Today is a very special day as most everyone knows. It is the day we celebrate Christ's resurrection! To me, it is the most important day of the year!!!
This morning John went to Sunrise Service at church. I stayed home with John Luke since he was still snoozing but I got up and read my devotion and watched the beautiful sunrise from home. I think the older I get, the more I enjoy the peacefulness of early morning. At one time, I thought I would never say that! When John got home we gave John Luke his Easter basket. He was not interested in anything that was in it except the little truck. That's all he cares about right now; pushing trucks around. We then all went to Sunday School and Worship service. Grandmother Dean had fixed dinner for everyone so the family went there and I pigged out! We tryed to take some pictures but as you can see John Luke (Mr. Photogenic) (Ha! Ha!) would not cooperate. Stacey and Kady were home so it was nice to see them again. Kimberly was very sick and daddy stayed home to take care of her so they didn't make it.
When we got home John Luke was pooped so he went right to sleep and John and I played a little softball. John is playing softball with the church this year and he thinks he is supposed to hit like the pros so we have been practicing. If he had someone that could pitch it to him better he might be able to hit better! Anyway it's fun!
Then John's parents and his aunt, uncle, cousin, and a few of their friends from Chicago came over to visit. They all had fun on the Ranger riding around in the cow pasture! What a different world this is for them!
So... today was a great day. I am so thankful that Jesus died for me but even more thankful He arose!! What a wonderful hope we have in knowing Christ is Alive!!! I LOVE one of the hymns we sang in church this morning - "Because He lives I can face tomorrow, because He lives all fear is gone, because I know who holds the future, and life is worth the living just because He lives!" HAPPY EASTER!!!!
