On Easter one year, I got to see my 5-year-old granddaughter, Julia. I wore my best suit for
the holiday.

Julia said, “Grandpa, you look so handsome today. Did you take a shower?”


==============================================

After dinner one night, I asked my son Jimmy to fetch a broom from the back porch so I could sweep the floor.
 Complaining, he said, “But it’s dark out there. I’m afraid.”

I said to him, “It’s OK, God is with you.”
Slowly Jimmy opened the porch door and said, “God, if you’re out there, would you hand me the broom?”

Easter blessings everyone!

I heard it before I saw what it was delivering, high winds battered the house bring more snow! Wind is still up but not so much snow now. A quiet reflective day here. I bought a wee ham and some asparagus to go with the rest of the dinner. Will be looking after neighbours dog and cat today.

Tomorrow we will head to the city for an appointment for hubby and visit with the kids and their new addition. Son calls him Tall Dark and Handsome and although I haven't met him I have seen photos of him and oh my , he is that!! A lovely 2 yr old Great Dane with impeccable manners. His head is above the table !

Enjoy your day with your family and friends..

Happy Easter everyone. 42° to start  the day but no sunshine, just a dark gray sky.

JENNY  I wonder about some doctors these days. Hard to find a good one. Have a safe trip to Arizona. I know you are worried about your Dad and only seeing him will give you a better peace of mind.

BUBBLE  thanks for the new page to start the month with. Love your Easter graphics and your jokes.

DON  Happy Easter to you while visiting in the area of the world where it all began.

AMY  Hope they enjoy their Great Dane. I have only seen them from a distance never up close and  I do know they are tall dogs and beautiful.

LLOYD  still do not know what today will be like, there was showers earlier but I can see the walks are drying.

Hi Everyone and Happy Easter to all.  We are going to have a beautiful day here with it getting up to 81 this afternoon.  I am going to Sunday School this morning but will not stay for the Church service as the family is gathering at noon for our Easter dinner.  We need to eat around noon as Scott has to be at work at 2 pm. 

I did watch the golf yesterday afternoon and then watched both of the basketball games.  While the second game was not very competitive with Villanova trouncing Kansas it was worth watching for the fantastic three-point shooting that Villanova displayed.

Pat sister finally got connected to the Internet yesterday afternoon and we spent an hour or so as I showed her how to do things with the computer.  I don't expect her to remember it all and we will continue to have training sessions for awhile.  I was able to see what she was doing or take control of her mouse and demonstrate which often works better than trying to explain.  That can be really exhausting work and I know we were both ready to stop after an hour or so.
 
Carol, do hope Marisio finally got to your place yesterday.  Nice you are going to have lunch with other folks. 

Gloria, I hope they have taken the snow out of your forecast for Monday.  I think they are expecting snow also where Lloyd lives in Missouri and my SIL lives.  I haven't read a Louis L'Amour book for a long time.  I am sure my SIL will enjoy the laptop.  I have told her to let me know of any changes she makes in the master password to LastPass or with AT&T or anything else that she will need to reference in the future.  I keep very detailed records of things and she has a tendency not to be very organized with things like passwords. 

Jenny, glad the sutures are out and it sounds like it was wise to consult with your doctor son before using the DuoDerm.  Everything in a doctor's office has a separate charge anymore like everything in a hospital.  I am surprised we don't get a separate charge for the paper the bill is printed on.  Is that being cynical?  :)

Lloyd, It has been many years since I was involved with an Easter egg hunt.  Hope you don't get too much snow and that it stays South of I-70.   

Jane, glad your daughter went to Church with you yesterday.  I so wish my son and granddaughter would attend Church with us or go to one of their choosing.  They both were raised in the Church.  I never give up hope that one of these days they will come back to it. 

June, hope you have a very nice Easter day.  Do you get a special Easter dinner today?   

Bubble, thanks for the lovely graphics and for starting the month off with a fresh page.  I liked the little funnies you posted. 

Don, Happy Easter to you and Bubble today. 

Amy, snow isn't a good way to start April.  Your tea biscuits looked very much like the regular biscuits we have around here except I don't think ours has the sugar in them.  That sounds like some dog your son has.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Happy Easter Day!

I've been to church at 8 a.m. We had a baptism and the regular Easter Day service and then breakfast after that.  When I was ready, I left to pick up some yellow tulips (my mother's favorite and what my dad always gave her on Easter) then I drove the 15 miles to the cemetery where they are both buried and gave them the flowers and had a word or two with them.  I always feel their presence when I talk to them and it doesn't have to be at the cemetery. 

