Last night's Great Easter Vigil was absolutely the most spiritually uplifting service I have been to in years. It wasn't as well attended as it might have been, but it was beautiful. Our rector's wife brought bells, and when we sang the Gloria we all rang our bells. It was, indeed, glorious!
Today was a beautiful service, too, but really a postlude to last night. Raf sang in the choir, and Carolyn, Beth, John, and Arsi sat with me. These are photos I took after church back at home. First Raf took portraits of us all, of the three kids together, of John and Arsi, and so forth. Then I took these snapshots. First of Arsi.Then of Joey and Carolyn...Joey went outside and washed all of my windows, too.
Of Arsi and Bethy. Bethy had a new dress of turquoise, and she looked outstanding!
Of Raf petting Jake.
Of Carolyn cuddling Turtle.
Of John petting a BAD Turtle on the turntable.
Of Bethy's new shoes.
Of Jake bathing.
Of Gus begging to be let out, please...right now!!
Blessings to you and yours on the joyous day!
