" God's love did not begin at Calvary.
Before the morning stars sang together,
Before the world was baptized with the first light,
Before the first blades of tender grass peeped out
God was love."
What a joy and privilege to celebrate Easter together with our church families and with our biological family. A weekend full of joy.
Paska is one of the traditions that I like to share with my family. I enlisted Miss A to help with icing the dozens of buns and do a taste test before taking them to the family potluck lunch.
Our family of 20 is difficult to capture on a photo but I seized this quiet moment where Lisa led us in a wonderful prayer of thanksgiving.
The food was plentiful and delicious.
Our oldest grandson needed all this food and more as he had just competed a half marathon run, proving he was ready for the May 5th BMO run in Vancouver. Together with his parents who are part of team CHILD of MINE they are running to raise funds to complete a boys dormitory in northern India. Our family is cheering them on.
A wonderful day of family togetherness and expressions of love for God and one another.
