Happy Easter!

We went to Easter service on Good Friday because Brad had to work today. We were actually at a picnic in the afternoon and had to hurry home and clean up a bit before heading off to the service. Wilson snapped a picture of Brad and I......and we snapped a picture of them too. Our church had Easter egg hunts for each age group, so the boys brought their buckets from Aunt Casey with them.
The Easter service was really well done. Our praise team sang some well-known songs about the way our world lives life... and then blended that story into a telling of the Easter story using video and song. This was the last song they sang before Pastor came to speak... (its a tear-jerker)



Of course, Pastor gave an invitation - in the service we attended, he said 30+ people gave their lives to Jesus. After his talk, we sang some praise songs to celebrate the Victory we have in Jesus. It was really a wonderful celebration!

This morning, the boys and I went back to church while Brad went to work. I got to volunteer with the 3-year-olds for the first service and then was a greeter for the second service. There were a lot of 'first-timers' and quite a few, 'we haven't been here in awhile' folks. I hope each person that attended the services received a special blessing.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead," 1 Peter 1:3
