When Easter and my need for some new tops that fit better fall at the same time, it means a shopping trip. I decided to go with a spring top and dress pants this year. Last weekend, I was very happy to find this shirt for $7.00. So I decided it would be my Easter top.
Saturday as I was going through Walmart, I saw some jewelry on clearance and found the perfect necklace to go with my shirt. It was on clearance for just $3.00.
At J.C. Penny's Saturday, I found a pair of sandals that were $26.99 on sale for $13.99 and I had a $10 gift card so with tax and all I got them for $4.38.
So I got new Easter duds for less than $15. You can't beat a bargain like that. But how you look on Easter morning doesn't matter. What matters is remembering that Jesus is Alive. I went to our SONrise service at the local Optimist Park which sets up on a hill. Right as the sermon ended and we were singing our final song, this was the view we could see.
Our church has been going to a Kodak Community Sunrise Service for 5 or 6 years with other churches in our area. It is truly a blessing each and every year. What a wonderful way to start Easter morning..
I really enjoyed my three day weekend and now it is back to the daily grind.
