Happy Easter

A sunrise photo seems to be appropriate for Easter Sunday, even though I shot it last autumn.

When my Dad was much younger than I am now, he would get up early and attend Easter Sunrise service on Mount Royal in Montreal. I am guessing that he did this regularly for any number of years, including at least sometimes when I was a boy. For a while, around the time when I entered the world, Dad was a preacher, and he always remained a believer, even when for one reason or another he no longer attended church.

It's a beautiful sunrise.

I actually made it to church this morning for the first time in quite a number of years. It was only an hour long service!

Beautiful mood in the photo. Just back from Wheelers - our Easter tradition. Stuffed!

Beautiful photo, AC.

I have had to give up the term "easter." But I rejoice that Jesus died and rose again, that he is the firstfruits of those who sleep.

Blessings!

I find myself wanting to sing "Morning has Broken." I have attended some of these early morning services. Usually they are refeshing, with a chill in the air, and quite pleasant.
