Christ the Lord is Risen Today
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!Sing, ye heav'ns, and earth reply, Alleluia!
Happy Easter! Easter is always a very reflective time to me. At church this morning, we stopped to remember those in our congregation who have died since last Easter. Lately, I've been very much missing my "Appie" who died just before Easter. Every Easter, we would dye eggs at her house, and she never seemed to mind that we left permanent splotches on her kitchen island. But the sermon today was about living in the present and remembering the fact that this moment is part of eternity. So I'm celebrating Easter with a sense of joy and real gratitude for the people I have in my live - and those who have been a part of my life and are now watching over from a distance.
We've had all kinds of fun ways to celebrate Easter this year. Jay got to experience his first Easter Egg Hunt, which his daycare held on the Capitol grounds. He wasn't too excited about hunting the eggs, but he did like putting eggs we found for him into his basket and opening them up to discover the treats inside. If only his mom would have let him eat the candy...
And yesterday we took him to get his portrait made in his new Easter outfit that LaLa gave him for his birthday. Cute as a button!
Okay, if that picture of him "dancing" in the center doesn't make you laugh, I don't know what will.
