This weekend was so full of events for us! Saturday night Chris receiving his Sacraments of Baptism, Holy Communion, and Confirmation. I am so proud of him! For those of you who don’t know, it takes about 8 months of classes to convert to Catholicism for an adult. Chris has embraced this and done well! Special thanks to our friend Ryan, our Church’s faithful seminarian, for taking Chris on as his special project and helping him out with private lessons! Easter Vigil was a beautiful mass and really hit me! It’s the vigil of our Lord rising from the dead. The Alleluia (Christ’s song) returns to the mass (it is absent throughout Lent) and the Eucharist is returned to the Tabernacle.
Easter Sunday truly reminded me how blessed Chris and I are. Jesus loved us so much that he DIED for us so that we can have eternal life! What kind of love is that?! An AMAZING love! Chris and I also got to renew our love by being married in the Catholic Church on Easter Sunday. Our Deacon has never married a couple on Easter so we were excited. We were so lucky to have Chris’ parents here, our good friends Mike and Melanie, and my sister Kelsey and her NEW husband Jason on hand to enjoy this weekend. 🙂 GOD IS GOOD!
