Easter Egg Huntin’ And Fam­ily Time

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

It was a partly cloudy day, no storms or rain Sun­day, so the con­gre­ga­tion at Sugar Hill Church was close to a house full, present for the morn­ing ser­vices, then the noon “Arkansas” potluck meal was en­joyed by all, plus some visi­tors for that and the af­ter­noon mu­sic.

It was pretty cold but that didn’t de­ter the young­sters’ fun of hunt­ing the hun­dreds of eggs which were stuffed with candy, Easter items, or money.

Af­ter the hunt, those who had found the eggs with Easter items, stood up in front, and told what the item con­cern­ing Easter and the Res­ur­rec­tion, meant to them.

Later, as Ken­neth Davis helped Bud Cox put Paula’s dishes in their truck, they found an egg on the trailer hitch, Ken­neth said, “Lets put this egg in Paula’s dish to sur­prise her.”

They were un­aware that pas­tor Rick was hunt­ing that very egg, one of the spe­cial ones that hadn’t been found.

For a while it was a trick on Rick, Paula didn’t find the egg af­ter all, and I don’t know which child got the money, but more fun. A great day.

I thought I knew what I was miss­ing when I was un­able to at­tend Sun­day, but now I won­der. Thanks to Chris­teen Al­bright for fill­ing me in on the events.

Spring break is sure to bring lots of re­ports, as peo­ple va­ca­tion and visit. One day, my son- in- law Johnny Cheatham, grand­son Dean and great-grand­sons Derek and Hud­son vis­ited me and while here, re­paired a loos­ened arm on one of my fa­vorite chairs. I am so blessed.

Happy birth­day to Mitchell Lay­cox, Deb­bie But­ler, Lon­nie Cantrell, Sara Met­calf, Burl Carter, Ray­lene Porter, Gar­ret Lip­ford, Ron­nie Cochran.

Happy an­niver­sary to Keith and Cindy Lyons, and Chris and Kerry Bradley.

Happy years, all!
