Easter 2018

 
The temperature said "winter," but inside the church everything was yelling "spring," and "new life."

The music was wonderful- choir, brass quartet, girl's quartet, and great congregational singing (not just spectating while a worship band plays). He is Risen!

Just for contrast, there's a new production of Jesus Christ Superstar on NBC tonight. I know it wasn't written by Christians, but I've always found it strangely compelling and honest.

We had ham and sweet potatoes and real green beans. I talked to a lady at church I hadn't seen for many years. She's 92. I'm so glad she said something to me because I wouldn't have recognized her.

Spent the afternoon filling out the surveys for the 23 and Me genetic test that Steve gave me for Christmas. I know... I'm slow, but I'm getting to it. I agreed to the research part, so the questions were extensive, and kind of interesting.

A calm and restful Easter. Hope yours was good too!

Normally the store I work at is full of spring flowers before Easter but they didn't order any this year. I love the smell of the hyacinth. Sounds like you have a nice day. Happy belated Easter.

Those flowers sure brought spring into the church. I especially like the tulips.
