it's Easter weekend and i've got my kids for a couple of days. the park was beautiful today and the birds sounded lovely. cheeseburgers afterwards were good...strangely, i've got a growing affection for big macs...yikes!
it is 'spring in full swing.' my spring fever has been at 'mid-level' this year and today i am feeling a little sad...not depressed, just a little sad.
so, i'm going to recount some stuff regarding Jesus that i've picked up over time that seems to be bouncing around in my head...today. happy happy everyone.
'me and Jesus, we gotta good thing going.' -jon
'you're the most gentle and persistent person i know.' -me (regarding Jesus)
'let the little children come to me and don't hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.' -jesus
'i thank you father, lord of heaven and earth, for you have hidden these things from the wise and learned and revealed them to little children. yes father, for this was your good pleasure.' -jesus
'then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in every one.' -george fox
'the easter story is not only about what happened to someone else; it's about what's happening to us - or can happen. it's about the experience of being lifted up and made new, when we ourselves didn't have the power to do it.' -days of healing days of joy (recovery literature for adult children)
