With Easter approaching this weekend I am thinking about the sacrifice that was made for me. It is hard for me to comprehend that God gave his only Son to die for me.
When I look at Brooke and Hailey and think about how much I love them it can be pretty overwhelming. I would do absolutely anything for them. Anything. And I know all the other parents out there feel the same way about their children. If it came down to it, I would give my life for Brooke or Hailey. But to think about me choosing to give one of their lives to save someone else- no way. That is not going to happen.
But that is what God did for me. He gave his only Son to die. For me. It is hard for me to understand that God loved me so much that he was willing to let his Son die for me. Wow!
And that? Is why I am thankful this week. Happy Easter!
