The holiday weekend was full of families gathering to eat, share stories and play games together. Great weather offered us the opportunity to get outside, shoot some hoops and go for a walk while also providing opportunity to connect with other neighbours who were taking advantage of the sunshine and warm temperatures.
The highlight of the weekend though for me was gathering together with other Christians reflecting on the sacrifice that Jesus made for each of us and the living hope that we have because of the resurrection.
Life can be filled with heartache and pain or even emptiness but Jesus gives us more to live for because life goes beyond the grave. He changes our heartache to joy and pain to peace because our purpose goes beyond the here and now giving us strength to rise above with a hope that does not cease because He lives!