On my way home, it rained and I realized that one of my wiper blades was falling apart so I stopped at WM and picked up new ones.  I'm going to my son's for a late dinner and he'll put them on for me. 

When I got home, I put some things in the oven that I'll need to take over to my son's and gave the doggies a snack and now I'm here....relaxing until it's time to go.  Pretty busy for a day off, right?  But i'm riding on a cloud.

Wishing all my dear, good Cyber Friends a Very Blessed Easter Day. I will go down for Services at 10 o'clock and then on to a scrumptious dinner.

My son Gary and his wife started their day at 5 a.m. A few years back Gary started Sunrise Services at their local park and it has grown to 400 worshipers attending. He expects even more this year. The Sun is not shining, but we know it is there, though we do not see it,Just as we know God is with us all, even though we see Him not.Thanks be to God.

Time for me to get ready for the day. Have a glorious day dear hearts. June

I hope Everyfriend Everywhere has had a Blessed Easter Day.

I was up early to get a ham going in the slow cooker.  Both sons/wives went to church with me.  it was a wonderful service featuring the Wind Ensemble, which is made up of multi-musical-talented high school students in the congregation.
Plan A was to come here to eat before sons/wives went to the in-laws.  However, temperatures in the 30's cancelled the fishing trip at one place and an Easter egg hunt at the other.
So everybody hung around and visited until about 3:30.   

'Twas a lovely day.....but getting colder!  Supposed to be a hard freeze overnight.

This was just shared with me and now I am sharing with you. :)





Easter Trilogy of Poems
ON A RUGGED SPLINTERED CROSS

On a rugged, splintered cross, my Jesus chose to die
On that dark hill that day, heaven heard the Father cry
For the first time in forever, separation drove apart
The Father and the Son, how it broke the Father's heart
This was the only way, it was the Father's plan
To bring down salvation, to this sinning man
He gave His only Son, sacrificed upon the tree
He paid the price I couldn't pay, He gave His life for me
So I must remember, not only at Easter time
The price He paid upon the tree was rightfully mine
He removed my sin stains and washed me white as snow
Now He's made a glad heart, out of my heart of woe
For He rose again, and lives in heaven above
Pouring out on me, His sacrificial love
He died that dark, sad day, upon the rugged tree
To purchase the salvation for a sinner such as me
As He hung there dying, He cried for all the world to hear
"Father forgive them" fell upon each sinners ear
Those words are still heard today, echoing through eternity
From my Savior on the cross, on the rugged, splintered tree
They were meant for everyone, for all who would believe
Who would accept His blood was shed, for each one to receive
As He hung there dying, in pain and agony
He looked through the years to come, and He saw you and me
In His time of great sorrow, separation from God above
He looked not at Himself, but looked out with eyes of love
He looked out and He saw, each person that would be
Then upon that cruel cross, He gave His life for you and me
 
-------
 
THE TOMB

They took my Savior from the cross, placed Him in a tomb
This Man of Galilee, offspring of Mary's womb
His broken, battered body, bruised and lifeless there
Placed in a borrowed tomb, blood matted in His hair
Laid out in death shrouds, a stone across the door
While heaven and hell fought a short and bitter war
Guards were set by the stone, to watch both day and night
There was one on the left side, and one on the right
But no mere mortals, could stop God's almighty plan
The death of His Son, to bring life to mortal man
Three days my Savior spent, body in the grave
Then He rose again, so He could my soul save
He rose victorious, the winner forevermore
He did this for me, so that I could soar
Believe in His death and resurrection from the grave
This He did for me and you, so He could our souls save
Oh Precious Lord Jesus, You gave Your life for me
You paid the price for every sin, for all eternity
Thank you is so inadequate, for all that You have done
But thank you Precious Father, for sending down Your Son
 
