I think that Easter will forever be intertwined in my memory with Clara's own miraculous resurrection last year. Never have I felt so profoundly just a bit of the suffering God must have felt as he watched His only son lose his life. We are thankful that Clara was given some more time here on earth with us, and pray that one day we'll all be reunited in heaven.
So we're thankful for a Lord who shouldered the pain of our failures and weaknesses and thankful for a little girl who makes us want to live each day a little more like him. Hope we're making You proud, Jesus.
Here are some of the images! Enjoy!
Clara's not QUITE big enough to understand the art of Easter Egg Dyeing, but she can watch from a distance...
They turned out well! Clara will learn from the best, someday.
How precious is this sweater with a chick on it? (And the girl in it)
A basket for Easter morning...
Well, two actually (but one just had empty eggs. Too little for candy!)
Clara had fun checking out
And after her nap, we got all dolled up and found some grass for Easter egg hunting.
The jacket was needed up in the mountains, but I got a few shots without it too.
Even Rufus got festive with a dandelion in his collar.
On Monday, the boys had gone back to work but Sweet Mama and I took Clara to the park for a little while. This girl needs lots of wide open spaces.
Thanks Be To God.
