We have had an eventful and fun Easter weekend. It is wonderful to be doing things together. It makes my life here in Houston feel right and good. I love sharing my family with the people I have come to know on this journey. My family is a huge part of me and allowing others to know them gives even more perspective of me.

Easter is a fabulous holiday. The meaning of it gives such focus and purpose to life. With out His death and resurrection our lives would be lost. He choose to take on death for us. As I look death in the eyes much more freely I realize a smidge what that choice might have felt like. I have no choice in my situation but even so I would have a hard time saying yes Father let me bare the weight of the worlds sins on my shoulders so that I can redeem them. Yet He choose to be used by His Father to redeem us. I am thankful for His choice, my life forever changed by His love for us.

We enjoyed some Easter tradition this weekend. We colored eggs and did a Easter bag hunt instead of a basket hunt on Saturday. We ventured to our friends house for a swim and fun. The day was full. Today we celebrated His resurrection at church and enjoyed two different families we have been blessed by. I am blown away by how The Lord has provided for us through friends. The ways He reminds us of His love is surprising and reassuring. His people that are loving and serving others actively with their lives continually points back to His glory.

People are praying and we a seeking His hand in this journey. We continue to trust and know He loves us and walks with us. Some days are wearisome and long yet He carries us. My shots are done for this round. We continue to monitor my counts and need for blood products. The latest complaint would be my mouth pain. I did mention it to Dr this week. He will keep an eye on it as AML can spread to the gums, this has me anxious yet in reality I am in His hands.

He is Risen……
