Never saw you look quite so pretty before
Never saw you dressed quite so lovely what's more
I could hardly wait to keep our date this lovely Easter morning
And my heart beat fast as I came through the door
In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it
You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade
I'll be all in clover and when they look you over
I'll be the proudest fellow in the Easter parade
I'm planning on going to an early sunrise service Easter morning. I've never been to one before, but I've heard it's very moving. The weather should be just perfect. This will be the first Easter in my recent memory when the weather will be so nice. All the sweet little girls won't have to cover up their pretty smocked dresses with a drab, old sweater. It's sure to be a beautiful day.
Happy Easter everyone. I hope your Easter weekend is filled with celebrations of our living savior, lots and lots of laughter and even more love.
Till next time...
