This Easter I did something different, rather than letting the busyness of preparation for today fill my time, I spent time with family and friends. Did I make the "break basket" to surprise my family today at dinner? No. Did I manage to prepare a special treat? No. BUT...I did enjoy time catching up with friends. I did enjoy a 3+ mile walk for a few days in a row. I did bake and frost cookies with daughter. I spent time with my parents.
One lesson I've learned, all the stuff, baked goods, and things will never replace the time spent and memories made with those we love and care about. So rather than stress on what I didn't do, I'm celebrating the new beginning of this year. It's not about the fancy break basket or treats, it's about Jesus sacrifice on the cross and resurrection this morning. It's Easter, a time to celebrate and enjoy life, love, family, and friends.
I hope you will do the same today! To share a snip-it of how God worked through social media over the weekend, check out how many people viewed, shared, and loved on Heidi...21 years later.
Since Friday, the posters and flyers on just the Where's Heidi? page have been viewed almost 17,000 times as of 7 p.m., with 213 actual shares of the posters, and over 4,000 views just on Sean Kirst article remembering Heidi. That's over 20,000 views and shares of #HopeHeidiAllen#HeidiAllen
This doesn't count the views and shares on my personal page or your pages - may God use one of these views or shares to bring Heidi home. Thank you and again, HAPPY EASTER!
Thank you for your outpouring of love, support, and encouragement the past 21 years, and especially this weekend.
Have a wonderful day and
