Today is one of my favourite days of the year.
The essence of hope is in all that we do.
From the church celebratory service to the family easter meal.
All are filled with joy.
This is the day Jesus conquered the grave.
Death has no victory.
The empty tomb.
I love this celebration as it reminds me of the promise.
The promise of eternal life.
I never knew how much I needed this promise until four years ago.
When death stole my beautiful daughter from me.
When loss broke my heart into millions of pieces.
It is because of the promise we celebrate today that I can go on.
The hope of this gift that keeps the blood rushing through my veins.
I am only separated from Livvy by this lifetime.
Eternity is ours to have together.
One day forever will be ours.
