Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead ... 1 Peter 1:3
Easter is a powerful holiday. For the first time in our married life we made it to the Holy Thursday and Good Friday Mass. The girls asked if we were going to a Holy Saturday Mass tonight. I told them we would not. I am not sure they get the power of the weekend celebrations. I assume I have about 8 more years for them to "get it", if not they may never care to understand. Jake and I came home from Mass to watch "The Passion". The movie is almost too much to watch and I have guilt in just turning my head. I didn't realize Jesus is played by the same guy that is in "The Person of Interest". He does a fantastic job.
The girls and I made some extra Easter goodies including fruit salad, deviled eggs and cupcakes.
Although one of my favorite parts of the Easter weekend is seeing all of the new life in a new calf crop and just the hint of greener pastures. Jake, the girls and I went out to put mineral out and watch the calves laying in the sunshine and running about with the energy only the sunshine can bring.
I hope you enjoy your Easter weekend and watching all of the signs of new life.
