If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Family Day

Today was a good day!

* First we had our first Community Easter Egg Hunt at our church. KLS was in charge. We are a very small church but our people are very giving and very much want to do things for the community. We had about 650 eggs with candy donated. Last weekend my daughter and some of her school friends passed out close to 300 flyers to the apartments and condos in the area of our church advertising our egg hunt. We had a good group of volunteers show up today to hide the eggs and help in any other way needed. We only had 5 kids show up, but let me tell you those five kids had a ball. They got to decorate their own bags and then go out and find eggs. Let me tell you, those kids had bunches of eggs. After that they all "won" prizes and then they got free hotdogs, chips, pop and popsicles. There were even donuts left over from the volunteers that they could eat. Then we were able to tell them about our upcoming Bible School and we're hoping they had so much fun with this that they'll come to Bible School and bring their friends! We're calling this a success because it was the first time we've done one and we learned some things we need to do for the next one and we had 5 kids and about 5 visiting adults and I think they all had a good time. Can't wait to see if they come back!

* Then we ( hubby, me and both girls) loaded up and drove to Cincinnati and went to see the new movie called "Knowing" with Nicholas Cage. It was not at all what I expected. It was good, but again not what I expected. Actually, there were a few places in it where it creeped me out a bit. But still it was fun!

* Then we went Geo-caching in our town. We went to several different places and we found all of them but 1. The first place we went we didn't find the cache, but KLS and I went back later and found it that time. The second place we went, I found the cache! This was the first cache I actually found myself. I was so excited.
The next spot KLS found it (again!! lol)Then I found the next one and KJS found this one.
All in all I'd say this had been a fun family day. Hope you've had a good Saturday too!

  3. Oh I would have brought my little granddaughter to your Easter egg hunt. You are not that far from me are you? I'm on the west side of Cincy pretty close to the River. We also seen Knowing, the part when they whisper always creeped me out and I couldn't figure out what type of movie it was but it kept us entertain for a couple of hours. I like Nicholas Cage.
