I was so fortunate that I had great parents. Both my Daddy and Mother were people that I knew loved me no matter what. I was a Daddy's girl and I knew that there was nothing that I could do that would cause him to turn his back on me. As I have grown into an adult, I know that because I had a Daddy like mine, it was easy to turn to my Heavenly Father. I knew there were rules that were to be followed and I also knew that there would be consequences to not following the rules. Just like there are consequences to not following the Word of God. I am so glad that that Jesus loves me with all my short comings and He will never turn me away.
Last night, I was thinking about Easter when I was young and how we would always get a new outfit, Easter basket, full of goodies and then after church we would come home and we would have a family dinner. My Grandmother would always make her famous peach or cherry cobbler. My mother would also make her famous deviled eggs. What a fun time it would be. My Daddy would hide the eggs again that we had gotten and candy eggs that my Mother would have bought.
