Mom, Mom The Easter Bunny Found Me!
Easter Worship With Our Home Congregation
A Sightseeing We Will Go
Well, when I got up this morning it was down right chilly out in the living room. Now what? I knew I had left Tiny Tim on the night before. Right? Wrong! When I got up in the middle of night to turn the heater on high, I mistakenly turned it off. Now how about that. So, I turned the furnace on for a bit and just like that it was all nice and warm once again.
Now for the next surprise.
When I opened our front door this morning I discovered that the Easter Bunny had paid us a visit! There on our little step stool were Easter Eggs and chocolate candies. Now how about that!
Time now for Easter worship with our home congregation in Colts Neck, NJ.
Pastor Scott began our service with the Call to Worship.
Our first song, one of our favorites.
We had lots of wonderful, uplifting music.
Pastor Scott delivered a fantastic message. He focused on the word empty. He stated that often when we use it, it carries a negative meaning. For instance, the gas tank is empty. My wallet is empty. But in terms of the empty tomb the word becomes a positive. Empty now means Jesus is not there. He is not locked away. Death could not hold him. He is not there in the grave. The grave is empty. Then where is He? He is alive and let loose in all the world. He is here with us. Going before us. Ever with us wherever we may go. In so many words, though I may not know what is around the next corner of life, nevertheless I know that waiting there for me is my Lord and Savior. He is there to sustain, uplift, guide, comfort and see me through whatever I may face. Amen.
Our closing song.
The Easter Sanctuary.
Worship over it was time to go sightseeing again. We packed a lunch for later and off we went. I’ll give you just a hint tonight of where we went. Unfortunately, I can’t go into full details since I have a project for church I need to complete. But here in brief is where we went.
Our first stop.
Our second stop.
I’ll have more about these two historical sights and a bit about the history of Darien, GA in the next few blogs.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. We’re home resting our weary knees right now but planning to do even more tomorrow. Oh did we walk today. It felt good, but it was proof positive that we are definitely out of shape. Of course the only way to get in shape is to do more of the same, more sightseeing and more walking. Which is exactly what we plan to do. First, though, a good night’s sleep.
Thanks for taking the time to read our blog. We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.
These are the voyages of Elvira and her two intrepid travelers. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.
See you on down the road!
