We had a wonderfully busy morning at church today. We arrived for the Sunrise Service even earlier than usual, because Turkey and Bunny were both playing parts in the outdoor reenactment. (Turkey was the angel who rolled away the stone, and Bunny was one of the women at the tomb.) We then processed into the church for Morning Prayer, including a much appreciated Te Deum, which was followed Easter breakfast (amazing biscuits and sausage gravy are always the highlight!), and then back upstairs for the Divine Service. I even had a new Easter hat for the occasion!
There is nothing like the return of the alleluias after a long Lent. It truly is the best Sunday of the entire church year!
