Waiting

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.

  2. Thank you for posting this Hanna, it was wonderful! Ooo, like Cinderella in her ball gown? I bet your dress is absolutely beautiful 🙂 . Getting new dresses is so fun, isn’t it?

    1. Yes, Ariel came into our room and told me, and the only reasonable reaction to news like that, was to dramatically fall backwards on the bed, and tell everyone I fainted with excitement! 🙂 😉 😛 ~Sky
