Despite the construction on FM 113, it has been a great week! There is so much to be grateful for. Ponder this most holy season of the year as we dwell in the freedom offered by the risen Christ. Every church in our community will be celebrating this tomorrow. Pick one and join them! In the tragedy of Notre Dame, the huge golden cross hanging there did not burn despite flames all around. There is always the hope that Easter brings.
