A Bare Easter

This year, there were no colored eggs, candy filled baskets or maple glazed hams. This year, we bloomed right where we were planted. Mama's a little down at the moment, pinched nerve and all, so Easter became exactly what it should be, a gathering of those we love sans all the extras. An official grateful for what we do have kind of a day. 

We rose early and shuffled ourselves and the bare necessities into the car. We didn't stop till we found the mountains and a crystal clear stream perfect for fishing and picnicking.The afternoon was filled with moments of soft sunshine, laughter and all the wildness that I've come to expect from our three not-so-littles. With one child all grown up and no longer at home, I realize how precious these moments are that I have left with these three. Better not blink, they grow so fast.

At first, I was so sad not having an Easter filled with all the trimmings, but by days end I realized that this bare Easter was better than any chocolate bunny I'd ever had. We praised God under towering spruce and beside rolling waters, our hearts filled with all that Easter truly means. What could be better than that?

Good Friday, Oh Yes It Is

I had to pop in today to wish y'all a glorious Easter weekend! This is a wonderful time of year to be especially grateful for all God's blessings. Our God is so generous. He gave His only son as a sacrifice for us all. At our house, we are reflecting on the enormity of that gift and the miraculous nature of it all.
"He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 'The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again'"
            Luke 24: 6-7
