Happy Easter to anyone of my, er, um, former(?) followers, that is, if you still bother to come over to my blog. I just realized it's been almost 3 weeks since I've posted anything. And I was doing to so good at posting something every day. Okay, so I blew it. But, here I am today, on this beautiful sunny day in So. Cal., to say Happy Easter, Happy Resurrection Day to all of you!
Today's service was awesome! The church was pretty full with regulars and visitors alike. But the most important person there was Jesus! His Spirit was so prevalent during the whole service. Everyone "sensed" it. From the first note of the first song during worship, the anointing was there. Such a wonderful presence of the Lord could be felt throughout the whole worship service. Then the choir presented the program we've been working on for the past 2 months. They did an outstanding job. We had a couple of technical difficulties, but they overcame, and were awesome!
Across the street from our church is a small park. Every year, our Children's Ministries workers take the kids over to the park for an Easter Egg Hunt. Today was no different, with the exception of this: The workers had just finished hiding all the egss and they were about to take the kids out, when, all of a sudden, the park's sprinklers came on! Never before, in the history of us using this park on Easter Sunday, has this happened. And I'm talkin' 22 years now!
One would think this might put a damper on the festivities for the kids, but not so! They didn't care - they just wanted those eggs. I was told that one little girl, who was all dressed up in a frilly dress, looked at the teacher and said, "It's just water. I'll dry!" and bee-lined it into the middle of the grass area, sprinklers and all. I think it turned out to be one of the most fun egg hunts they've ever had!
So, it turned out to be a great day, in all points. Thank You, Jesus, for going to the cross for mankind, and me in particular, and that You rose from the dead in triumphant victory. Thank You, Jesus, for pouring out Your Spirit on us and blessing us with Your presence!
