Happy Easter

Blog 357:  Easter Reflections

         Easter, like all Holidays, make you think of not only what God has done for us, but about family and friends, about what you are blessed with, about being grateful.  God gave his only son for us.  He died alone, then rose again, into salvation.  We are truly blessed, for all who believe.

            Holidays are a joyous time.  Church has a special meaning.  This is a time to be at peace, to pray, to think, to relax, and to enjoy the fellowship.  The scriptures tell us the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection.  Sometimes, different scriptures tell us a subtly different version.  But the meaning is the same.  He died so we could be saved.  Hallelujah!

            He is gone.  He has risen.  He is with us always.  Alleluia!

            It was a good feeling to be in church today.  It was a good feeling to be greeted by people who we haven’t seen for a while.  It is a good feeling to have people tell us that they were glad to see us.  The greetings were heart-felt ad sincere.  We have been missing this in our lives and now I feel that it’s time to have it again.  It’s time to be part of our church family.

            Today we enjoyed Easter with Micah, Jacob, Amber, Caden and Tyler.  Next weekend, we continue our family celebration when Sara, Jake and Makenzie come home. 

            We had a fantastic ham dinner, with Amber’s potato casserole and Micah’s green bean casserole.  Yesterday was hubby’s birthday and today was Jacob’s birthday, and Amber made a birthday dessert, apple crisp.   Hubby did have a Dairy Queen Ice Cream birthday cake last night!

            The boys did some target shooting.  The girls joined in.  Pistol shooting is different than 22 rifle shooting, and I have to figure out why I am shooting high, low, and to the left!  Geez!

We had an Easter egg hunt.  Pop, where did you hide all of them?

            It is going to be great to have the whole family together next weekend! I can’t wait!

Sara, Jake and Makenzie, we miss you!

The coins on thecoffee table, do they happen to be there or do they have a significant meaning?

Thanks for visiting.

Hi Ann, the coins are just the "treat" that was inside the plastic eggs. We didn't want to give Caden candy in all the eggs. We thought it would be special for him to have some coins and put them in his bank.

thanks for asking. Brenda
