As I Prepare for Easter
This week I have been on Spring break from school. Due to my husband’s job, we stayed in country which was a perfect fit for me and the kids. It also gave me time to regroup since we are nearing the end of the third quarter. Spring break started with me feeling angry, disillusioned, and weary. Sleep, time with God, crocheting and time with friends were much needed. As the week went on, I found myself slowly laying things at the feet of the cross- my unmet expectations, my insecurities, my wanting to control situations, and my weariness. I told God my heart was not ready for Easter. Then I was reminded that whether or not we are ready for God, He is always ready for us. Our only requirement is that we come as we are-what a scary thought but also a healing one. This week as I have come to God, I have been reminded of these things.
