Happy Easter Sunday! What a wonderful holiday — spring flowers sprout up, warm sunshine, fun times with family, and most importantly, there is the reminder of what Jesus did for us on the cross and the miraculous way he saved us. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Never does John 3:16 hit me harder than on this day of celebrating His resurrection. I’m so grateful to Him, and today I’m feeling especially HAPPY! Which made me think about this lovely tag that my blogger buddy Sarah from Forever Aspiring Writer invited me to join! If you haven’t visited her blog, you should. She writes fabulous book, movie, and music reviews! Thanks so much to Sarah for tagging me — here I go.
Some SONGS that make you happy:
Mostly every song makes me happy–I just love music! Off the top of my head, I choose Oceans by Hillsong United, Purpose by Justin Bieber (my sister said I had no shame for this pick…LOL), NO by Meghan Trainor, and Break Up in a Small Town by Sam Hunt.
Some BOOKS that make you happy:
This is impossible! Prepare to be bombarded. The Storm Siren Trilogy by Mary Weber. Divergent by Veronica Roth. Alaskan Courage series by Dani Pettrey. Fireflies in December by Jennifer Erin Valent.
