our full life: week thirteen

This post is a couple days late. Sorry everybody…but I think Easter is as good an excuse as any! Right? Right.

I got to hang out with this fine young lad. He’s super quiet in group settings, but get him alone watching Shark Tale and HE. WON’T. STOP. TALKING. So cute! mac

Made a quick coffee run and we were made 2 extra drinks by accident! Our office thanks you, Starbucks.coffee run

I took a risk and wore a jean jacket this week. The same Levi’s jean jacket I got for $50 my freshman year of high school. It was cool back then, and I think they’re making a comeback now.jean jacket

I made an apple pie again. It’s Bret’s favorite and he asked me to make it for his birthday dessert. My pleasure, sweets!pie

My husband really doesn’t enjoy celebrating his birthday. It just doesn’t appeal to him. However, when I offered an idea of pizza and game night with our 2 best friends…he was SO excited! These two beautiful people are more than we deserve and we had a blast celebrating together! Love you Coopers!besties

The highlight of my week was the Good Friday service at church. Celebrating the Cross of Christ and the radical free gift of grace that Jesus gives. AMAZING! We watched the movie The Passion of The Christ that night (I had never seen it before, but Bret had) and I have a new appreciation and visual sense of what Jesus endured to satisfy the penalty of our sin.

We are smiling because we are forgiven! God is so so good.car rides

I made something this week…can you guess what I made? Recipe coming soon.scone aftermath

My amazingly talented husband and worship team led the Easter Sunrise Service for The Fields at The Flower Fields! It was a beautiful celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus. He is risen…He is risen indeed! sunrise

We celebrated Easter at Bret’s parents home as a whole family. We feasted, we relaxed, we laughed, and we loved on our Little Lucy all day. Here she is looking at her new bubble set with Mama and Papa.bubbles

And at the very end of the night, we sang Happy Birthday to the most wonderful man and best friend in the whole world. I love you, my Bret, and I am so glad you were brought into this world to worship Jesus and bring so much joy to everyone you meet. brets bdayPB cake

That’s all friends. I hope you had a Happy Easter and you are beginning to enjoy this beautiful spring God is giving us. How was your week? Was was your highlight? I’d love to hear all about it.

  1. What a beautiful blog !!! you know pretty much how my Easter went….lol, mom was so glad to have all her children/grandbaby there to celebrate the Beautiful Gift we received from our Heavenly Father. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
    my day was even more special !! because of the other Beautiful Gift I received from My Heavenly Father, 27 years ago, the day my beautiful baby boy was born !!!!!
    I am truly a blessed daughter of Christ and Mother of Bret Madison Theis jr.
