A Blessed Easter to All


HE HAS RISEN AND IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!

Wishing everyone reading this a most blessed and abundant Easter.



Christ rising from the dead after horrific suffering and being in a tomb for three days gives hope to our world.

He is the light of the world!


I was blessed to attend an Easter Vigil at church last night that is always inspirational and very meaningful.

Seeing more than 100 people holding lighted candles in a darkened church and a fire crackling on the altar was quite breathtaking.  




It symbolized that Christ is, indeed, the light of the world.

There was music, singing, a confirmation, and meaningful prayers.

The service evoked feelings of deep gratitude and immense peace.

Of all the gifts my parents and grandparents ever gave me, and there were many, the gift of faith is the greatest of all.


I imagine it will remain that way until I take my last breath on earth.



May each of you be filled with peace and joy this glorious Easter day!


A happy and love-filled  Easter to all!


WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER AMONG THE GREATEST GIFTS YOUR PARENTS EVER GAVE TO YOU?

Hopping to It!


More than bunnies are hopping this day before  Easter Sunday.



Lots of things are getting checked off the "to do"  list but many more still need checking.

Doing things calmly and leisurely sure makes a big difference. 


Here's a little run down of the weekend so far:

Chocolate eggs in the china basket      Check!


Jelly beans in pink dish.                       Check!


Easter "egg" welcome mat out on            Check!
front porch.

Bread toasted for the turkey stuffing.       Check!

Onions and celery chopped 
for stuffing .                                              Check!

Turnip peeled (thanks to hubs)                 Check!

Easter baskets wrapped in cellophane.     Check!




Polish babka (bread) purchased.              Check!

Still to go:

Make cheese braids.

Set dining room table.

Vacuum.


Make stuffing.

Clean.

Notice that last item.  

Yup. It's definitely last for a reason. 

It's nice to have things neat and clean but I don't particularly like getting them that way.

Anyway,  hope each of you has a really good day today as we prepare for Easter!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF EASTER?
