POTW: New Beginnings

Dan and Holly

    Easter Sunday is all about Christ’s love for us, and all about the awesome salvation story of His resurrection.  It’s about new beginnings.  A couple week’s ago, Holly really started getting irritated with wearing hats all the time and so she decided that Easter Sunday was going to be her day to stop covering her head… her new beginning.  It hasn’t been easy for her; she said earlier that she felt like she had been stripped of all her dignity, but I see it differently.  She looks beautiful to me.  She looks like a survivor… a survivor who is moving on with life.
