Rejoicing in the Hope

This Easter we "celebrated" the resurrection in a way we've never done before.

We spread the ashes of 3 of Chuck's grandparents into Lake Travis, rejoicing that we will be reunited when the Resurrection of Believers comes.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-17
Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

First we met up at Chuck's Aunt Binnie's house for lunch and let the kids get the wiggles out.



My guys were so excited to see Lacey! We've missed her since her one year run at UTSA.

Going out to the dock.

Binnie and Yvonne (Chuck's mom) The ashes Binnie is holding is both of their parents.

While it was emotional, you can tell that our kids weren't quite old enough to "get it." And in a way that kept things from being too sad. While we miss them, we're thankful for the hope we have in Jesus that we WILL be with them again.
