Some pastors may dread Easter because of the extra services but I love it. This entire weekend has been great.
We had a very meaningful Maundy Thursday service at our church that included foot washing and communion. I was planning on going by myself but I was shocked when the children asked to go. I’m glad they did as Faith received communion for the first time. On Good Friday we had a church breakfast followed by a walk with many of the downtown churches.
In the afternoon, Logan and Abby came for a visit. It had been over a month since we had seen them because of Amanda’s surgery. It was so good to see them again. I wasn’t sure how they would do with our new car (many people with autism don’t like change) but we were able to make it work.
This morning we had a great Easter morning service. We had plenty of visitors and two of our children handed out visitor bags. I really enjoyed the service as the resurrection of Jesus is central to my faith.
The afternoon included a dinner at Amanda’s parents, followed by a bonfire back at our house. Bonfires were a big part of my growing up and I naturally think of my dad as I now start the fires.
This Easter has been a great reminder of all the blessings that are in my life. This is my Good News.