-------
 
WORDS FROM THE CROSS

Healing words spoken, from the midst of great pain
As in untold agony, His very life did drain
Hung on a cross, Jesus died for my sin
In horrendous suffering, the victory to win
To the thief hung beside Him, forgiveness and grace
Saying he would be with Him, in the paradise place
To the crowd that swarmed `round, the executioners too
"Father forgive them, they know not what they do"
Those words have spanned centuries, down to you and me
Forgiveness was bought, on Calvary's tree
As He hung in agony, the pain at it's worst
My Savior cried out with the words "I thirst"
Bitter wine and gall, were lifted to His lip
Mingling with His blood, for Jesus to sip
Looking down, He saw His mother crying there
He commissioned His disciple to treat her with care
Saying to her "woman - behold your son"
"Son behold your mother, for the time to come"
Then came the words that broke His heart
As for the first time Father and Son did part
"My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me"
As the agony paled from that of being hung on the tree
His Father had to turn, His back on His Son
As the whole world's sin was placed on the One
The only one perfect, became sin for me
So in His mercy, I could be free
"Father into Your hands, I commit My spirit"
If you listen closely, you still can hear it
Then He bowed His head, this mortal Jesus Christ
With the words "it is finished", He gave up His life
His beaten body then sagged on the tree
The most horrible death, but He did it for me
In the midst of His pain, He reached out to forgive
So everybody would have, the chance to live
His lifeless body was laid in the grave
This blessed Jesus, who was born to save
The stone set in place, guards posted there
The garments of death, my Jesus did wear
But then Easter morning, He rose from the dead
The grave clothes were empty, even the one for His head
He came back to life, as He promised He would
The price was paid, as only He could
The healing words spoken, hanging on the cross
As He with His life, had paid the great cost
Hallelujah, my Savior paid then for me
So I could be His, for all eternity
The gift of salvation, is open to all
If you but listen and answer His call
Give Him your broken dreams and your heartaches too
Give Him your life, for He truly loves you
Then we'll always be together my friend
In heaven someday, the land without end
The price paid long ago on Calvary's tree
Where Jesus died for you and for me

Good evening, And a HAPPY EASTER To all my good friends. The day started out with light rain. Also the weather person is saying maybe 4inches of snow to morrow ans maybe next Sat. the same. I think Mother Nature, is trying to have fun with us. Feb. was warm, March the weather is awful.

Bubble thanks for the lovey graphics and the start of a new Page.

Amy, your post, for Easter was beautiful Thanks

Gloria and Amy, we had a Great Dane, she lived for 12 years. When we got her our Vet, ask  why we got a GD, As they do not live much over 7 years. WE had to put her to sleep, as her back legs completely gave out.

Larry. Sound like you were having a nice EAster dinner with your family

I had a long day starting with church.  Dot and I could not go out for brunch for two reasons - (1) the restaurant was closed today and (2) Annie was to pick me up about noon to go to Holland and there wouldn't have been enough time for brunch.  There were six adults and two babies at our delicious dinner.  When I left for church, our temperature was 28 degrees and there was no way I was going to wear my winter coat on Easter, so I wore my spring coat.  The distance from car to church was short so I had no problem.  The same from the car to James' and Alicia's home in Holland.  All in all, it was a lovely day with a beautiful blue sky.

I forgot to post this this morning.

   Burial Cloth of Jesus


Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection?
The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes.The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded and was placed at the head of that stony coffin.

Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, 'They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!'

Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see. The other disciple out ran Peter and got there first. He stopped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in.

Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to the side.

Was that important? Absolutely! Is it really significant? Yes! In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day.

The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every  Jewish boy knew this tradition.

When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it. The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table until the master was finished...

Now if the master was done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers and his mouth and clean his beard, and would then wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table.

The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days the wadded napkin meant,  "I'm finished..."
But if the master got up from the table and folded his napkin and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because....the folded napkin meant
"I'm coming back!"  AND  SO  HE  SHALL

Good morning everyone..

We are off to the city this morning for an appointment for hubby, since it is a two part appointment we will nip out and see the kids. We will also meet Tall dark and handsome, their new Great Dane.

Weather is still cold and the weather guessers are calling for snow tomorrow and I have an appointment to get my snow tires off then.

Hope everyone had a great Easter..

Enjoy your day

Good morning Everyfriend!  I woke to something I wasn't expecting....SNOW.  I did not realize that we were expecting snow today and was very surprised.  Since there is no school today, I made arrangements to be at my son's house in time for him to go to work.  Kiran had a friend sleep over with her and I'm going to be there so they don't have to get up early.  The plan is that when they do get up, I will take them to McDonalds for lunch and then drop them at her friend's grandparents farm for the rest of the day.  Since it's big flakes and doesn't seem to be laying on the roads, I'm going to try to do as planned.We'll see when 8:30 rolls around. 

That's my plan for the day!  Then I'm free for the rest of the day.  I wonder what I'll get into.

Don't know if I told you all,  my brother came home from the hospital on Saturday and is being treated for ulcers. at home. 

I had dinner at my son's yesterday and it was delicious ham and Sarah made scalloped potatoes over my recipe because that's "what your son loves best with ham."  Everything was very good and the day was a beautiful Spring day.  And now it's winter again!  Oh well!  That's life!  Have a happy day!

No snow here, thank goodness.  Easter Sunday was nice.  Not a full sun all day but it was warm with sun and clouds playing tag with each other. 

I had a long, nice telephone call with my younger son and dil in northern VA.  Caught up with all the news about them and my two grandsons.  That was a treat.

