Our Easter

Our Easter weekend began with our home group on Good Friday. Our home group leader did an amazing job including all the kids. The kids all took turns reading scripture that foretold the resurrection. We talked about what life would have been like to be a follower of Jesus during that time.

We took communion together and took time to share and explain through each step. We then had the privilege of washing each others feet. The first time I ever had the opportunity to do this was last year and I found it quite humbling to have my feet washed. It is easier to be in the servant role.

My whole family was amazed at how special our night was with our home group. The focus on Christ and the resurrection was so much more meaningful.

Here is Little Buddy washing Stand-Up Dad's feet. He used a lot of soap and took his time. So sweet!

Saturday evening we took time to color eggs. There were five dozen eggs. Let's just say that the kids have had egg salad sandwiches for the last few days with more to come.=)

Here is the group before church on Sunday. It is an amazing life being part of God's family and doing our best to serve Him! What a privilege to raise these children to know the one true God!

He is Risen! He is Risen indeed!!!
