It’s really a perfect weather April Easter Sunday in Minnesota! So why am I inside instead of out raking the flower gardens or at least sunbathing? I won’t be for long. Doing a little ‘rejoicing’ over the joy that Easter brings to me. No big family gathering this year(yes, I miss each one of you kidlings so don’t make it a habit) but off to gather this evening with friends at the lake. . . .ice all gone and ours to enjoy for the whole awesome summer time ahead. It’s a potluck and I’m excited to bring my homemade lemon pound cake. Pound cake always reminds me of the one ‘cruise’ I went on years ago with some girlfriends. Trays of pound cake around every corner. . . .by the pool and in the exercise room. That only makes sense on vacation.
Rejoicing in the real Easter story. It’s a long story; some sad, quite beautiful and goes on forever(eternal). At the same time it can be very short and to the point; the life, death and sacrifice of Jesus. A big item to fill up our thoughts along with the colored eggs, large ham dinners and. . . .ah, pound cake. Happy Easter to all!
