I believe in Christ

I am a Christian.
This Easter season I wanted to list just 5 reasons I'm grateful for my Savior:

1- Because when I get annoyed with my husband, I can be forgiven. I hate that I am weak enough to ever feel annoyed with him. But I would hate it even more if I were never forgiven for this human folly.

2- Because once when I just didn't feel I could love a person, it came to me while I was doing the dishes, they are a child of God and there are actually many reasons to love them. I know I didn't think of that on my own.

3- Because sometimes, it's hard to do my job (be a mom), and then I remember whose children they really are and it's not so hard. God doesn't want me to fail in this even more than I don't want to fail...so...He's always around to help out when I need it.

4- Because I say and do dumb things all the time…and through my Savior, I still feel reasonably good about who I am.

5- Because I admire artists, and recently realized what a great artist Jesus is: "van Gogh wrote..."I tell you the more I think, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people."
