Sorry most of my posts have been kinda short, boring ones, i've just not been very creative lately! i am just gonna post random stuffff.
ummmmm...let me see!
First of all, i just wanted to let you know that my bestest, bestest friend in the world is Emmy <3 and that you should go follow her blog, because it is amazinggggggg!
she is the bestest, loveliest friend any one could ever have, and she has always been there for me ever since i met her over blogging ; ) it's been super cool meeting sooo many awesome poeple over blogger!
next, i knowwwww i have not done a "Handful of Sonflowers Girl chat" post in a long while, so i decided i needed to do one...sorry guys.
sooooo..on Easter, we watched the final episode of "The Bible", so this post is kinda inspired from that....
Well, like on Sunday, we were just watching the part in the "The Passion" (Which is what the final episode was called) and it was showing how Jesus had been beaten so bad, to where He didn't even look the same, and then they nailed Him on the cross, to die for us.
During that part, i had to leave the room to go to the bathroom, and when i was washing my hands, i looked in the mirror at myself. After seeing what Jesus had looked like after being beaten, and hurt sooo badly, i looked like so perfect (Trust me, by perfect, i don't mean no pimples!) i mean like, i wasn't bleeding all over my body, and dying like Jesus was.
And, i thought of how blessed that i am. How i am in such a comfortable home, and have such a wonderful family, and i get to take Ballet at a wonderful Academy with a wonderful teacher, and yet i think that i still have things to complain about.
I am a sinner, that sins against God each and every day, and so i deserve nothing, yet God still blesses me with so much. And He, the one who created us, and who is perfect, and has never, ever sinned, sent His only son to die on the cross for our sins. When i am the one who deserves to be on the cross, because i am the one who sins each and every day!
"He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead
to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed." -1 Peter 2:24
I just think that it is soooo amazing that Jesus did this for us, and that He still loves us no matter how many times we sin against Him!
I hope you guys had fun on Easter!!!
Have a happy, happy week!
