Well,I have no family pictures to share of our Easter Sunday. It was a very different Easter this year...kinda bittersweet. We had a sunrise service at church and regular services to follow...it came a huge storm,a down pour, while we were in Sunday School. My youngest daughter and her family went to church with her in laws. After service everyone went to their own home...no egg hunt for the young ones,no Easter dinner together....I didn't even dye eggs for my grands this year. I did manage to fix them a Easter goody,but it still sits on my table this morning. My eldest son is in the middle of a court battle for visitation with his children and he can't bring himself to do much celebrating without them. My youngest son works overnight and came to church straight from work,so he was ready for bed afterwards. I came home, had a bowl of beans and went to bed for a long restful nap. Easter isn't truly about the Easter Bunny,nor an egg hunt or even spending time with family. It is about Jesus Christ resurrecting ,conquering death,hell and the grave for whosoever will.....and Oh , what a reason for a celebration! So as a family we honored God the Father and his son Jesus, by coming together to worship through prayer,song and praise to the one who died,who arose and lives forever more...that makes for a wonderful Easter in my heart.
As part of our Sunrise service we erected crosses on the grounds of our church,as a symbol and a memorial of what Christ did for all mankind.

The older I get ...the more I realize things do not stay the same...times, things, holidays, people change....I don't do change well,but I do know that sometimes...changes are for the best!
