Today is your first Easter! Your outfit is picked out(and adorable of course), your basket is filled, and you have already been on your first egg hunt. You only got one egg, but that’s okay, there is always next year. Last night, we got to spend time with some of your family who loves you so much, and today, you will see even more family. Everyone is so crazy about you sweet boy.
I am writing this to you to explain though that as fun as Easter is, it’s not all about egg hunts and baskets. I pray everyday that one day, hopefully in the next few years, you will come to know Jesus. Jesus is the real reason that we celebrate today. A long time ago, He died for you(and for me and Daddy) and then, just like he promised, he rose again to bring us eternal life. Because of Jesus, we are promised that one day we will be able to live with Him in Heaven! Isn’t that awesome!!??
I know right now you don’t quite understand all of this. You probably won’t next Easter either. That won’t stop me from telling you though, not just on Easter, but all of the time. Jesus loves you, bud. He loves you more than your Daddy and I love you, and that’s a whole lot! I can’t wait until you realize the greatness of that love all for yourself.
I hope your day today is filled with lots of family kisses and brightly colored eggs. I love you, Mama
