He is risen!!!
We had a wonderful Easter as I hope you did too.
Easter dinner included four of my six children, and Elle, Jim's girlfriend as well. Of course, John was not able to come home from London. Nor could Anne and Zach make it from Atlanta. We missed them!! But the table was pretty full, Jim having flown in from Dallas and Mike in town from South Bend! Not bad!
We had the annual Easter Egg hunt, even though nearly all the kids are now adults. I give them the choice of helping to hide the eggs or hunting for them. So far, every year they all choose to hunt them. The gold egg is the "Alleluia Egg" and when it's found the lucky seeker is supposed to shout, "Alleluia!"
This very sought after egg usually contains, oh, twenty dollars or so. (Occasionally I have insanely put more in there.) Could this be the reason my grown up children still enjoy the hunt? Hmmmm. Liz (the youngest) found it.
Elle found the companion silver egg, which usually contains a lesser amount of money. (Elle might have found the "Alleluia Egg" too, but I think she was holding back, not wanting to find them both. I told her that was unnecessary and that's it's every seeker for himself....still, I think she did not want to find them both. Actually, that's what she said.)
Starting with the magnificent Easter Vigil at Christ the King Catholic Church in Ann Arbor, it was a very Spirit-filled and blessed Easter.
Hope yours was the same!!!
