A Friend Is
Sorry to have been quiet here this week. Last weekend was a very busy weekend and I'm still emotionally recovering from it (in a good way).
The CCF reunion was simply amazing :) Caught up with friends I haven't seen or spoken to in years, and to have hundreds of people spanning four decades of alumni in attendance is a tribute to the vision and discipleship training we all received under Brady's tutelage. My heart was full to overflowing and still is :)
I managed to squeeze in this week's Verve sketch before the Easter weekend rush begins (we are hosting and have company for three days). I combined it with this week's ColorQ challenge and though I'm not totally satisfied with the outcome, I simply adore the sentiment - particularly poignant based on last weekend's reunion. Lots of fingerprints left on my heart :)
Chef Jeff (aka my hubby) will be cooking a big ham from our local butcher, scalloped potatoes and some veggies with a side of sweet potatoes brought by my mom and dessert made by my daughter and Jeff's mom. I will proudly be sous chef and clean up girl LOL. Looking forward to a great family weekend and the celebration of Easter's victorious message of the death and resurrection of Christ! It will be particularly special as the God Rod Team (synchronized rod movements to a song) my son is a part of will once again be performing to Arise My Love at both Sunday services. It is a powerful song that makes me cry every time I see them perform it and I have already stocked my purse with extra Kleenex LOL! Toss my son's weekend soccer tournament into the mix and this weekend is going to be crazy busy. Think I'm going to need a weekend to recover from the weekend!
Thanks for dropping by today and have a blessed Easter!
