Twenty years ago I got up about 5 AM on Easter Sunday and rode 11 miles to the church where I was the pastor at the time. I got all of the last minute things ready and conducted the Easter Sunrise service at 7 AM. We had a breakfast at the church and Bible class followed by another Easter service and I rode the 11 miles home. This was after an evening service for Good Friday and another one the day before for Maundy Thursday, all with separate sermons to prepare. Holy Week is exhausting for pastors.
This year I managed one ride of 15 miles on Monday of this week, even though we have fine, fine weather. I may ride today, unless I think it is more prudent to rest for the two services with separate sermons, breakfast, and Bible class I have tomorrow morning. I doubt I will ride tomorrow. Being 60 years of age is a little different than being 40 years of age.
People write all sorts of stuff on this forum disguising things with *** or $$ or double entendre', but it would probably be offensive to someone if I said anything more about why we really celebrate Easter, so I will just say, "A blessed Easter to all!" J*$u$ is Ri$*n!
