Lizzie and Chica
I couldn't resist putting this picture on here. This is my 6 yr old, Lizzie and my 2 yr old Chihuahua, Chica. This is how we all feel coming to the end of Holy Week. It is the greatest week of the year, but the most exhausting as well! Don't they look sweet in Daddy's big recliner?
We have 2 services left in the week. Well, I do, my older kids are singing in 2 services tomorrow and accolyting in one, so they have 4 more to go. Tonight it is Easter Vigil, the first celebratory service after so many somber ones the past 2 days. After church we always have an Ice Cream Sundae bar and everyone that gave up a food for Lent brings enough of that item to share. It is usually really fun!! Then of course church tomorrow, with millions of people. There seems to be a lot of "Easter and Christmas Episcopalians". That is my observation anyway, probably true for all denominations, but I didn't notice it so much when I was baptist...
Happy Easter, everyone! May your life be filled with Joy, Peace, and of course - REST!!!
