Easter Blessings

I hope your Easter was as blessed as mine. After experiencing my first Maundy Thursday service, the Easter service was especially joyful.

We spent the afternoon with family, playing games, watching the Master's Golf Tournament (wasn't that Iowa boy's win amazing?) and talking.

Family seems especially sweet this weekend, for last week we learned that one of our family members' cancer has returned. Radiation treatment has started and will continue for the next week or so, then they will evaluate the situation again and decide on another strategy.

The songs, the sermon, the fellowship, the reminder that as Christ was resurrected, so shall all who believe in him be, was so sweet to me in the face of this family sorrow. It was a wonderful reminder that God is good.

All the time.


  1. Sorry to hear about your family member--it's a tough reality to face. I pray everything goes well for you all. And God IS good all the time.
