We had a wonderful, jam-packed weekend this weekend. One filled with games and laughter and rainstorms and thirty-degree temperature swings. But instead of narrating all the photos, I decided a little slideshow would be best. I wish I could take credit for all of this beautiful food you’ll see, but only the strawberry trifle is mine.
Because my words always seem to fail me, and my best friend always seems to be able to put things perfectly, here’s a little excerpt from her own blog today. You can read the full post here.
“Dead gods certainly cannot save. They are of no use at all – no different than positive thinking. Praying to a dead god is just as worthless as praying to some stupid inanimate object, like a couch.
That’s why Easter is such a big deal, the biggest deal. Because a lot of people have died for something they believe in, or for people they love. A lot of people from a lot of different faiths, and from no faiths at all, have died for things. A lot of times it’s inspiring, often it’s honorable, but at the end of the day – they’re dead.
But Jesus – Jesus is alive!”
I’m headed to sleep off my food coma, hope you all had a joy-filled Resurrection Day!
