The extravagant love of God is what defines Easter. It always has and it always will. It is no more and no less than the celebration of sinless life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, so that you and I could be friends with God.
This year, a tangible and very special expression of this extravagance came to me in the form of an exquisite engagement ring, presented to me by my
husband-to-be on Palm Sunday!
For the last two weeks I have been gifted with the presence of Chad Johnson, right here in living colour! His trip has been a long time in coming, so I cannot tell you how refreshing and thrilling it was to finally have him here in New Zealand, no time zones, Skype screens, or unreliable internet connections with which to contend. To be able to introduce and expose him to my life and ministry here in Whangarei fed my soul and was such a blessing.
We enjoyed a bit of travel with friends, service in Jesus' name, good laughs, and great weather!
What is certain is our love for God and our love for each other.
Stay tuned for more photos and updates on life and ministry here in Whangarei as I prepare for the transition back to the USA in three months' time.
