Happy Easter!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter Sunday!
As a church musician, I have spent the last few days playing for Holy Week services.  It is very tiring, but also very beautiful and one of my favorite times of the year!
Here are a couple of glimpses of the glorious flowers in our church.  The Easter lilies are so beautiful, and here is a close up of the Easter candle flowers.  So pretty!

At our early Mass, the youth played their instruments.  I have such a good group--a flute, 2 violins, a bass, and 2 clarinets.  The youth cantor and I are sitting on the back row.  My adult choir sang at the later morning Mass.  Then I had my family for lunch.  I think I will be in bed early tonight!!!  But it was all worth it!

Thank you for stopping by and please come back soon!  Happy Easter!

Thank you for sharing those beautiful photos Frances. We forget how tiring Holy Week must be for church officials. Our priest looked worn out yesterday! Happy Easter to you and hope you get some rest now.

I'm sure you all made beautiful music for the church services, Frances! Music is such an important part of a church service for me--I love it!

Hope you have a bit more free time now to relax and stitch :)
