Our kids have so so so many questions about the Easter story. I definitely feel overwhelmed as a parent trying to explain things like sin, forgiveness, resurrection and redemption to my children, who are all under the age of 6. But somehow by the grace of God they are getting it.

As we spent our morning painting Easter crosses, I was reminded of how blessed we are.

Matthew 28:6   He is not here, for he has risen.
