Holy Week

I've enjoyed focusing on and celebrating Holy Week this year as we lead up to Resurrection Sunday to celebrate what Jesus did for us on the cross.  My biblestudy went to a Messianic Passover seder on Tuesday night.  It is great to participate in the seder and see how Jesus was the Passover lamb.  The Pathways life groups got together on Friday night tour the Stations of the Cross that our church has set up to walk through Jesus' final hours and contemplate his death, burial and resurrection.
On Saturday, I ran the 2 mile race in the Easter Sun Run.  It is a huge local race (also a 10K and 2 mile walk) that is a fundraiser for Youth Horizons which is a local ministry of mentors to fatherless children.  I am training for a sprint triathlon later this summer and plan to run a few races as part of my training.  This was my first race since running cross country in high school.  I did better than my goal. I was happy with my performance.  And it was fun to run into friends from church, work, and 2 girls I went to high school with - one of whom I ran CC with.  
I didn't go home for Easter this year.  It would have been too hectic of a schedule.  But I was invited to have lunch with Janel's family - and enjoyed it very much.  I have been waiting for an occasion to make this dessert that I've been eyeing the photo of in one of Nigella's cookbooks: gooey chocolate stack.  It was definitely chocolate and gooey.
