Busy Busy

So I have so much to catch up on, including the rest of Easter and MY HALF MARATHON! Yes! I ran my half marathon...and truth be told...for my first one...I kind of kicked @$$ :)

But we started "science camp" this week and life is crazy so until the weekend, or maybe April 29th (the day of the science TAKS) this is about all the time I've got. But to sum up my week here is a quote that wraps it all into one great package with a cute pink bow on top...

The only people who find what they are looking for in life are the fault finders. ~Foster's Law

I don't know who Foster is, but he is definitely on to something!

Happy Easter

Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint.
Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.”
The women ran quickly from the tomb. They were very frightened but also filled with great joy, and they rushed to give the disciples the angel’s message. And as they went, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they ran to him, grasped his feet, and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there.” Matthew 28:1-11

I have a very vivid image from the summer before entering 4th grade, at church camp, we sang this song...

He paid a debt he did not owe,
I owed a debt I could not pay,
I needed someone to wash my sins away
Christ Jesus paid a debt that I could never pay.
It was the first time I truly understood what Christ did for me. I realized that I could not repay that debt and that I didn't need to worry because Christ had already come in to pay it for me. Such a simple song, but those words made such an impact. I sang those words with all my heart and for the first time, I meant them and understood them.
Thank you, Lord, for paying my debt that I could never pay.
