‘A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;” Ecclesiastes 3:2

We are running out of time, son!!

$600 in bunnies, check.

13 minutes to the doors at Cook Children’s Hospital lock  check, check.

And 15 miles to go, checkmate.

We are never gonna make it,”I thought.”

But my son wanted to try, so we tried.

And as security was locking the door we rushed to the chapel (armed with fluffy Melissa and Doug bunnies) and thank God we landed safely on the plush little altars just in time.

It’s amazing how God can heal you while helping others. It’s been  exactly a month since I was in another hospital and chapel so similar to this one.

BunnyIt’s been a month since I buried my mother and cousin in the same week, so entering a hospital this soon, was the last thing on my mind. But it’s exactly what I needed to do.

Why?

Because the world doesn’t stop just because I’ve experienced a devastating tragedy. Time doesn’t slow down just for me..

God has a job for all us to do, and every moment of every day is a gift, so we must embrace each moment.

God always knew on Easter, a gal who loves giving back, would be helping others.  And God always knew I would stumble upon an organization with no bunnies in their bunny collection and be inclined to help.

And God always knew helping the organization collect bunnies would help me in the process. Why? Because God knows exactly what we need.

And while ‪#‎BunnyGate‬ is officially over, I can’t wait to help out the Bunnies and Bears organization again. What better way to celebrate Easter than by giving back to others?

Take it from me, you don’t need a lot of money..

You don’t need to know someone important to do some good,  you just need a willing heart to be used by God.

And next week I will tell everyone exactly how my mother died and how I helped collect bunnies for sick children in the hospital a month later.

So stay tuned.

Here are some fun photos from our Easter adventure
