“But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.”
~1 Corinthians 15:20~

It’s been a busier couple of days doing Holy Week things. Thursday the boys and I went Easter clothes shopping. Grandma keeps them stocked up on church clothes, church shoes, tennis shoes, school shorts, uniforms, coats, and most of their clothes. But most years I try to take them shopping for new shirts. They each picked out two and I picked out a couple for my older son.

This morning we had the Matins service. Dad had to preach so he left a little early. The baseball team had an away game in Decatur, so my son left earlier this morning to ride there with Grandma. I was scheduled to help stuff Easter eggs after the service, so my daughter and I helped with that while Dad took the boys and made it over after church for the rest of the baseball game.

My daughter and I stopped by a consignment shop to look for dresses. She was looking for one to wear to prom. She tried a few on but none were quite right, which it’s harder to find dresses in a store like that. We then went to Wal-Mart for more clothing items which took a while for us both to try on. She found what she needed and I found a couple of shirts I could wear for the spring.

Next we went to County Market to get the rest of the items for the breakfast casseroles and salads. They didn’t have strawberries, to my confusion and surprise, so I called Dad to see if there were any stores where he was at that looked like they would have strawberries there (I really didn’t want to go back to Wal-Mart). He said there was a Schnucks and he could pick some up there.

The Easter Vigil was later this evening. In the past it’s started at 7 but tonight it started at 8. Dad had to read, bring the wood, and start the fire. Before that I’d made soup for anyone who was hungry. The kids cleaned the kitchen and helped me with food things. It’s becoming a tradition to worship softly through Easter morning services. I stay in the kitchen where there are works for me there.
