As I wrote in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, Easter Sunday was very busy for me. After worshipping, I visited with friends, and distributed sweet treats.
Later, I made my way to my daughter B's home. There I visited with her and her children that were at home. Of course, I brought a plate of those delicious peanut butter cookies that I had baked.
In addition, I brought a basket full of goodies, for everyone to share.
This is what I've done over the past few years. It got too difficult to try and remember who liked what and who didn't, especially when there were five (5) children to provide for!
My daughter P texted me, letting me know that dinner was almost ready. After giving farewell hugs and kisses, I drove a few blocks away.
At P's we enjoyed a delicious meal.
All P's children were home, plus there was another guest, in addition to me being there. It made it a tight squeeze around the table, but we all managed!
For dessert, we enjoyed sweet treats, together. Including a delicious apple pie that wasn't something I had provided for dinner.
Of course, there was a plate of peanut butter cookies, as well. And, the basket of goodies for all P's family.
By the time we chatted for a while after dinner, I began feeling tired and worn out. Driving home, I felt like I needed a nap.
After all, after eating a delicious, special meal, who wouldn't feel like they needed a nap?! :)
On my way home, I reflected upon the day. And, gave thanks. And, sang.
This reminded me of Psalm 100:1, "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands."
Even if it hadn't turned out to be the day I had dreamed of, it had been a blessing to me. Especially, since I was able to spend time with my family members. Or, at least, most of them.
I praised God and thanked Jesus. I prayed the Holy Spirit would continue to do His work in my life, and the lives of all I know, love, and care for.
And, I was thankful for Easter Sunday. Resurrection Sunday! Hallelujah!
Until next time...
