- All four Easter services I attended were great! Love, love, LOVE the song, "Oh, Happy Day," and by attending the four services in the sanctuary, I got to sing it eight times - at the beginning and end of each service!
- Do you know how absolutely amazing our Children's Ministries Director (Miss Kourtney) and our Nursery Coordinator (Miss Janelle) are? You cannot believe the number of kids they provided loving care for, not to mention the great Bible lesson and sweet take-away crafts. Kourtney and Janelle, you guys (gals!) are the BEST!
- I read an article for pastors today asking if we had "Easter hangover," meaning the crash that comes after such a big Sunday. I think any pastor would have to say a big, "YES!" to that one.
- Yesterday, at my sister's house, we had to hide 250 eggs! After a while, there were absolutely no more hiding places, so we just tossed the eggs around on the lawn and placed them on the sidewalks. Quite a challenge for the kids! :-) Each of the ten kids were able to pick up 25 eggs filled with all assortment of candy and coins. And then, the bartering began! "I'll trade you one Sour Patch Kids for a Skittles." "I'll give you a KitKat for a gummy LifeSavor." I could definitely tell the kids are getting older; this is the first year I witnessed so much trading and bargaining over the candy.
- I was able to have coffee with one group of friends and then brunch with another friend today. I am blessed.
- Dave and I went to Costco together to purchase the supplies for our Staff Appreciation BBQ tomorrow. Each year, on the Tuesday after Easter, we plan something to let the staff and their families know how much we appreciate the extra hours and work that they put in for Easter services. We'll have a great time together!
- Met an old college friend this evening for a walk at the university campus. We were able to catch up on quite a bit; I don't even want to tell you how many years ago it was that I was in college! Ouch.
