For the past month or so, the idea that Easter is coming has meant something very different to me than it usually does. Usually I think about what I will do for Easter dinner, who will dye Easter eggs with me, and what can I wear to church on Easter Sunday. This year is different because now I work at a church. Easter is like the Superbowl. (Christmas is like the Superbowl, too, so there’s two Superbowls, but Easter is one of them.) Added to that is the fact that our church is moving the Sunday after Easter, and my team will start teaching a new series and performing live skits. There’s so much I have to do that I almost forgot to put up my Easter tree!
Well, it’s actually more like an Easter Collection of Branches, but I call it a tree. It’s an idea I stole from my friend Mandy, but I think it looks a little better when she does it. It’s fun anyway, and it puts me in the spring-y mood.
