I’m thankful for the freedom I experience to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Resurrection Day (as I like to call it) was cold here, but we were still able to enjoy the beautiful blossoms on the trees and bushes. This always reminds me of the new life we can have in Christ.We were thankful to be invited to Easter dinner at someone’s house. There were 22 adults and lots of kids of various ages. Everyone brought different dishes of food, which means lots of good food! Chris and Debbie (sitting across from each other in this picture) invited all of us to their home. They had tables set up throughout the house for people to eat at. Debbie and I are in the same Bible study, so she invited our whole group to join them, along with some others. Sweet!
Later in the afternoon, the older kids hid eggs so the younger ones could hunt them. There were only 3 young kids, so the older ones went around to “help” the younger ones.Many of the eggs were plastic with candy in them. Ethan would find them and before putting them in the basket, he would open the egg and drop the candy into the basket. Many of you know that we still don’t allow him to eat chocolate or candy, so the candy meant absolutely nothing to him. I know that will change one day, but hopefully not too much.What Ethan really cared about and wanted to do was to play football with the bigger boys. He cared more about that than finding the eggs.
