Instead of writing a new blog post today, I am simply taking a few minutes to celebrate. Why am I celebrating, you ask? Because it’s Good Friday and we serve a God who is very good indeed! Our God is so big that He was able to create the whole world but personal enough to know the number of hairs on your head. When God saw His people dying in sin He forgave them and gave up His very own son so that we could have salvation. That’s huge. Jesus, God himself in human form, died so that you could live with in Heaven.
Our God is AMAZING!!!
Our God is WONDERFUL!!!
Our God is RIGHTEOUS!!!
Our God is POWERFUL!!!
Our God LOVES you so much that He let Jesus DIE for you.
If Easter isn’t worth celebrating then I don’t know what is.
So to help me celebrate and thank God for blessing us with something that we don’t deserve here are 10 Bible verses on Celebration.

Now I want to share a few of the things I’m celebrating this month.
-I just signed my first major writing contract! I get to write the Preschool curriculum for The Gospel Project! The Gospel Project is written by Lifeway and is used by the majority of Southern Baptist Churches. Over the years I have learned from Lifeway’s curriculum, taught their curriculum, and now I get to write it! It really is a dream come true for me and puts me one step closer to my dream of writing full time!
-Brian and I have been married for over 11 months and will celebrate our anniversary in the Smokey Mountains! One whole week of relaxation with my hubby! We have a cabin reserved for us with a great view of Gatlinburg and a hot tub. I am having so much trouble being patient for this!
-A new link up is coming to Grace, Love, Life! If you are a blogger, then I invite you to join me each Tuesday for the Life is Lovely Link Up! I’ve teamed up with 4 other bloggers to bring you an awesome link up and I cannot wait to read everyone’s awesome new links.
Happy Easter! I pray that God blesses you this Sunday and everyday.
