We drove over to Tyler this morning to Doug and Linda's house to meet Janie and Gail and other members of the family to celebrate Easter. They attend the Green Acres Baptist Church that we've been to before. It is by far the largest Baptist church that we've ever been to.
Today the church was exceptionally packed with the seldom-goers, like us! I always say I will go back to church soon, but something always seems to come up and I don't make it.
We went back to Doug and Linda's house for lunch of cold cuts and sandwiches and had some really good visiting time with the family and enjoyed our visit. When we got through with lunch and chatting after, six of us went over to cousin Butch's house where we met with him and his wife Cathy. Butch told us that he is going on a mission trip to Asia soon and we all wished him well.
We returned to the refuge to find Todd, Sue and Gary just finishing up their Easter feast on the pavilion. We sat outside talking to them for awhile before turning in for the night. It had been a great day with family and ended with good friends.
