Outside my window….it is overcast and the ground is trying to dry up from a good rain we had last night – everything is really greening up and Hubbie’s fertilizer really should be working on the yard!
I am thinking…about Easter this week! Such a wonderful week for believers!
I am thankful for….the death, burial and RESURRECTION of my Savior – and that I heard the gospel message from a young age. I was twelve when I accepted Christ but I grew up in a Christian home (so thankful) and heard of Christ’s love for me as early as I can remember. I am thankful for my parents, our church back then, my pastor and my earliest Sunday school teacher who made such an impact on me.
I am wearing…Christmas socks!! so goofy but they are comfy on my feet:)
I am remembering…all the Easters spent in North Carolina with my parents when the children were little. Mom’s food was amazing and, in addition to egg hunts, Mom and Dad always had pinatas at Easter for the kids! To say they loved it would be a huge understatement!
I am going….to get a lot done at home this week (there now I am committed…its written on the blog!)
I am reading…the beginning of my new study for the rest of the semester at Bible study. Just getting started but lots of good information. Its called “The Trusted Friend.”
I am hoping…my sweet senior friend, Paul, comes home from the hospital this week – and that good, reliable and consistent care can be arranged for him when he does. There are so many needs for he and his sweet wife.
On my mind….what Jordan will be doing this first Easter (another holiday!) away from home. I’m sensing a trend of separated holidays – and that makes me sad.
From the kitchen… planning Easter menus – for myself as well as helping Erica plan hers. Won’t be surprised if they are very similar:)
Around the house…not much going on…we have been spending our time, energy (and money) working outside – which is okay because we both enjoy that!
Plans for the week….Wednesday night at church, our pastor will be sharing his photos…and stories!…from his recent trip to the Holy Land. I am really looking forward to seeing and hearing it all!
One of my favorite things…..Cadbury eggs…the original ones! When something is so yummy…why do they always have to keep changing the recipe?? Cadbury eggs came out when I was in college (long time ago) and my girlfriend and I were addicted. We were also broke:) and these indulgent Easter treats were our huge splurge. Not only are these candies still delicious…they remind me of Debbie and so many great memories!! Do you have a favorite Easter candy?? I have to admit I do NOT like jelly beans but those robin’s eggs are pretty yummy as are Stouffer’s marshmallow eggs…but Cadburys are the best!
