as an Easter gift for each of you.
With all the change going on in our home, my Fall (or Autumn, if that is your preferred term, 😉 ) decor is more than lacking this year. It’s not that I don’t want to do it. It’s that I’m just way too distracted.
At the same time, I have been working to implement more scripture around our home. I have scriptures for encouragement, fitness, healing, and more.
When I was trying to think of a verse that would fit for Fall (um, Autumn), there was one that stood out in my mind. Not only is it fitting for the season of the year we are in, but perfect for this season of my life.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Since the house is lacking the leaves, pumpkins, and scarecrows at the moment, I decided to make a printable to frame. (I would say that I am going to decoupage it on to a sheet of wood, but obviously I’m not sure I even have the time to do that right now. Maybe next year…) So that is what I did, I made a simple printable with Galatians 6:9 using Fall (Okay, Autumn) colors that I can throw in a frame and place on my piano or coffee bar.
A great reminder, pretty, and a way to help our family memorize the scripture and put it to work.
So while I don’t claim that it is gorgeous or fancy, I thought I would share it with all of you. Just in case there is someone else out there, right now, that needs this reminder as well.
Happy Fall/Autumn and God bless!
Hello there RSHTH readers! I’m Stephanie from Crayon Marks and Tiger Stripes, and I am finally making my debut as a new contributor! I am so excited to be a part of this awesome group of gals. I cannot wait to share with you what God has placed on my heart and to encourage you in your adventure of Christian parenting!
(Editor’s note: Stephanie actually wrote this post back in August. Due to different things that came up on my end, this post was not put up until now. (Sorry, Stephanie!) Please go to Crayon Marks and Tiger Stripes and catch up on what all Stephanie has been up to. Remember to keep her in your prayers!)
As you may have gathered from other posts, I’m one of the preggos. I am halfway through my second trimester with my second baby, but let me tell you about the first trimester…sick. Sick and tired. Sick and tired every day…all day! Oh my goodness, the second trimester is GLORIOUS! I’m only a few weeks away from the 3rd trimester, where things will get less glorious as I become more uncomfortable and start the ever so fun waddle walk. That just means I’m that much closer to meeting this sweet baby girl so I say…BRING ON THE WADDLE!
Everything about pregnancy is unpredictable. Same goes for delivery. Unless you are having a caesarean, you have no idea when or how quickly baby is going to come. Despite the unpredictableness (yes, that’s a word!) of growing tiny humans and delivering them into the world, you can prepare for the big day by having a bag packed and ready to go weeks before that baby decides to make his/her big debut. Wondering what to pack? Here are some essentials to pack for labor and delivery:
These are the essential things you will need. Take it from a mom who has been there/done that and is about to do it again, and an RN trained in OB/nursery. I got ya covered, sweet mommas!
Now that you know what to bring, it’s t
