Happy Resurrection Sunday

Our Sunday started out beautiful and sunny. Here the morning shadows stretch long from the east.

The animals lounged under the awning.

Smoky greeted the morning on top an old tire.

Everyone seemed pleased by the mild spring weather...

...including pretty little Dusty.

Later in the morning we attended a community-wide church service, since it was led by our pastor. We’d never been to a service this large – so big, in fact, that it was moved into a college performance hall.

We didn’t know what to expect, but in fact it was splendid… even if things were a bit more “showy” than we’re used to. But the pastor gave a rip-roaring joyful sermon (he's a joyful guy anyway), and we came away energized.

No one in our neighborhood potluck had any special plans for this weekend, so we decided to have a Pascal feast (at our house, since it's our turn to host). As I post this, we have a turkey roasting in the oven. The house is clean, the stuffing is made, and our Lord is risen.

Happy Resurrection Day!


  1. Happy Easter, Patrice and family! He is risen! He is Lord!

  2. He is Risen indeed!

  3. "The house is clean, the stuffing is made, and our Lord is risen."

    Pretty well covers it

  4. Happy Easter, dear one.
