Easter Saturday

Tomorrow we will celebrate Easter with most of the family. My eldest son and his wife drove into the area early yesterday afternoon. That was good timing as we were blessed with about four inches of snow last night. I am reminded of a line from a "Golf Trail" commercial, the gist of it is "Winter is something to be endured". Today my daughter and her family are driving down from near Detroit and are running into problems on the road. All are converging here for a family birthday dinner tonight. Our youngest son turned 27 recently.

Last night the wife and I attended a Tenebrae Good Friday Service. At one point the tale was told of the Garden at Gethsemane. Somehow I seemed to feel justified upon being reminded that even the disciples of Jesus had difficulty staying alert and attentive during long periods of prayer and meditation . Perhaps there is some hope for me yet.
