Normally I make a playlist on Sunday but because today is Easter I thought I would make an exception.
I had such a fun day hanging out and getting to know my in-laws better. I should really start calling them my family.
It is so interesting to me because I’m a closed off person, who shies away in groups, is not good at the touchy feely thing, and my parents had more of a hands off I trust you approach to parenting while David’s family has more restrictions… Not that either are bad it is just so night and day compared to what I am used to. David’s family is a big group of loving,hugging, pure folk, they are more traditional and a rare find. While my family is more of a blended hodge podge of crazy. All of us may not hug as freeing and say the exact words I love you but we all know it’s there.
The funny thing is that David’s family has always accepted and loved me because they are that kind of good people but I take things slow and it takes me awhile to warm up to people and here I am immersed in this loving family and I can’t help feel overwhelmed but in a good way. This was only the fourth time I have met them in the four years David and I have been together and I’m slowly but surely breaking free from my shell. I know that there is no need for me to be this way but it’s just the way I am. I’m shy and reserved until I get used to you and then I start to show my true (sometimes unpleasant but mostly awesome colors).
We went to church, hung out with some cute baby goats (my husband’s family has a goat farm…pretty cool), and ate some good homemade cooking.
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter as well and to remind us all of what Easter is I’m good my to leave off with a scripture.
“As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside privately and told them what was going to happen to him. “Listen,” he said, “we’re going up to Jerusalem, where the Son of Man will be betrayed to the leading priests and the teachers of religious law. They will sentence him to die. Then they will hand him over to the Romans to be mocked, flogged with a whip, and crucified. But on the third day he will be raised from the dead.” (Matthew 20:17-19 NLT)
