Friday afternoon, Anna and I started the food preparations for Resurrection Sunday. Spring winds were gently blowing in the open window, making for a perfect baking day!Â I think itâ€™s always best toÂ bake with a sister or Mom, because it goes twice as fast and is moreÂ enjoyable than being in the kitchen alone!
A young missionary couple were staying withÂ Christopher and Anna Marie for the weekend. The young man preached a greatÂ message Sunday morning about our life in Christ being like a seed.Â When the seed, which appears to be dead, is buried in the soil andÂ then watered, it grows and finally multiplies. In a similar way, whenÂ we die to ourselves, and are watered by Godâ€™s Word, then we will bringÂ forth spiritual fruit. It was a very good analogy.
Sunday evening all the relatives came over for a family dinner. AfterÂ that we moved into a special time of reading Godâ€™s Word about Jesusâ€™Â resurrection. Donâ€™t we have so much for which to be thankful?

Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:6
