Happy Easter!

Easter is a time for great celebrating no matter what denomination you are. Children celebrate this time with Easter egg hunts and enjoying the treats in their Easter baskets. I love the innocence of youth and the simplicity in which they see life. Years ago, my 5-year-old granddaughter Kenzie attended a Catholic church Mass with my daughter and I. Kenzie had also attended church services with her other grandmother at the Church of Christ. Part of the services there has the children leave the service and go to church school when the bell rings. So, it wasn’t any wonder when, during the Catholic service, the alter boy symbolically rang a bell, and Kenzie promptly exclaimed in a loud voice so all could hear, “Time to go, the bell rang.”
