Happy Easter! My mother in law sent me this obit(click on picture to enlarge and read) and it struck me in a very profound way. Jesus' death and resurrection is the cornerstone to my faith and this picture painted a very real picture of his sacrifice. I am so thankful he was not selfish, as I am. I am so thankful that he was courageous, unlike me. I am so thankful his love abounds, unlike mine. I plan to watch the Passion this weekend with my family. This isn't a choice we are making without much deliberation and prayer as we have a 7 and 9 year old. We feel confident we will be able to discern whether or not they will watch the movie entirely or the less graphic portions. More than anything I want my children to know the profound impact of this weekend's significance and the gift Jesus gave us all on the cross.
