A Blessed Easter

Today we celebrated Easter by attending the 8:00 am church service at St. Paul's with 521 other brothers and sisters in Christ.

Pastor Krug sang the solo, He's Alive, right from the pulpit. I love that man and can he ever sing!

We had Easter breakfast in the Fellowship Hall, hosted by the Youth Group.

We joined for a fun afternoon at the Bill & Bobbie Scheuer's house. We gathered with Jim & Fatime and family (with their friends Gary & Faith), Pete & Felicia and family, Bill & Bobbie, Pam (former neighbor of Bill & Bobbie), our family and my mom. It was a beautiful afternoon, so after lunch, the children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt outside.

We are so grateful to have family and friends to gather to celebrate Jesus' resurrection. For without it, we would be nothing. Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross so that we may have eternal life. Alleluia! He is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
