We started the day with an Easter bucket for Timmy. (Timmy's mommy and daddy could not find any baskets that were not already full of candy and other silly stuff.)
Just getting ready for church wore Timmy out!
One of the benefits of belonging to the pastor's family is getting to take advantage of the pastor's office. Because we were worried about exposing Timmy to too many icky germs, we hung out in Poppy Pastor's office before the service. It was easier to do crowd control back there! The paparazzi arrived. It was fun to see family. One of Timmy's great grandmas had never even met Timmy before!
It is hard to explain how special it was to bring Timmy to church after more than six months in the hospital. It made it even more special that it was Easter Sunday. Timmy did not quite know what to make of the service. When the first song started his eyes got all big and he could not stop looking at all the people around him. We took turns holding his Farrell bag over our heads--several people later told us they thought we were full of the Spirit--Hallelujah!
During the service we got to dedicate Timmy:
And I think we wore Timmy out with all the excitement!
