We celebrated Easter today. Being a Christian, this is one of the most important days of the year. Our Savior rose from the dead over two thousand years ago and lives today. One day we will see Him again. Easter isn’t about colored eggs, the Easter bunny or baskets of candy. Those are fun, but it’s not what Easter is all about. It’s about a risen Savior who came to earth to live and He died on the cross for every one of us in the world. He loves us that much. He arose from the dead and sits at the right hand of God, His Father, and one day He will come again to gather his church and judge us all. Our church choir sang an amazing cantata today and it was wonderful to be in church this morning. Wish you could have heard it.
We had a family get together today also. I always enjoy having family around. We took pictures.
Two of our three children were here. Am I getting shorter or are my children still growing?
Three of our grandchildren and our daughter-in-love were here.
This is our daughter and her family. Shoes were optional. Now I know why I wanted these big wide steps. For picture taking!
We had an Easter egg hunt after dinner. There were one hundred and three eggs to find, plus a golden egg with money inside. Grandkids always like candy and money.
The smaller boys got to hunt in a special area. They wouldn’t have a chance with their bigger cousin standing there.
Then they all hunted the rest of the eggs. It didn’t take them long to find all but two of them.
It was a fun day and a tiring day. Not a half hour after everyone had left David and I both fell asleep. Him in his recliner and me on the couch and I slept for two solid hours. Not saying we were worn out or anything, but we were tired.
The building of our porch is going gung ho.
This big truck parked across the street with our lumber.
With this vehicle, it was easy to unload the lumber to our yard.
The steps looked like this just a couple of days ago.
The cedar siding is going up on the house. I am going to stain this.
Piles of lumber still sit on the porch for the railings and the rest of the siding. My little magnolia tree has made it through all the tearing down and building up. It opened its flowers fully this morning, just in time for Easter.
David is already enjoying the porch. We hope many memories will be made as they were on the old porch. Come and sit a spell with us sometime. Bye.
