Happy Easter! One of my new Easter favorites over the past few years has been waking up early to go to the Sunrise Service. Well, maybe not so much the waking up early part, if I’m being honest. Besides that, there is just something so amazing about spending Easter morning, watching the sun rise over the water and reflecting on the resurrection of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
A pretty great crowd of our church family and friends gathered together this morning at Newport Beach.
We sang songs
And listened to a pretty amazing message from our new friend, Eric. He is a pastor from Zambia and we were so blessed to hear him share this morning.
Afterwards, we drove back to our church to enjoy a delicious Easter breakfast cooked up by some of the men from our church. Everything was delicious and we really enjoyed it all. After we ate, I asked my friend Olivia to take a quick picture of our family.
Then, I took a quick picture of her and her beautiful friend.
And then I proceeded to take a few cute pictures of her brother and his amazing girl friend, who was here visiting this past week.
As friends were trickling in for the Sunday Service, I grabbed a few more quick shots.
We have so many wonderful friends in our church family and we are so, so thankful for all of them.
The Sunday Easter Service was wonderful. It was good to be surrounded by amazing people and to focus on the Jesus’ resurrection being the reason why we celebrate Easter.
After the service, we headed home. We don’t have any more activities today, which makes this Sunday unique for our family. Usually we would have Sunday School, Bible Study and College Group. The kids had fun finding their Easter eggs, which held a few yummy pieces of candy and lots of quarters. The rest of our day has been spent resting and relaxing. I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter!
