It’s tough to truly describe how important Christ’s death and resurrection are to the Christian faith. Because Jesus died for our sins, we have the opportunity to live with Him in eternity if we obey His commands. With that said, celebrating Resurrection Sunday was a very blessed day!
Jimmy and I headed to church and the morning and had my dad (and my parents’ dogs) over for lunch afterwards. We grilled, chilled, and played with the dogs!
My mom and sister went to Florida to visit my great aunt and my brother and sister-in-law were with her family, so our house wasn’t as full as last year. Similar to last year, though, I had to pet sit. I watched a sweet bulldog and a bengal cat.
It was really nice not to stress out over preparing a big meal since it was just Jimmy, my dad, and me. I felt like I could really keep my focus where it should be. That’s always a nice thing 🙂
It was lovely to catch up with my dad and enjoy the sunny 70 degree weather. My dad asked if he could bring anything to lunch and I asked him to bring the Sunday paper. When I lived with my parents, it was mine and my dad’s ritual to read the Sunday paper together, so it was lovely and so special to do that again!
After spending a relaxing afternoon together, we went to the evening church service and closed out a wonderful Resurrection Sunday! Typing up this post made me thankful all over again for Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.
I hope everyone had a great Resurrection Sunday!
