Easter 2009


Bryan and I attended a Good Friday service at our church. It was the first time we did this, but I'm so glad we did. We had a previous pastor of Emmaus bring the sermon. He preached from John 18 and the last 24 hours of Jesus life before dying on the cross. It was an amazing sermon. The worship time was amazing and I loved singing (although I'm sure I sounded hidious). After the sermon, we observed the Lord's Supper. It was the best way to spend Good Friday. I hope our church does it again next year.

Easter Sunday was cold and rainy. My dress was sleeveless but luckily I was able to find this little half sweater (I'm not sure what the proper fashion word is because it is less than a cardigan. It's shorter than a cardigan.). There is at least one family I know of at church that always tries to coordinate colors at Easter and I decided a few years ago to do that with Bryan and I. Some may think it is dorky, who knows.


After church on Sunday we made a very quick trip to Ada to eat lunch with Bryan's family. It was a great trip. We were able to see Bryan's parents, grandma, aunts/uncles, and cousins. A great way to cover seeing all the family quickly.
I hope everyone has a great week!

Julie,
Our church always has a Good Friday noon service and it is one of my fav's of the year.

I love your dress ~~ I heart green ~~ and that sweater is so great. You two look so cute. I don't think color coordination is dorky at all!!!

Have a Blessed day,

That's a great picture of you and Bryan.
I love your outfit. So pretty!

I'm glad you all had such a great service and were able to spend time with family. I felt sick most of the weekend and have felt pretty crummy this whole week. I'm finally better this evening. We did have a nice day on Easter with our little family.

Enjoy your weekend.

Love,
Valerie
