But truly it was a profoundly simple, sweet, meaningful celebration of the best holiday of all.
My mother-in-law brought a ham all the way across the ocean, which then traveled down with us by car to Croatia and waited in the refrigerator for this special occasion. Oh how good it was on Easter evening!! "THANK YOU MOM!"
The night before, while sitting around after dinner, someone brought up the subject of songs we used to sing on Easter. I grabbed my computer to get on You Tube to listen, and that was all it took to lead us on a sing-a-thon for the next two hours!
Karaoke at its best, we sang song after song by artists like The Imperials, Sandi Patti, Dallas Holm, Twila Paris, Michael Card, Michael W Smith, Amy Grant, Whiteheart, Glad, Take 6, 2nd Chapter of Acts, Silverwind, Steven Curtis Chapman and Petra. The four of us knew all the words to every song we could think of from the era of the 70's through the 90's!
So of course on Sunday morning, glorious Easter, we had to sing again as we ate breakfast together! "Trumpet of Jesus" by the Imperials never sounded so good as it did with the four of us belting it out around the table. That will be one of my all time favorite memories of an Easter celebration.
