I was hard to get out of bed this morning. We were to go to a community Easter sunrise service hosted by three community churches at the cemetery on the hill outside of Singers Glen. Finally I dragged on out and when we got there I was glad we went. The weather was beautiful and the scene breathtaking. As the sun came up I gazed at the post card scene of the village of Singers Glen lying in the valley south of the cemetery. To the north lies the now abandoned dairy farm where I grew up and farmed myself for 16 years. The recent rains have really brought out the budding trees and greened up the grass. The rising sun reflected off the tombstones, creating a beautiful glow. What a wonderful time to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus and the hopes for an abundant season that the recent refreshing rains and warmer weather are bringing forth.
