He Lives!

I hope everyone had a very blessed Easter celebrating the Resurrection of our Saviour. It certainly was a beautiful day! Matthew decorated the chalkboard when he was here on Wednesday so we were ready for the celebration.

Even big kids need Easter baskets. Of course, there was no mad rush to discover their Easter treasures. I think I was more successful getting everyone to church on time when I was dressing five little ones than I am now! I even tried to lure them out of bed with their own batch of Resurrection Rolls.

We had a beautiful service at church. A children's message by Nana, great music, powerful sermon by Pastor Jimmy, and the celebration of communion together.

After church, 17 of us gathered to share lunch together at Mulligan's. The young folks thought they needed to sit at one end of the table. Michael, what are you doing down there??

Steve filled his plate(s) with a bountiful Easter dinner.

He tucked in his tie and prepared to pepper his plates before digging in.

Following a delicious lunch, some of the group headed out for a round of golf. Michael went out to see them off.

Jason also watched the golfers get ready to go as he enjoyed the beautiful sunshine.

The golf group: Jonathan, Jim, David, and Shylah (for moral support). I hear they needed it. :)

David tees off.

They head for the next hole, and the rest of us head home.

Christ the Lord is ris'n today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heav'ns, and earth reply, Alleluia!
