God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way. - Anon

He is Risen!
I hope this finds you all happy and well this Easter Sunday, reflecting on the grace of God and the gift of the resurrection. We had a lovely day, went to church this morning, came home and napped, well some of us napped. And now we are getting ready to have a quiet supper. Okay maybe not so quiet, three year olds are only quiet when they are sleeping.
Every year at church the kids decorate a cross with fresh flowers making something lovely out of a symbol of death and shame. They always seem to enjoy it. This year HT brought me his flower rather than putting it on the cross. It was very sweet of him to think of his Mama, but after service we took it up and added it to the others.
I don't know how many of you are familiar with Veggie Tales but there is a story about a Chocolate Bunny factory where some of the characters eat too many chocolate bunnies and get sick. Well I put one small chocolate bunny in HT's easter basket. At first he was excited, but then told me. "Mama, dis is too big for me, if I eat it, it will make me sick, lets give it to Papa." So they shared the bunny.
