A Very Country Easter!


I hope you all have had a wonderful Easter!  We have had an incredible day.

But, before I share the details, I just have to tell you all that I have missed you terribly!  My blog friends are near and dear to my heart, and I have ONCE AGAIN, fallen off the face of bloggy land.  I will be back to visit you all asap....I pinky promise.

Now,  back to the scheduled program.

Our church has a tradition of having a sunrise service.  It's not just any sunrise service.  It's held at the top of the one and only "mountain" in our area.  It's Two Buttes Mountain, and it "sticks out like a sore thumb" in the middle of prairie.  However, it's beautiful, and we love it.

Back to the service.  It's approximately twenty five miles from town.  So we were up at 4:00, and on the road by 5:00.

This is Two Buttes, later in the day.





When we arrived, it looked like this:


I wish I would have had a headlight like this little guy.



I didn't take any pictures on the hike up, because it was dark.  And, well....because I thought they may have send a helicopter after me.  Man, I am out of shape.

When we finally made it, the hike was SO worth it!  The cross had already been carried up, and was just so beautiful.  Pastor Kathy was waiting patiently for everyone to arrive.



The service was absolutely wonderful.






 Our little grandbaby even made the hike!  His mommy is one tough cookie...I could barely drag myself up the mountain!




 The cross being carried down.  There is something so moving about this....



       

                                                    Happy Easter, my dear friends!
