Family Traditions

Simple things in life are what memories are made of. Yes, the trips to Disneyland are fun, and the big presents you get some years, but I think - more importantly - are the memories that are made together, and family traditions are one of those things. I know it's not a big thing, but for our family, those traditions hold firm - even in Honduras. While I was in the States, I tried to remember the things I was going to be able to purchase for Easter, and those things that won't be available. Egg coloring kits were one of those things that you can't find here - so I made sure that some came back with us. So, last night, the whole family sat down and colored some eggs. It was a blast! Let's hear it for traditions!

Easter Sunday we have a small lunch planned (ham, eggs, potatoes, dinner rolls, veggies), then "gringo" church - where we will worship in English, then on to a local church for service. It will be interesting to see if the Easter message will be preached. Our experience in the three years, and multiple churches we have been to - is that the Easter story is all but ignored. It may be mentioned, but there is so message of the Passion, or the resurrection, or anything related to Easter.

Happy Easter everyone!

He is Risen...He is Risen Indeed!!!
