our full life: week sixteen

This was week sixteen of twenty-fourteen.

It was Holy Week on the Christian Calendar (the week leading up to Easter). During Holy Week we remember the most important week of the most important person who ever lived: Jesus Christ. Take a moment to reflect on this short quote:

“There was never any love like the dying love of Jesus. It is tender and sweet. It serves. It loves even unto death. Jesus had nothing to gain from us by loving us. There was nothing in us to draw us to him. But he loved us still, while we were yet sinners. At the Last Supper, in the garden, at his betrayal, facing the Jewish leaders, before Pontius Pilate, being scourged, carrying his cross, being nailed to the wood, breathing his dying breath, forsaken by God – he loved us.

To the end.

To death.

Love shone best and brightest at Calvary.” – Kevin DeYoung

Here is Bret leading music with an amazing team at our Easter Sunrise Service at The Flower Fields. What a joy it was to sing praise to the King of love!

Yet another example of God’s amazing grace that I do not deserve. Also…I love my brothers’ face in this one!!!

  2. Hi Sarah! I am so glad you and Bret had a wonderful Easter…I wish Tom and I could have been there. But remember you both are always in our hearts and Jesus shows his love in so many ways! Thank you for the Joyful Blessings you have shared….There is a wonderful song by the Sidewalk Prophets called “He loved me Anyway”, it sure applies to your Easter message : ) Tom and I think of you and Bret often and always wish you the Best!
