Remember Everyday

Kelly & Molly at LOG #88

It’s almost here! EASTER! I love Easter. It’s always been one of my favorite holidays. Not so much the Easter bunny, hunting for eggs, the messy dying of eggs, or anything of that sort. I love the story of Jesus. I love Holy Week. I love the freedom and redemption we get from the power of Christ’s resurrection. For those of you that know me, picture me at my most excited, multiply that by ten and you get me the week of Easter.

What most people don’t know about me is that I grew up Catholic. Two of my favorite parts of being Catholic at Easter time were Palm Sunday and the Stations of the Cross. On Palm Sunday, with palm branches waved into the air to signal Jesus’s arrival into Jerusalem; then the Stations of the Cross walking you through the journey Jesus took to the cross. It was always the time of year that I connected the most to God as a young Christian. The time where I remembered the sacrifice Jesus made to forgive us of our sins and the love that He pours out for us everyday because of that sacrifice.

Why can’t it be like that every day? Why can’t I remember the love that Jesus has for us everyday? There are moments and times that become so overwhelming that I can’t see Jesus and the love He has given. In knowing some of you, I know you do too. We live LOG to LOG, Sunday to Sunday, Easter to Easter. In the in between times we can become complacent. We can become Judas and Peter – betraying and denying the love that we know exists for us in the crucifixion and redemption of Jesus.

My prayer for you is that you remember everyday the love given to us because of this sacrifice. I pray that instead of living LOG to LOG you are living hour to hour or minute to minute. I pray that you find love in the little things. I pray that His love finds you in everything you do.
