I came across some "Gospel Wraps" that my Gramma had to decorate eggs. They are the plastic covers that you put over the eggs then you put them in boiling water and they shrink onto the egg. I was excited to find these and be able to think about my Gramma again. I don't believe people in heaven can look down on us but I really wish she could. We are going to put those wraps on the eggs today to prepare for an egg hunt.
When I was growing up we would go to my Gramma's house and have an egg hunt and have Easter dinner with her. I really enjoyed this time and I'm really missing her today. I really wish I could have spent more time with her. I spent most of my time being too "busy" to see her more often and I really regret it. There is so much I could have learned from her.
I have to admit that this Easter is a little hard for me. We don't have a church, our family isn't getting together, Doug has to work and I don't know anyone in this city. I never thought it would be so hard to find a new church. We have been visiting one but its just not the right place for us and I know that. I love going to church on Easter and hearing the sermon and seeing how excited the kids get but this Easter is just making me a little sad. At least I know the reason for Easter and that is all I need!
