Even with these pains, and a small headache, I am reminded... "This is nothing compared to what Christ went through for me." A quote my mother often said while going through chemo treatments.
I am humbled knowing that Good Friday and Easter are coming soon. Days that remind me of the ultimate sacrifice, and the ultimate power of our God. The confidence I have in my faith is sincerely rooted in these two days. First, Good Friday reminds me of the depth of Jesus' love for me. A love that is willing to die for me, even though I sin over and over. And second, Easter. The day that Christ defeated DEATH! Something that means more to me than I can even explain. Having lost my mother to death, experiencing the separation that death brings. I can't imagine dying myself and being separated from my Lord forever. I am beyond amazed that Christ has presented me with the opportunity for eternal LIFE, with him! Thanking Him today, for all he has done for me, and for the amazing relationship I can have with him. Praying for continued strength to make it through the remaining days if this Fast.
Because today was the first day of Pring Break, Bobby and I were both home from work. We went to SAMs Club this morning to stock up on large quantities of 'fast foods'.
For lunch I had an Asian chopped salad with a sesame ginger dressing. I got to spend a good long time doing some devotions.
For dinner we made some black bean and corn tacos with sautéed onions and peppers. We topped them with diced tomatoes, cilantro and avocado slices, and paired them with some homemade guac and tortilla chips.
