We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

(A guest post by Dave...his thoughts on today)

Imagine if you can, 
walking, working, laughing learning 
and daily investing three plus years of your life in the life of another. 
Coming to where you are now willing to believe 
that the person you are with actually is the long awaited Messiah.  
Then you watch him die a horrible death, 
rejected by the religious leaders of your time 
and crucified by the enemy you hoped he would defeat!  

Now you wait in defeat, wondering what to do next? 
Will the Jewish leaders come for you next?  
Will you ever trust someone again like you did trust Jesus? 
What was the last three years really about?  
What a waste. 
We know that Sunday is coming 
and we know the "rest of the story" 
but the disciples didn't. 

Try to put yourself in their shoes (sandals) today. 
If you get somewhat close to their despair 
tomorrow will take on a whole new meaning for you. 
Have a great Easter.
