An Easter to Remember

It was an excellent Easter Sunday. Although I love chocolate, this was not a day focused on the delicious decapitation of chocolate bunnies.

Mmmmmm.... chocolate.

It was a great day because we were able to spend it with family: aunts, uncles, parents, grandparents, nieces. A nephew who drove to the gathering from college. Another nephew only a few months old who shared toothless smiles of joy.

It was an opportunity to worship in a country church. The cozy wooden pews were filled with families. We sat next to the woman who was the soloist at our wedding. We sang traditional hymns, played by the organist from our wedding. Our youngest happily went to children’s church midway through the service. His older brother sat next to his grandmother and contentedly colored. The church pastor, speaking with his calm demeanor and slight German accent, provided a reassuring sermon. It was a celebration of Christ’s resurrection.

Amen.

    Missed you in our pews, but I’m happy for the heritage of happy gatherings that include God – on both sides of your family!

    • Next year it’ll be Easter in Sussex. It’s definitely good to have the same religious perspective on both sides of the family.
