We had a wonderful day celebrating our risen Savior. Our morning started out incredibly sweet with a powerful lesson learned through scripture. The washing of feet by Jesus to his disciples. I love that my kids were taught how Jesus set the example of humility through washing his disciples feet. Because you know what? Almost the entire elementary Sunday School class thought their feet would be washed by their parents. But they got to learn the backwards model – Jesus being servant to all even though King of all. It was really special.
And then our choir and praise team led us in some powerful worship. It was really awesome. The preaching was fantastic and then three elementary age girls were baptized -all three of them are very good friends of our family so it was just really special.
Our immediate family lives 6 hours away and we miss them so much on special days like this but we have really grown to love having people over from church to celebrate with. Today was a lot of fun.
Cracked me up that we had a 6th grade and an 11th grade boy that didn’t feel “too old” to hunt eggs. Ha!
This picture of the kids hanging out under the hood of the car cracks me up. Our athletic director hid the golden egg in the grill of the car. The kids knew they were “hot” but couldn’t find the egg anywhere. They all came out from under the car with all kinds of grime but no egg. He had to go under there and get it for them.
Of course we couldn’t have a big day like this without some drama. Sophie fell through the heat vent? Not sure how exactly. She was looking for a toy that she thought fell through the vent and when she took the grate off and stood on the wood underneath it she fell through. Our youth pastor’s wife grabbed her and pulled her out before she went all the way down thankfully. It scared Sophie to death and she got scraped up pretty good but she’s fine.
I hope you had a wonderful Easter Sunday celebrating the fact that Jesus is alive forevermore!
