He makes all things new

He's making me new.
Washing me in grace.
Fresh starts.
New dawns.

And I'm ready to hope again.
How can I not hope
when Jesus loves like this.
How can I resist
when He sees my struggle
and never once condemns.

I hold myself back,
unworthy of His holiness.
But He draws closer
and He covers me.
Always covers me.
His cloak about my shoulders.
Trading places.
My sin for His righteousness.

He paid for it all.
Spilling blood as the highest price.
And He knew what He was getting.
Knew my failures, 
knew my faults.
And still He says,
"I did it for the joy you are to me."

My heart cannot contain this love
can't even begin to understand it.
But I'm giving myself up to it.

I love this! Your children are so sweet. I'm excited to start fun traditions with my kids. I found this neat thing on Pinterest where you make a resurrection garden. You make this cute garden in a flower pot of the tomb and on Easter you move the stone door. It's so sweet and hands on for kids.
