This was a special Resurrection Sunday. Hope, San Mateo had its' first annual Easter Sunrise Service and it was wonderful. Although the sunrise was hidden by storm clouds, the rain waited. Dave preached on the resurrection of Christ, focusing on the fact that it was His reward for being obedient to the Father. God raised Jesus up to reign with Him after a job well done. A job done perfectly.
After service, Jason and Niki Hill hosted a brunch and egg hunt at their house (conveniently located right down the street from ours...) The food was delicious and the company, even better.
And Easter is not quite Easter without dinner with the family. We drove up to my Aunt Liz and Uncle Frank's home in Nicasio, near Marin. They live on the same street as George Lucas (which kind of makes us famous, I think...) We spent much of our time talking and laughing in the kitchen, near the food (not unusual for our family). Speaking of food, Aunt Liz passed out copies of the recipe for our family's traditional Christmas Eve paella dish which I think means she wants someone else to cook this year. Bad news. Because none of us can.
