Easter Egg Huntin’ And Family Time
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!
