So sorry about the silence around here lately - Candace and I have started working out every morning at 5 a.m. which means we go to bed with the chickens. Hence the blog silence because most of these are written between the hours of 10 p.m. and midnight. I am working on beginning a new routine moving those late night jobs to early morning jobs! So now that you are full of my excuses, I thought I would update you on this weekend - Easter weekend. It was chopped full of so many good things - it is probably one of my favorite times of the year!
The first was on Good Friday and was called "Ascend the Hill" at our church - it is just amazing. I am still speechless - such a creative way to pause and remember the sacrifice Christ made on the cross. The event began in the Sanctuary with a beautiful skit based on this one from The Skit Guys and then moved outside to the property to a self-guided tour through the events of Good Friday - the garden, the trial, the scourging, the mocking, and the crucifixion. Can I tell you it is probably the most moving event I have ever experienced? You know there are quite a few times when our church does things that make me think I could not love it anymore than I do in that moment, and then we do something else completely unexpected and wonderful again - it's a never ending process for me. I just love my church - if you don't have a church home, come visit CrossPointe!
On Saturday, we all went to Mom and Dad's house for dying eggs, hunting of said eggs, decorating the bunny cake, hanging out the three coolest kids ever, and some sister time!

Of course Sunday was Easter, and I didn't get a single picture! Suffice to say it was a beautiful, joyful, and exciting service at CrossPointe followed by lunch at Papaw's, round-table therapy, and front-porch sitting! I am super blessed to be a part of this community of believers and part of an incredible family! I hope you all had a blessed Easter Weekend!
