Today is Good Friday, although it's POURING outside and I'm not sure how good that is. :)
This is my first year working at EastLake during Easter, and man oh man, do I now appreciate what it takes to prepare for an event like Easter. I've put in at least three 12+ hr days this week, which at 34 weeks pregnant isn't exactly the easiest feat. But it's been fun and I know will be so worth it.
We are expecting over 8,000 people this weekend. Holy. Balls. We've already had a few minor hiccups in our prep (thank you Mr. Pager Man who can't deliver our pagers on time), but I know and trust that God will prevail. I've been praying for all of the people that are going to come to church for the first time this weekend, and I know that something little like a Pager for their child, isn't going to stop them from hearing about the hope that I've been blessed with.
So here's to a great Easter weekend, and my first one being a part of something so huge that God has orchestrated.
