I love a brass quartet. They always give me goosebumps.

Congrats on the new dress. Isn't it great when you can look into a dressing room mirror and not cringe? For the first time in years I bought my dress in the "regular" size section and it felt so good!

We had a fantastic Sunrise Service at Camp Magruder. The weather was utterly wretched, but they had a cheery fire going in the newly renovated fireplace. We brought a brass quartet and our tone chimes choir, and were joined by the Nehalem Bay UMC choir. 90 people attended! We rattled the rafters!

(Vanity Moment: I bought myself a new dress for Easter, and I looked fabulous! It was the first time in years I'd felt like buying something new and pretty.)

I have been to a couple of Sunrise services over the years and have found them to be so very uplifting and peaceful.

Our Sunrise Service wasn't as early. It was at 7:00. I think my husband is terribly easy on people. I always scheduled it for the actual Sunrise time, which may have been 7:00. I like it when we start in the dark or near dark.

Yes and no.... By the time I got to church I felt sad and anxious and knew I had to see my daughter. I am not sure what it was all about, but I got permission to get out of my church duties and drove to my daughter's work. She was sad and anxious, so we had lunch together and I listened. We both felt much better. I think I did what Jesus wanted. It was an unusual but great Easter.

4:30....That is brave. That reminds me of strawberry picking and paper routes.

Thanks Cathy. I went to the 10:30 service. I would love to make it to the sunrise service someday. The spirit is willing, but the flesh keeps hitting the snooze button. Besides, I had to get up at 4:30 Monday morning, so I didn't want to get up so early twice in a row. Did you make it? I hope you had a nice Easter regardless.
Linda

Glad you are here. Do you have other special plans for Easter? I am debating whether to try to make the sunrise service or not.....

Hello Everyone,

My name is Linda and I am a member of the Santa Monica First United Methodist Church in Southern California. I figured Easter was the perfect time to refocus on my health and weight loss goals since it is the season of new beginnings. I was happy to see that there is a Methodist Spark Team and I look forward to meeting all of you.
