Easter 2013

Easter is always low-key for us. We went to the service and then to Sunday School as usual.

We had Easter lunch with Ryan's family and then drove to my aunt's house to get some of the party.
We took some family pictures with Ryan's family.

 
Then we drove to my aunt's house in Conroe. It took longer than it should have to get there, because there was rain, and people drive super slow in the rain. Once the rain stopped, there was an accident. So, all in all it set us back about a half hour. When we got to my aunt's house, the party was pretty much over, but we still got to see some family. We wanted to be home by 8 to watch the season finale of The Walking Dead (duh), but we didn't make it!! We had to stay up until 11 to watch it. Ack. That was our Easter; pictures, lateness, and The Walking Dead!

Of course, I will not discount the reason for celebrating in the rush of our activities. 
Jesus died for all mankind. His blood was shed on the cross, he died, and rose again. The curtain was torn and the Spirit was left for us all. We must approach the throne with repentant hearts accepting his perfection and love.
