Today is the celebration of Christ's resurrection from the grave. He was crucified and died to save us from our sins. Three days later he rose.
I didn't do anything for Lent this year...I'm not Catholic and Lent has never been something my family or church recognized. But two years ago I gave up chocolate ice cream. lol Of course I didn't give up ALL ice cream. Heh. My coworker gave up chocolate this year and today she'll finally get some yummy chocolaty goodness.
Today we are getting together with a few family members and going to Olive Garden (I hope they're open) but not going to Church. I haven't been to church in ages. It sucks because I loved going to church but it's more than 30 minutes away from our house and I hated going by myself when Nick was working. I loved singing the songs we had. Maybe one of these days I'll start going back. But after being gone for so long it feels really weird to go back.
But I do believe in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I believe that Jesus died for our sins and we are saved. I believe in miracles and that everything happens for a reason - even horrible and bad things. I believe that God gave us free will and that believers are not mind-numbed robots. :) I believe that God has blessed me beyond all my wildest dreams and continues to bless me and my family.
