Combined with a "Come as you are" invitation,
Set the tone for our Simple Easter Celebration.
While flowers danced
And trees sang a full chorus of beauty,
We sat down to tea with a thankful heart
For the gift Christ bestowed so freely upon us all.
A simple feast,
Fresh and delicious,
Paired with mom's whole wheat buttermilk scones
Satisfied those arriving
With heartiest of appetites and smiles.
The afternoon called us to orchard walks,
Teetering and tottering,
And butterfly hunts.
Gentle nets and sharp-eyed girls
Could catch but a single grasshopper.
(Released promptly following an obligatory photo.)
It proved a day of sweet, sweet simple joy
Full of wishes that it could last an eternity.
Thank you Jesus for a Dream Come True

And I give unto them eternal life;
And they shall never perish,
Neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

And this is life eternal,
That they might know thee the only true God,
And Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
