As I previously wrote, we were at the beach for Easter Sunday. We woke up early and headed down to the beach to catch the sunrise while we worshipped the resurrection of our Savior. While we didn’t have a wholly unobstructed view of the sun, what we could see was magnificent in its beauty. I do believe we have started a tradition that we would like to see carried out year after year! It was intimate and lovely with a focus on the King and the blessings He has so richly given to us.Later in the day, after we returned from our beach getaway, we met up with our friends for a fun game of Find the Eggs! We had a big group of smiling children that couldn’t wait to get their hands on some candy. We even got to try out some Italian cookies made by Giacomo, our Italian American friend (pictured with Gracie). While all this seems incredibly normal by American standards, we know it as a true answer to so many prayers. Our girls have friends. We don’t take that lightly, or for granted!
Easter 2015 sure looked different than any other Easter we have ever experienced, but it definitely is one that gives me the warm fuzzies when I think back on it. I am so thankful we go to experience it with family…our Texas and our China family!
