A Different Easter Sunday

This Easter Sunday was definitely different due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the meaning of this special day stayed the same.

We are still practicing social distancing and stay in orders, but my daughter wanted to come home for the weekend. Of course she can. I am a mother. She is my only child. I have Mom-ed through the flu, many strep throats, infections, viruses, scarlet fever, and chicken pops. I refuse to let covid-19 stop me now.

So she came home and we had a great time together as usual as we exercised, baked goodies and dyed eggs. 

My daughter woke up Easter morning to an Easter basket full of goodies, puzzles and little things she needed (shes 28 but when shes home, she 12 again). She also had us a little Easter basket full of snacks. 

After breakfast we got dressed and headed to church for Sunday service. 
It was not an ordinary service. It was a drive in service. Definitely different.

Everyone sat in their cars as the singers sang a few songs and the pastor preached a great service from the porch of a little house on the church grounds.

You could hear horns honk in place of the Amens you normally hear in the sanctuary on a normal Sunday. It was rather nice but sad that it has come to this alternative. I talked to my daddy and saw momma sitting in their vehicle.

This is me and my sister sitting beside each other. 

It looked like it was going to rain but the rain held off until the service ended. As soon as he dismissed everyone, the rain came down. . 

When we came home after church, we had a small Easter dinner complete with ham, potato salad and broccoli casserole.

Hope you all had a great Easter despite of the changes taken place and social distancing. 


  1. I love that you had a drive-in service. Ours was sweet and the miracle of the day took an even stronger meaning.

  2. Hi Lisa
    It sounds like you had a lovely Easter. Nice that your daugther spent the day with you. I love that she got an Easter Basket, I think my mom did the same thing in my 20s!

  3. You were lucky to be able to have a drive in service. We watched the Easter Vigil from our church online which I was happy about. I am glad you were able to spend Easter with your daughter and sound like you all had a fun time. Have a nice week and stay safe and be well.

  4. I keep hearing of the drive in services. I figured they were all going digital.

  5. We did farm and cottage chores, and a simple dinner. Strange times.... Glad you were able to visit with your daughter!

  6. I was here earlier and realized I was on Chrome. For some reason I do not understand it says posting, but does not.
    Anyway I enjoyed the visit and as always appreciate with smiles, the relationship you have with your daughter. Sherry's 'daughter' (Our only grand daughter) stopped by to bring us an Easter dinner. What a pleasant surprise.
    Enjoyed the visit via the net,

  7. We had our church service live on FB like all the services have been lately.
    Yes, sure was a different Easter, but like you said the meaning was just the same.
