Mark Your Calendar

Metro Life Church 2011

Easter Sunday was a full day for us.  It began at 7a. for our church’s 2nd annual sunrise service.  Followed by breakfast served outside in the morning light.  Our 2nd service was filled with emotion as it was our daughter’s last Sunday with us.  She and her family are moving to GA this coming weekend.

After service we had most of our family on both sides over to celebrate an Easter Feast along with an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids – 89 eggs for 6 children!  Yes, it was a bit much, especially once the sugar settled in their little tummies. Lot’s of little Tiggers running around – bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, but they’re fun, fun, fun.

Everyone is gone now, and I’m sitting at the computer contemplating the week.  We pray your Easter was filled with biblical reminders of the rich Truth of the resurrection.  It has made all the difference in our lives, our marriage, and we will never tire of proclaiming it to all who will listen.  May this week be a continued extension of the Easter message – He is Risen!

♥ Fun Dates To Celebrate ♥


  • National Richter Scale Day – celebrate by watching Earthquake or any other classic earthquake movie.  Or you could go out for a milkshake.


  • Morse Code Day – Here’s a great chart to use to learn this code.  Send you spouse a secret love note via Morse Code.  Then, give them a box of Dots.


  • National Kiss Your Mate Day – no explanation necessary, simply enjoy!
  • Cubicle Day – if your spouse works in a cubicle – this is your chance to help them celebrate.  Pack them a “cube lunch”.  Cubed meats and cheese on a fresh salad, and be sure to include a Rubik’s Cube to play while munching away the lunch hour. They’ll be the envy of all the other cubicles.


  • Arbor Day – Plant a tree together.


  • Hairstyle Appreciation Day – Give yourself a new “do” and go out on the town to celebrate your new look.

May 1st

  • May Day – Celebrated the world over in various ways.  Make up your own tradition to celebrate each year.  Like play a romantic game of “Honey, May I?”  Whatever you do make it something special you both love about the Summer.
