Easter Recap

Maundy Thursday service was beautifully moving told through the stories of Judas, Peter, and John.

After the service, Mark and I cut up multiple pounds of carrots so that I could make Copper Pennies for Easter Sunday.

We attended the Good Friday service and it was amazing. The service ends in darkness and silence. It is one of the most powerful worship services of the entire year.

I worked the Welcome Center on Saturday night and then joined Mark and our neighbors for worship. The entire church was decorated beautifully.

We had several photo opps set up throughout the campus. We decided to take one silly photo first.

Then we took a real photo!

Sunday morning's sunrise was spectacular!

I was at work by 6:45 a.m. and Mark went to the neighborhood sunrise service. He said it was lovely.

We all got a text from Eleanor (standing beside me) wanting to know if we could gather for a photo. We met at 7:30 a.m. and grabbed a great photo. 

After church, the family all gathered at Mark's momma's house for Sunday lunch. We had multiple salads and cheese grits and Honey Baked Ham.

Our friend, Wynn, joined us and he brought a coconut pie which Mark is displaying!

We always have a huge flower cross on the lawn of the church.

Our sweet new baby was still in the NICU on Sunday but Laura, Scott, and granddaughter were able to attend worship.

Glenn, Lauren, and granddaughter #1 were at their church.

It was a wonderful Easter week/day!



  1. Thanks for sharing your beautiful family and church with us! You did get some great photos and they are so important as the years flash by.

    1. Yes! The older I get, I realize just how thankful and blessed we are. I love recording these memories.
