Not One of Those Families

I don't want us to be one of those families.

I don't want to be a family who only goes to church on Easter Sunday.

We aren't attending a church right now, and haven't for almost a year. (Strangely enough, Easter Sunday last year was our last regular Sunday of attendance.) So, if we dressed up and went to church this Sunday morning, we would be one of those families.

Although I don't want to be one of those families, I do want to be one of those families who celebrates the resurrection of our Lord and Savior on Easter Sunday. And, I want our children to acknowledge it and understand it.

So I have a plan. And it's a plan that I am so excited about!

We won't be dressed in our Sunday best. We won't be matching, like we have been for several years in a row. We won't be sitting in a pew.

But, we will be together. Our celebration of Easter this year will start on Saturday evening and continue through Sunday.

Honestly, it will likely be the most meaningful Easter we have ever had.

I am so looking forward to spending it with my family.

I'll post all about it later in the week.


  1. Looking forward to hearing about your plan! Happy Monday!

  2. I have an AWESOME recipe/story that tells the Easter story. You start it on Saturday night. It's one of our Easter traditions. Let me know if you'd like a copy!

  3. we go to mass every sunday but yes there is a huge spike in attendence on palm sunday and easter sunday. :)

    have a great easter! :)
