"And it will be said in that day:
'Behold, this is our God;
We have waited for Him, and He will save us.
This is the Lord;
We have waited for Him; We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.'"
-Isaiah 25:8-9 (NKJV)
We had a chilly, breezy, beautiful Easter. It began with attending a moving, candlelit, incense-soaked Easter Vigil Saturday night with my father at my sister's church in her city. When we left the service a luminous moon hung directly in front of us in the sky. The next morning I was up before dawn to attend our own church's sunrise Easter service, and the beauty of that moon over purple mountains was holy. After Easter baskets we went back to church for the traditional service. I rested in the afternoon, battling a raging head cold, and then spent the rest of the afternoon and evening at my in-laws' house. Egg-hunting! Family-visiting! A dessert spread of strawberry trifle, chocolate cake with poached oranges, and cheesecakes.
Everything was beautiful.
