The SUN showed up at our SUNRISE service!

 As we drove in to the site of the Sunrise Service
on Sunday this was the scene 
we were met with.

 Beautiful Skies
and very 
squishy ground.
Therefore no one really
wanted to go in the grass
before it was time.

 These two cuties seemed pretty happy 
to be there.
The sun was an issue for picture
taking as you will continue to see.

These guys are all such great friends.
It makes us happy to watch
them learn together.
After all, 
we would certainly look
to them to be the next generation
of the church.

 My Jonathan is such a clown.
He was a bit disappointed it wasn't cooler
so he could really rock the coat...
but as it was he was HOT.

I linked Jonathan's name to a post
I wrote recently called Dyslexia is not a
Sentence to a Life Without Books.
It should be encouraging to those who
have children who struggle with reading.

 What sun????

 I don't see any sun.  
Why are you squinting???

 A wonderful way to start 
the day if you are a kid!
 Apparently this one was noticing
the sun too.
Well, it is a sunrise service after all.

 Molly just ran away from the rays.
But...she came back.

 As did her brother, Caleb.

 Finally, we got it together.
The group grew by one family after 
this picture was taken but I didn't 
disrupt the service to take another photo
with them in it.

 Wow!  Jonathan is a striking figure.
Especially in that coat.
He started a job on Sunday night
that requires us to go out and get him in 
the wee hours of the morning.
I think I shall be more motivated to 
work on him getting his license.
I am such a terrible passenger.
 Apparently Georgia is minding the sun too.

 This side got the best places.
Backs to the sun.

 Dave got the honors of reading the scripture.
Dave's wife Mindy blogs also.
Just click on his name to see one of her blogs.

 I love this photo.
Fathers and Daughters just melt my heart.

 The service was brief but sweet.
We ended with a song
accompanied by Pastor Mike on his
homemade accordian.
I had no idea you could make your
own...but you can!

Then is was back to the church for 
It was soooo good!

 Plenty of fruit....

Yogurt parfaits went quickly.

Duane made amazing cinnamon rolls.
Everyone raved!!
Duane's name links to his wife,
Kelly's blog.

The Rabes brought their scones.
Ahhh....I love these with cream and lemon.
I linked to their blog because Mrs. Rabe
has a wonderful post about living
the Christian life.
It is not always easy but God is
with us...teaching, leading and guiding.

More Fruit....
so elegantly displayed.

What you are not seeing is milk, fruit juice, 
egg casseroles and meat.
It was a wonderful breakfast. 
Our people can cook!!
Or in some cases,
buy the best boxes of 

I love how everyone works together.
It is good!

Tomorrow I will show our
spontaneous trip to 
Baltimore's Inner Harbor
last night.

It was soooo much fun!

What a wonderful morning, sunshine, blue skies and lots of friends to fellowship with! Handsome Son!

Delicious food, I love fruit and doesn't it make the most beautiful display?

Have a blessed day dear Becky, can't wait to hear about your visit last night:)

You really had a good turnout for a sunrise service. That's wonderful and it proves that there's a level of commitment to the fellowship that other larger fellowships might envy.

Your sunrise service was definitely more sunny than ours! Still a beautiful time.

Blessings, Debbie

It was a great day!

Duane makes awesome cinnamon rolls...

Elena said...

That is so great that you had sunshine. We had rain but we met indoors for our service. What a great thing to do to have breakfast together. The food all looked so yummy!

Fifi Flowers said...

Glad the sun arrived for you... that food looks YUMMY!!!

Ronda said...

I am so glad that you had such a wonderful Easter Sunrise Service.

I have never had the opportunity to go to a sunrise service as of yet...but maybe someday I will.

Thanks for the heads up about the candle give-a-way.

I know the Lord will send the candle to the one who He see's fit. Yet it is always fun to enter such things....hehe.

Hope you dont mind, but I posted about the whole thing and linked your Etsy and Mrs. Melissa's blog both. Thought everyone should stop by your Etsy and her blog.

Have Fun my friend.

Oh...have I ever told you....
Thank You? Thank you for being such a good and honest friend.!
Even long distances mean little to nothing when hearts are joined in friendship. Thank You my sweet friend...for everything.

Luv Ya Chica!

Love & Prayers,
