Be Longings

I don't like going to church without Amy on a regular attend Easter services without her was especially difficult. It's the first Easter in our marriage that we didn't worship together and I didn't handle it well.

The children were adorable. The food (we're Baptists we eat) was great. Gordon's sermon was tremendous...but Amy wasn't there.

Without her by my side, I didn't feel like I belonged.

Upon reflection I now think that's a good thing.

You see, on this day it's not necessarily bad to feel as if you don't least at first.

After all, none of us really deserve to "be there" - but we do....because He is Risen!

Happy Easter my friends.

p.s. Happy Birthday Sarai!
