As a parent I'm learning that holidays hold a whole new meaning. Everett's 2nd holiday was Easter. We celebrated it by giving his mom a card, a gift, and some candy. He also got a new outfit. He doesn't understand anything about anything right now (duh, he's only 6 weeks old), but it got me wondering how I'm going to make each holiday with him special. I want him to understand the true meaning of each one. Church was the highlight of our day today, we got him to service and he had a great nap. I pray that as he gets older he understands that although the candy is good and the bunny is cute, it's Christ's Resurrection that deserves the celebration. This is just one more responsibility I'm realizing that I have. One I greatly accept. I can't wait to balance and explain Christmas. lol. If your wondering if he got to hunt Easter eggs, remember he's only 6 weeks old. Maybe next year (or two). Have a great Easter and enjoy it with your family, I am!
My name is James Burgess. I have a beautiful wife of a little over 8 years named Lisa and a baby on the way. We are both busy with work and school but find as much time as we can to be involved in church and hang out with our great friends. I hope the things you read here will inspire, educate, or just entertain!!
