I was given a gift card to Sears at Christmas, and I used it today to buy myself an Easter dress! Okay, Mama and Dad might have paid for part of it. . .
It’s obviously been a long time since I got a new dress, because it’s not the fanciest thing I’ve ever owned, but I feel like Cinderella in her ball gown! 🙂 I think it’s the prettiest thing I’ve ever touched.
And Easter’s a whole week away.
It feels like forever.
But really, isn’t that a big part of what Easter is? Waiting for Jesus. Waiting for redemption. Waiting for the resurrection.
Easter is about new life, and things long hoped-for being placed in our hands as a gift, for today, and for forever.
