The Perfect Backdrop

I am really sad and disappointed in myself that I did not take a single picture this weekend.  It was Easter and it was a beautiful day, with temperatures well into the upper 80's.  I like to think that the reason I didn't get any pictures was because we were so busy having a good time.  When you are too caught up in the moment to stop and take a picture those sometimes end up being the memories you never forget, so you snap a mental picture instead.

This past weekend was Easter Sunday, the day that Christ rose from the grave and saved us from sin.  I sometimes feel like a failed Catholic because I certainly don't attend Sunday mass on a regular basis like I should.  I always said that all of the religion I was taught in 10 years of Catholic school should add up and count for something, but I don't think it does.  Attending mass every Sunday should not guarantee you a spot in Heaven, but that's a whole other tangent that I won't get into right now...

Holy Angels Church, about 5 minutes up the road from Colton's Point, holds their annual Sunrise Service at the St. Clement's Island Museum every Easter.  Since we've moved to the Point, Bubba and I have made it a tradition to invite our family to join us at the mass and then come back to the house for breakfast and a few fun games.  Because Easter was so late into April the weather was perfect, especially compared to years past where we were bundled up in blankets and coats.  As you've seen many times on this blog, our side of the Point is blessed with some of the most gorgeous sunrises you will ever see, and there is just something about sitting through a service and being able to watch the sun come up over the water and hearing the birds that is just so calming. 

These pictures aren't from Sunday's service, but they were from last week so I thought I'd share.  Like I said before, I wish I had of taken a few Easter pictures, but I just didn't get around to it.  Maybe I'll steal some from other family members...For now, enjoy these few pictures I snapped before leaving the house for work one day last week.
