Sunday Matters: Easter Sunday

Sunday Matters

I think it’s cool how Easter means so much more to me now. Sure, the Easter Basket stage is over and done but the significance of the day itself brings me happiness. No big Easter dinner this year but some kind friends invited us over for a meal so we are looking forward to it.

Right Now:

I do not have student ministry today and we attended Easter service yesterday so both of us are volunteering at three services today. After we serve, we will head over to our friends to celebrate.

This Week:

I have a couple of meetings this week but nothing major and no appointments. I hope to catch up on my reading. Especially since book club will come up before I know it and I haven’t put a dent in our April selection, Demon Copperhead. Many of you reminded me how long it is so I best get on it.


My reading will be focused on Demon Copperhead but I received six review copies this past week and they are too good to ignore so they will motivate me to get through Demon quickly. In case you’re curious, the review copies include the new Alice Hoffman, the new Joyce Maynard and Taylor Adams.


Not a thing. Still. Although with the new John Wick movie out I’ve been curious about the franchise and may watch the first one for kicks. I mean, he goes after people who killed his dog??? Sounds like a good premise to me.

Grateful for:

  • The skies here have been amazing and full of color. Easter should be really nice and warm.
  • After sleeping in separate rooms for a bit, I am pretty caught-up on my sleep. We’ve been keeping each other up for months so it feels good to be fully rested.
  • Daily walks. No matter how crappy I feel I am pushing myself out the door. The Otter Pup helps.

Have a great week!
