Sunrise Service

(Groovy Girl and Teenage boy share a quiet moment)

My alarm went off this morning at 5:30 am as it has for the last 5 Easter mornings.  I got dressed in my overalls and a warm sweater and woke my two children up to do the same.  I went down and warmed up the car, made sure we had blankets and a pile of hats and mittens.  My husband and his merry band of teens lead the service so he's been up since 4 am getting ready for early risers to arrive at this beautiful spot at a nearby state park. 

The fellowship (the doughnuts and hot chocolate) makes the early morning bearable for the teenagers.

Happy Easter, everyone!  

Especially to the man who gets up early to get it all organized:
