Easter Sunday at the Park

I love Easter Sunday. I love reflecting on the fact that Christ would have died just for me. What a humbling thought. I love my friends and thought of giving my life for them seems like it comes with the territory, but my enemies? Only the love of God would make you even consider putting your life in jeopardy for people who don't even like you!

But that's what my Savior did. While I was yet in my sins and against Him, He stretched out His arms and died. Wow.

I try not to get caught up in the commercialism of the holiday, so to "celebrate" this day, we went to the park and hung out with the ducks. What a great variety they had and new ducklings at that. How cute!

At first I thought this was a duck. My daughter says because of it's neck length and size, it's a goose. I'm still learning the difference!! I believe it is a Greater White-fronted Goose.
