I truly hope you had a fabulous Easter weekend with loved ones! Easter looked very different this year, from a physical perspective. But celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord will never be cancelled!
This past weekend wasn’t nearly as busy as it was planned to be– I’m sure you would agree! Though all my family get togethers and family photo sessions were cancelled, a few normalcies remained. I still went to church! Hagerstown Church of the Nazarene is broadcasting weekly online sermons, with a few people in the background to make it happen– and I was one of them this week! The sanctuary was sadly empty, yet I felt a comforting sense of joy and community as I looked out into that room, because I knew my church family was worshipping along with me. #alonetogether 🤗.
As far as Easter dinner goes, typically my parents, Zachary and I travel to a grandparent’s house. This year, unable to do that, Momma Brown cooked Easter dinner and it was SUCH a beautiful and delicious meal! My dad even pulled out his ice cream maker and treated us to homemade peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream with apple pie from Ivy Hill Farm! And let’s just say I’m SO glad that lent is over so I can have sugar again 😉. Time around the dinner table with my family is priceless, and that’s all I could ask for this Easter season.
Whether your Easter was full of homemade food and family time, or take-out and Netflix, I hope you made the most of the day and enjoyed yourself! At the end of the day, the meaning of this season remains… Our Lord gave His own life so that we can enjoy ours. Quarantine doesn’t seem so bad when I think about all that Jesus went through for us! May your days continue to be blessed and if you ever need someone, feel free to reach out and say hi, I love talking 😌. Now please enjoy this arrangement of pictures to portray how Easter looked for my family this year!
