I Know My Redeemer Lives!

This weekend has been such a special one celebrating our Risen Savior!  We were blessed to be with our families for a few days and share in the Hope we have in Him.  A precious reminder that has been constantly on my mind is that no matter what challenges or trials we may face on earth, we have an eternal hope of glory in Christ Jesus.  What a precious promise His resurrection brings not just on Easter Sunday, but everyday!  Praise His Name!

 We had a couple play dates with our friends across the street, it was through them that we were able to stay in the house we lived in for three months in Carthage.    The park was another goodbye.  The boys loved being able to walk to it from the "new house." Another goodbye we had to make was to the goats at the zoo.

 At the same zoo, there is a lorikeet feeding area.   This is always a treat.

 This may be one of the things my little man misses most on a consistent basis.  The garbage truck picking up his bag of tr…
