Amazing Grace

I've been thinking about Easter and the movie the Passion of Christ. I am overwhelmed whenever I think of the incredible love that God has for us. To send His one and only Son, to die such a horrific death...for me. Can one even put into words what that kind of love means? It speaks to me at such depths, I can't even begin to explain it. It moves me to such great emotions. Think about it, "While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." That anyone would think so highly of utterly amazing.

Grace asked me why all of my blogs talk about God. I explained that I talk about her as well, to which she replied, "Yeah, and God." How can she understand that I can no more separate my life from God than I can stop breathing. I hope someday, she will understand completely. That is my prayer for her this Easter, that she will know the depth of God's love for her.

In Christ Alone,

I just read your comment about the popcorn on Beth Moore's blog--how adorable! I have been praying for your little Grace. I have suffered from varying degrees of colitis all through my life, so I can relate. Glad she is doing so much better.

That is a beautiful prayer for Grace. The Passion of The Christ is a very hard movie for me to watch. But it is so good and I imagine it is as close to being real as a movie about Christ's crucifixion can be. My husband and I watched it last year on Good Friday. I love the end! My favorite scene? The one where Jesus and Mary can sense each other's presence while he is in the handcuffs. Makes me cry every time.

I read your comment on the Living Proof blog and just had to let you know that I loved your story about popcorn. I read it out loud to my husband and we thought it was the cutest thing. Thanks for sharing.
