What a blessed weekend we had leading up to this Resurrection Day. Yesterday we dyed eggs and had the traditional pink and blue fingers to match our Sunday clothes this morning. Woke up to a big breakfast and lots of running around getting everyone into their Easter duds. The boys are actually asking to wear button up shirts and ties to church now which is so much fun! After service Maurice pulled out the grill and made burgers and his famous beef filled baked beans. Yummy. I made carrot cake cupcakes and we spent the day napping and hanging out outside. We hid eggs for the kids but Tori, Tres and Jordan were only interested in the money egg. (Jordan found it) They were cracking me up in their prep for looking for the egg. Doing stretches and warming up for the dash. LOL Tonight we had communion together and had a great discussion on Christ and Calvary. So many cute questions from Natalie and Kobe. Maurice was reading scripture and as we took the bread Kobe said, “Your eating Jesus!” Nat did a great job of explaining about sin and how Christ blood erases our sin. She went over all of Kobe’s recent sins and how grateful he should be of the cross. I am gratefull for the laughter, Tori’s big hugs, love and lazy days.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
