Happy Easter Monday to all!
We had a lovely day yesterday. Our church has resumed in person worship and though it forces me to be organized and make reservations, I can do it.
It always amazes me (and Jay) how we learn something with each sermon from Fr. Jim that either is hidden in plain site in the scripture, or that we just never gave any thought. One thing is that the disciples, though they traveled with Jesus, saw every single miracle, listened to him speak, and simply enjoyed his presence, were usually hunkered down in fear somewhere when the going got tough. Then there was Mary Magdalene. Pegged by the Pope in an earlier century as a former prostitute, a claim not verified in the scriptures, she was Jesus’ FIRST apostle. SHE spread the news first to the other apostles that Jesus had survived death. SHE went to the tomb and wouldn’t give up. That’s something to think about. So I am.
Too bad we didn’t take any pictures at church, we were all dressed up. It was so nice to see and talk to everyone!
We were invited to a special Easter dinner with friends who are like family. Amy makes Martha Stewart look like a beginner in the beautiful home, table setting and delicious food department. Well, all departments, really. She has that special something. They are really special people and I’m so happy and grateful that we are friends.
So today? We are expecting company later. More on that tomorrow. We started the day watching the dog who doesn’t wander chase some deer in our field.
I so appreciate the dry weather lately. It makes livestock care so much more enjoyable. The alpacas like it too! I think we have a few more days this week of it. Thank you, God!
I hope you are able to enjoy it like these guys!
So what’s with the quote about the itch? I was bitten by a tick last week and though I have been on doxycycline since, the site of the bite is so itchy and getting itchier. I think I need to have it looked at again and will squeeze that in today. It’s red and swollen and the itch is spreading. Always something.
Have a blessed day!
