Happy Easter! We have much to celebrate. He is risen!
Last night we attended the Saturday night Easter service at our church. Afterwards we helped out as a family and enjoyed a church meal together. This morning, our family gathered for a devotional c celebrating our risen King.
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 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.’ ” Then they remembered his words.
Afterwards, the kids enjoyed hunting for eggs in the backyard.
After the egg hunt, we dyed eggs.
My Mom and Aunt Tanya came over for Easter dinner. They are spending the night.