The rest of the day was quiet and peaceful and enjoyable.  The dinner wasn't festive but it was good and filling.

It is a little cloudy this morning but no snow, thank goodness!  The ever-constant laundry needs to be done and a few household chores, also, along with watering the grass seed and hoping it will grow.  Perhaps I'll watch a little of the championship B Ball tonight but can't get too involved in it since all of the local teams have been eliminated.  Did anyone watch "Jesus Christ Superstar" last night?  I thought it was interesting.  The rock style is 'way past my era, of course, so it is unusual for me to watch something like that but I was curious.  It is still not my style but I was intrigued by the production. 

Jane, I'm so glad that your brother is home and doing better.  My dil had ulcers and was in so much pain that she thought she was having a heart attack and called EMS.  They discovered the ulcer in the hospital and immediately began treatment for them.  She eventually recovered and never had any more trouble with them, I'm happy to say.

Hi Everyone.  It is a beautiful morning here in South Carolina. It is in the mix-50's and headed up to 85 this afternoon.  This is the big week for this area as the Master's Golf Tournament activities begin this morning with an event for young people.  Many folks in the Augusta-North Augusta area rent out their homes for the week and make very large profits.  Many of the restaurants depend on it for getting their businesses on the profitable side for the year.  People buy tickets for the early days of the week to watch the pros have practice rounds before the actual tournament begins early on Thursday morning. 

Only two things on my schedule for today.  The first is to go to AT&T to have Pat's cell phone card checked and to see if I can find her an acceptable phone as the VOCA has stopped making or receiving calls, which sort of ruins the purpose of a phone.  She doesn't want a smart phone.  While at AT&T I will see if I can get them to unlock my iPhone so it is not limited to using AT&T as the carrier. Then after 3 pm this afternoon the AC repairman will be here to work on the air conditioner, which isn't cooling.  This evening I will watch the men's championship basketball game if I can stay awake as it doesn't start until after 9 pm. 

We had a very nice Easter dinner yesterday.  Our granddaughter did a fine job on the turkey and the chocolate pies she made and the other dishes also turned out great.  We have enough left overs for our dinner tonight plus a little more turkey that will last for another day or so.

Jane, nice to see you had a pleasant Easter Sunday.  We do need good working windshield wipers.  The last time I got some I was shocked at the price. Hope you will be able to carry out your plan for today. 

June, our Church also had a sunrise service at 7 am out on a property owned by the Methodist Church.  They apparently had a very nice turnout for the morning and it was a beautiful day with the sun arising at the right time. 

Lloyd, it has been some time since I have lived in Missouri but was thinking you were located North of I-70.  It sounds like you didn't have very pleasant weather yesterday. 

Callie, nice that your sons and DIL's went to church with you yesterday and were able to stay and visit after your meal at your home.  My SIL in Independence, Missouri sent a couple of pictures of the snow outside her apartment yesterday.  I had to write her back and tell her we were at 80 degrees yesterday.  She didn't see any humor in my reply.  :)

Amy, I have copied the Easter Trilogy of Poems in case I do a Devotional for our Sunday School class again next year around Easter.  Thanks for sharing them. It sounds like you might have a long day in the city today.  However, nice you can spend some time with your kids and meet the Great Dane. It sounds like you might be removing your snow tires a bit prematurely.   

deAngel, we did have a nice Easter dinner.  The kids weren't here very long as Scott had to be at work at 2 pm and it was almost 1 pm before everything was ready to eat since the two casseroles had to be baked when they got here. 

Gloria, I also copied out the piece on the "Burial Cloth of Jesus".  I remember reading it before but had forgotten the story behind it.   

Phyllis, nice that your son and DIL contacted you as sure that made your day extra special yesterday.  I am constantly amazed at how much laundry we always seem to have.  I expect Villanova to win the game tonight but we never know and that is why they play the game.  I just hope it is a good competitive game.  I got in on the last few second of the women's basketball final last night.  It was tied with just 3 second to go and the Notre Dame player threw up a shot and it went in to give the national title to Notre Dame.  I did not wat the "Jesus Christ Superstar" program as had read about it and it just didn't seem appealing to me.  However, it is really something for them to be able to do a live long show like that on TV.

Good morning everyone, 30°. Easter Sunday we had a sunny day, not too warm but nice. This morning it is snowing. Oh well 'tis New England and weather is always changing. Then again Mother Nature has been fickle this year. Just heard on TV that tomorrow we can expect rain.  This time the snow is more along the shoreline than here, they showed the roads there and they are covered. Here inland the roads are wet-no snow on them.

No time for replying, woke late and my CNA will be here in half an hour so better get dressed. Have a great day.
