Rain, Rain, Go Away

We had the plastic eggs counted, the tablecloths set, the real eggs were boiled and ready to be dyed. Sadly, with eight-to-ten inches of snow we had on March 24th, we were forced to postpone the Easter Egg Hunt to March 31st. With our new date set, we again laid out table clothes, setup the egg-dying station, and with much anticipation, embarked on a wild hunt the morning of the 31st.

I will be the first to admit: I did not want to postpone the egg hunt. I wasn’t sure what postponing would mean, but I knew the event would be successful no matter what. I wasn’t going to let weeks of preparation, hours of boiling eggs, and thousands of candy– and toy-filled eggs go to waste.

When the event finally kicked off, we had 60+ kids searching for filled eggs, eating snacks, dyeing eggs, decorating cookies, getting their faces painted, and crafting. We had families from here and far away.

I’m not sure what God is postponing in your life, but I promise you—delays should not lead to denial.

Finally, thank you to every volunteer, parent, and kid for making this egg hung such a success. If you have leftover candy from March 31, I will gladly accept any Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
