new life

Yesterday felt like spring. Sunny, warm(ish) and you could almost see Friday's snow melting away - a practically-perfect-in-every-way-day for Easter garden planting. Levi's been rather sniffly, crabby and clingy for the past couple of days so let's just say I especially relished this calm and quiet nap time activity.

Our Easter garden (inspired by Ann's) has become a treasured tradition (2010, 2011) and is always a constant and beautiful reminder of the path we take with Christ during this holy season; from the cross to the empty grave, from darkness to light, from old selves to new selves, from death to life. 

And speaking of new life, yesterday we got word that my Dad's post-treatment scans came back entirely free of cancer and his doctors are considering him "cured". He doesn't even have to do his last round of chemo. A huge weight has lifted from our family and we are praising God for His grace. I know many of you have been praying and I'm forever grateful. 


  1. Praise God! So happy to hear about your dad.

  2. I am so pleased to hear that news about your Dad.
