I'm sure you're all too busy to check your blog-mail today (as I should be!) but I just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Easter!
This is always a bittersweet holiday for me because my mom died just after Easter and then my dad followed her a few weeks later. When I sit in church on this holiest of days...I think of them more than ever. I cry sad tears because I miss them terribly ~ but I also cry happy tears when we sing the words about death being swallowed up in victory for those that believe in the Lord.
I know mom and dad (and hubby Patrick) are having a grand time in heaven this morning. While we're all down here coloring eggs, scurryng around looking for baskets and trying to piece together the mystery of the Cross ~ they're sitting at the feet of the Risen Lord having all their questions answered.
Happy Easter my friends. May God bless you this day with peace and happiness and a faith that abides.
