May you all have a safe and blessed Easter. From Matthew Ch. 28....

1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

2There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

5The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."

8So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me."


Quick Saturday Morning Hit

Many folks in the Piedmont did indeed see some flakes in the air last night, and a fairly substantial snow fell up in the North Carolina mountains last night. I saw a report that Boone received about 5 inches! I encourage to scroll through the High Country Web Cams this morning....sure looks nice up there! I wish I was there to see it!


Back to the Carolinas

I am back in the saddle today after a great weekend down at Mississippi State University. As I mentioned in the post below, it was Super Bulldog Weekend, and we beat Kentucky in the baseball series.

Aside from taking my family back to a place I love and getting to see my friends that I do not get to see nearly often enough, another highlight was eating at some of my favorite restaurants on the planet. Friday night's dinner was at the Perry Cafeteria on campus....great dinner buffett, and always a great chicken quesadilla from the grill. Saturday lunch was at the Bulldog Deli...best deli sandwiches you can find. Dinner was at The Little Dooey...our absolute favorite bar-b-que restaurant. The Little Dooey is now a franchise with a location now open in Concord. The location in Starkville is the original location, and it is still located in an old house. Sunday's lunch was at Abner's....great chicken strips, and that was always our after-church dinner spot while we were in Starkville.

It was a fun trip, but definitely a tiring one. We spent over 24 hours driving through the weekend, so it is one of those occasions where I think we are more tired now than before we left. But again, it was a good time.

As for the weather, get ready for a big cool down. In fact, I think many locations will see the mercury dip below the freezing mark Friday morning through Monday morning. The highest potential for a damaging freeze appears to be on Sunday morning and Monday morning, when mid to upper 20s are likely. You will definitely need the coat for sunrise services Easter Sunday morning!
