Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified.
He has risen! He is not here."
Mark 16:2-6 NIV
We had breakfast at church this morning. The men always cook breakfast on Easter, and--just like always--it was delicious! The worship service was wonderful. Easter is such a special time, and I am always in awe of how much Jesus loves me. I am so thankful for His sacrifice and for the promise of eternal life. What a beautiful, amazing thing!
We spent the rest of the day at home. My side of the family came to our house for lunch, and we enjoyed spending time with them. Aniston was a wild thing and loved playing with everyone--especially Chelsea. (She has been Chelsea's little shadow all day today--beginning at church this morning!)
After everyone left, we all took a nap--and it was awesome! We dyed Easter eggs after Aniston woke up. That was an experience--and pretty nerve-wracking--but fun.
