There is Hope in Jesus

In our family we have many Easter traditions. Before mom (Granny Lou) passed away in November of 2020 and pre-covid, this was the one celebration that we gathered with both sides of the family.

My entire Tennessee family and Jeannie’s entire family met together as one bigger happy group celebrating Easter.

We did this for more than 20 years, even after we moved to Alabama. We normally met at the Yacht Club in Guntersville at first and then at local parks as the attendance grew.

I have so many Great memories from those Easter pasts. From the time the boys could walk we have hidden eggs with candy (early years) and money (older years).

Easter is not over (we have a junior in high school and two in college) until we hide the plastic eggs, and they work hard to find the golden egg with some cash in it.
