Easter Egg Hunt

I love gardens

And children

So it is with great joy

that once again we hosted

The 1st Presbyterian Church Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday.

My friend Kay is my partner for this.

She gives her considerable talent, creativity, energy and education

To the children of our church each week.

She does the lion share of the work for this event

Along with other talented friends.

Four generations of friends, neighbors and church members gather for the fun.

When you think of it, what better place for an Easter event

Than in a garden.

But you may recall I was concerned that because Easter is so early this year

That my garden wouldn’t “look good”.

The grass was not picture perfect green.

Actually it’s mostly brown and still crispy.

Just a few things are blooming

Forsythia, hellebore, pansies and violas

And plants are just emerging from their winter’s sleep.

When will I ever learn that I am not in charge here!

God has it covered…every time.

God…and Kay

She had many activities and stories.

All of which told the story of Easter

Is there a better way to spend a glorious spring Saturday

Than to create memories for children and adults

What a gift.
