Congrats to William and Kate :) Hope your marriage is pure bliss, as is mine.
p.s. I have to be honest - isn't it almost disgusting how much attention this event has received? Think of all the more important things they could be reporting on the news. CRAZY!

The song Love is Here is also one of my favorites of theirs, and it seemed pretty appropriate for Easter weekend.
Easter is, without a doubt, one of my favorite holidays. It means new life now. It means new life for eternity, thanks to our Savior who became sin for us, was buried and sealed up in a tomb, then rose again after three days time and lives TODAY. RIGHT NOW. Love is HERE with us. It is within reach. We just have to believe in Him. It is so simple, yet it seems so hard for some people to grasp.
If you are reading this blog today and do not know for sure if you died right at this moment where you would spend eternity - let me help you! I was blessed to have someone share that with me, and I would love to share it with you.
Christians are the only people who have the privilege of serving, worshiping and praying to a God (capital G) who is ALIVE. He's not dead - He's risen, as He said. Visit the tomb today and you will not find a body lying inside. He is alive and well, Friend! Accept Him today and experience His Love. It is HERE NOW.
Hope everyone has a sunny and happy Easter!

I am going to be out of commission starting tomorrow morning, so no blogging tomorrow for my typical "Favorite Song Friday." I was thinking, how about you all comment and share some of your favorite songs. Any genre - let's hear it!
AND - Special thanks to all of you who have started following me! It just encouraged my heart to see that "followers" number go up each and every day. I'm still not quite where I want to be, but I know the blog will keep growing! I have started following some of you all as well. Forgive me for not getting to ALL of your blogs just yet. I have been so slammed lately at work, it's been wild.
Have a wonderful Thursday and enjoy the weekend, as I will be enjoying mine to the MAX.

Got a question? I may or may not have the answer. I know someone who does have the answer, though. God does. But sometimes He doesn’t give us the response we’d like. Maybe it is yes; maybe it is no. Maybe the answer is wait. This Friday’s favorite song is so wonderful – great words – a great message. I enjoy music, not only for the beautiful sounds, but mainly for the words and how they are put together. That is why I love writing. It is such a challenge to put words together in such a way that they convey a feeling – not just a message alone. I am not sure who wrote the song “When Answers Aren’t Enough,” (I should look that up) but I know it has spoken to my heart! Truly, when the answer you get from God (or anyone else, for that matter) is just not what you hoped for, HE is all you need.
PS! Please pray for my brother, Daniel, this weekend and throughout the next 5 months. We will drop him off at a hotel Sunday night. He will leave Monday morning and fly to D.C., then Missouri for 9 weeks of basic training. We will see him for his graduation from basic, then he will continue with his Military Police training until September. He is excited to get started, and we are happy for him. We will miss him tons, though. Appreciate the prayers!!!
