Your first Easter in Heaven...

What must Easter be like in Heaven?


When I close my eyes and think about you celebrating your first Easter in Heaven, I envision you with your arms raised, just like you are doing in this picture taken on Easter Sunday 2010, singing the praises of our almighty God.   You enjoyed the worship music in church, but only when you were in the front row.  I envision you right up in front, close to Jesus. 

But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."  Luke 18:16

This season, not unlike every day, is so very very difficult without you.  Daddy and I, we cried hard today when we discovered a bag of treasures that you picked out last year to give to the kids on Easter.  You wanted to buy out the store, and we let you, at ninety percent off we couldn't say no to you;).

We are so proud of you Lucy girl, your life here on earth was remarkable, and now you get to live the most glorious life...a life without suffering!

What a wonderful mental picture to envision Lucy all-out worshiping in heaven - actually able to SEE, touch, and experience the object of her worship. Happy Easter Lucy!! He is risen, just as He said.
