Happy Easter 2010!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
~John 3:16

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
~Acts 4:12

Today is an amazing day...Easter! Today, we celebrate Jesus conquering death, rising to new life. Because of this amazing miracle, I have been given the gift of eternal life through my Savior, Jesus Christ! One day, I will also have a resurrection...what an amazing day that will be!

Thank you, Lord, for providing a way for my sins to be forgiven, for sending your son to live as a man and die a horrible death, and for bringing him back to life again! Somehow, thank you doesn't seem like near enough.

Abby's doing so much better today! After a much-needed night of sleep away from the hospital, I received the best phone call...Abby's voice letting me know the Easter Bunny had come to her hospital room. She ate breakfast, she's up and playing, getting her toes painted, laughing and talking, and bossing me around! Hallelujah!

The doctor is considering a release of today or thankful! The looming threat of a chest tube seems to be behind us as long as today continues to be a good one. Eating and drinking and keeping down oral antibiotics will be the key to a successful day.

I cannot thank you all enough for your prayers, phone calls, Facebook messages, balloons, gifts, a cozy bed in a welcoming home, a visit from the Easter Bunny and positive thoughts! Jason and I have had an overwhelming amount of peace throughout this ordeal.

Happy Easter! Enjoy your egg hunts, Easter frocks, deviled eggs, family and friends. Hug your loved ones a little longer today!
