Resurrection Sunday dawned and was an equally good day. Grandson Kohen accepted his first communion and baby Bodhi came for his very first Easter Sunday Service.
I’m feeling blessed by all the Lord has provided for us.
We don’t always have warm days for Easter in North Dakota. After a year of isolation and missing so many events, including in-person church service, this Easter was like a reward from God.
It felt so good to be back in the pew, to sing together, pray together and commune together. God is good.
This past week, especially, prayers have been plentiful around here. A prairie fire took thousands of acres and threatened our beloved historic town of Medora, ND, and the preserved places around it. We feared it would jump the interstate and move into Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The animals, including many species, among them buffalo and the herd of wild horses, call the park home. This time of year there are many babies being born in the park. Fear ran in our hearts. Again God blessed us with dedicated firefighters and local, state and federal agencies responded quickly to control the wildfire, preventing structural damage to the city of Medora and the surrounding area.
This fire touched the hearts of those of us who have grown up with or come to cherish the history and the love it was built on. It was spared and God was once again present.
Life is good today.
