// Why I’m Not Celebrating Easter //

I've celebrated Resurrection Sunday (aka Easter) my whole life. When I was younger I loved getting candy each year in a cute lil' basket, and as I got older I saw the beautiful meaning behind Easter - Christ dying for me to set me free.

// Undone //

When you cried out from the garden, let Your will be done, not mine. When You took the weight of my mistakes, so I don’t have to fight ’em. Now I let the sun rise on every scar and every sign, of when You took this bruised and dying soul and breathed it back to … Continue reading // Undone //
