Easter 2016

Today is the celebration of the greatest day in history.  It's Easter, y'all.

You know - most people celebrate a person's life.  And while Jesus' life was pretty special, it's His DEATH and then RESURRECTION that we really celebrate.  I'm so thankful that He took my place on that cross to pay the debt for my sins.  No greater gift.  

My parents came up for the day.  Davis was out of town so Kristi came on over too, and we all went to church together.  I taught our 3 year olds through 1st graders, and while I missed being able to worship with my family, today was an extra-special day to get to teach our kids about Jesus!

After lunch at Fatz (because the restaurant that we TRIED to go to was closed), we all went back to our house to see if the Easter bunny had come.  He did not disappoint. 

New swimsuits, sunglasses, water bottles, note pads, bubbles and of course some candy (or yogurt packs)!   We did a little indoor easter egg hunting, and then stepped outside to take a few quick pictures. 





Our family sure has grown in the past few years.  Our girls have gotten so big, not to mention that we have TWO of them.  I sure do love our family and thank God for them daily.  Here's what our Easter has looked like the past few years: 


Happy, happy Easter! 

He is Risen!!

  1. Hello Kelly and Kevin. I am also a Pastor from Mumbai, India and I am blessed and feel privileged and honored to know you and get connected with you because of who you are in the Lord Jesus Christ and the Pastoral ministry which you have. I am blessed to go through your post which speaks of your adoption journey and how the Lord blessed you with two children. I have been in the Pastoral ministry for last 36 yrs in this great city of Mumbai, India and I love to get connected with the people of God around the globe to be encouraged, strengthen and praying for one another. The city of Mumbai has over 20 million people and half of the people live in the slums. This city is a city of great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We also encourage young and the adults from the west to come to MUMBAI to work with us during their vacation time. We would love to have your young people come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time. I am sure they will have a life changing experience. God willing I will be in the States and I will be so happy to stop by your place and meet you and share with you about our ministry in Mumbai. Looking forward to hear f rom you very soon. God's richest blessings on you, your family and friends and also wishing you a blessed and a Christ centered rest of the year 2016.
