it's a day early, but...

...happy Easter! We're celebrating tomorrow at Church, of course. My husband tells me we'll be singing one of my favorite hymns, "Deck Thyself, My Soul, with Gladness," during Communion. A guy will be baptized, too. I can't think of a better day to be baptized, can you? There's no way I'll get through the service without a little mascara-ruin. We're praying that the forecast for rain is wrong - how would the cute kids at Church hunt Easter eggs?? Afterward, we'll feast on Greek food at Yia Yia Mary's. I'm baking my favorite cookies as well; they're pretty much a staple in my diet now.

Praise the Lord, Jesus:

"And He Who was seated on the throne said, 'Behold, I am making all things new.' Also He said, 'Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.'"
[Revelation 21:5]
