Happy Easter

Happy and Blessed Easter everyone. This Easter is especially significant for me and the girls. While we celebrate our risen Lord, and new beginnings, we are starting our new life here. While at my lowest, darkest days, I have felt God's strength, blessings and guidance the most. When things were the worst, I felt God's love the most. I have had so many miracles in my life in the last few weeks, from unimaginable generosity of total strangers, amazing people coming into my life to help me, a friend finding me after 21 years and many prayers said for me and answered. I realize that many in the same situation may feel abandoned by God and/or friends/family, but my faith is strengthened and renewed. It is clearer than ever how much I am loved by so many and God has made his presence known. My life use to be a struggle and hard, now I have let go and let God take control. For the first time in a long time, our needs are met easily, swiftly and completely. Thanks to everyone who has prayed for us, helped us, and/or offered support.

Johanna,
I love your scrapbooking style - and I visit your blog often, though I dont always leave a comment. I also watch the videos on Leah website ... and I really, really loved those LifeStyle projects ... so sad to see them end. At any rate, hard times come to us all, and our strength to get through them can only be found in our faith. Though I do not know the cause of your current hardship, I am glad to hear things are getting better and will continue to send positive thoughts your way.
All my best.
