Happy Easter! He is risen!
Our Easter Sunrise Service was indoors this morning. Not only was it in the 30s but the wind was blowing. I was very proud of Pastor for not braving the elements. We even canceled our Baptism Service that was supposed to happen in the river.
The teens did a great job cooking and preparing breakfast. And our morning service was a blessing. As always, Pastor preached a really good message.
This afternoon was spent sleeping, then some youth came over for games and fellowship. It was fun. We always enjoy fellowshipping with other likeminded families. These guys (I just realized all 7 of the youth were guys!) are very easy to have over. They drink lotsa lemonade and eat very little. The best part is that they include all of my children in the games. That can be hard when the children range in age from 7-20! Thanks guys!

It is heartbreaking to drive to church and see trees with eggs hanging from the branches and big blowup bunnies in the yards. Easter means so much to the born again Christian, so it's painful to watch the commercialization of it.

This week is going to be so busy that I don't want today to end. Time to put my faith to action and trust God to get me through it.

Many blessings ~ Kathie
