I hope that everyone is enjoying this beautiful Sunday! Happy Easter to all who celebrate.

Wishing all of you a year of peace and hope. May we all be able to know love and appreciate the sacrifices that others make for us.

Ditto that! What a symbolic day for it.

I had a great day. Sunrise service, yummy breakfast, back into pj's for awhile, then dinner at our place with D's dad.

After all the news segments and media interest in this Boston Marathon, and the incredible national interest.....i will be damned if i can find any television coverage of the race, itself?.....Anyone know if any network is gonna cover the actual race?

I dont think the big kahuna gives out more gold stars to those who go to church twice a year over those who only go once.

At least the ones who never go, are not acting like it's in imposition.

If you only go twice a year, but are a kind, humble, generous person the rest of the year, I bet he would prefer that over the people who go every week, but wield their religion like a sword.

Of course I could be totally wrong. Wig my luck, Jehovah's Witnesses are the chosen ones.

Going to church, I believe, doesn't make you a better person. Being a better person, makes you a better person.

Some people go to church for the community and some people go to give thanks for the opportunity for each day to try to be a better person. All sorts of folks have their reason.

While I respect everyone's right to believe and practice their religion, going to church does squat for your character in my view. The people in the church makes it a better place, otherwise it's just all brick and mortar (or wood and nails -- whatever).

Friday night, we went to an Easter Egg hunt at the local high school that was sponsored by a church ... does that count?

My youngest won the best raffle prize there. It's a pretty cool remote control car, with see through plastic and a bunch of colorful LED lights inside that flash different colors ... It can drive on four wheels or two can pivot upwards and it drives on two wheels and does all kinds of tricks.

Chel -- Was your cousin medically taken out of his coma? Hope he's okay or will be soon.

We called them evolving Door Jews. In at Rosh Hashanah and out at Yom Kippur.

Which denomination is it that holds that you are judged on your deeds in this life and by your faith and not on an attendance record? That's the one for me.

I don't think God needs to have 10 men in one place for anyone to be heard nor does He need a certified intermediary with special words to explain what we mortals are about, but hey, what do I know?
