Dawn Service

Well - I decided to bite the bullet and go to our Combined Churches Dawn Service. We were to be there at 6am...yep! you heard right - 6am. I woke Eb at about 5.40 and it was a bit of a rush to get her dressed, in the car and up there...we got there about 6.10am only to find it actually started at 6.30. Not a problem really - I just caught up with friends there while we waited.
It was remarkably beautiful. The extra blessing was to experience dawn over our beautiful town - the photo's do a much better job of describing the scene than my words would. It was spectacular. All in all it was a beautiful start to the day - the various Pastors/Priests did a great job - very informal yet very poignant. What a day to celebrate - the day Christ died for me...for us.
It was worth the early morning! Even Eb enjoyed it all. We arrived home about 8am after a belly full of hot cross buns!

Wow looks like a beautiful morning in the pics. Doing things like this creates special memories.
And you are building a Christian Heritage for Eb.
