A Memorable Easter Weekend

I can't help but smile when I think back over each moment of this Easter weekend and the pure joy that came from time spent with treasured friends and the celebration of the resurrection of our savior.

Two of our closest and dearest friends, Larry (Lare) and Rebecca (Rebes), traveled all the way from Phoenix & Chicago to little ol' Dayton, Ohio to spend Easter weekend with us and man oh man did we feel blessed & happy to have them here.

The weekend consisted of quite a few uncontrollable laughing spells, an abundance of deep convos that were good for the soul, discovering "under the radar hipster" spots in Cincinnati, dancing the night away to good, old fashioned, live, New Orleans style jazz, good food and eating too much of it, taking advantage of many photo opps, intense corn hole & taboo competitions, and of course, an unending amount of hugs.

It was an honor to lead worship on Easter Sunday and so special to me that Lare and Rebes were here to be a part of that. And to make the day even more special, my dear worship team leader and friend, Alathea, joined us for Easter lunch. 
"You have bought me back with the riches of
your amazing grace and relentless love."

Community at it's finest.
Love that my dear friends from different communities got to meet :)
