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

Resurrection and new birth

From the live grass for the Easter baskets

Planted a month ago during Sunday School


To the annual Lady Bug release

(Aphids don’t stand a chance in this garden)


To enacting butterflies emerging from their cocoon

(A card table covered with a brown cloth)


Learning about and experiencing nature


Taking flight.


Is there a better way to spend a glorious spring Saturday

Than to create memories for children and adults


To experience nature


And God

What a gift.

Happy Easter,
