Hello there dearies..
Hope you had a great Easter weekend..
What a lovely time of year..
A few days when the world takes the time to celebrate the wonderful hope that we have in Jesus..
To count our blessings as Christians in a world today that sometimes seems to have lost their hope..
Misplaced it is really more accurate..
Jesus paid a price for our souls to give us a hope beyond the grave..
So blessed to realize all over again that because He lives we can face tomorrow!
So love that old song..
The peace He gives is what makes the difference to Christians..
You can't explain it but when you go through the storms of life and call on His Name then He is there with you and gives you that real peace that only He can give..
The storm may still be going on but His love gets you through..
He is our refuge..
Spring is here in Eastern Canada...
The snow is leaving..
Thank the Lord..
Ready for sun, gardens and clothes blowing on the line.. smile..
There were a few decorations around here for a week or so..
Then on Good Friday we headed to our daughter's house..
As always her home was decorated beautifully!
Dinner was great!
The boys were there and it was so nice to see them..
They are busy with university which will soon be over for the summer..
Shonda made these little baskets for each place setting..
So sweet, eh?
Then we had a beautiful service on Sunday with worship to the King of kings..
On Monday we had Mom and my Step-Father over for dinner..
So blessed to still have her with us..
She brought me a loaf of homemade bread, a big package of napkins, cookie tins and a big bowl ... smile..
She still makes her own bread quite often..
Isn't that wonderful?
She loved looking at anything new there might be here..
Some pantry lights, window herbs and a bunting...
We had a Turkey dinner and enjoyed the afternoon visiting..
Then we drove down to Sussex to have dinner with our oldest son, Trevor for supper with his family..
It was delicious!
The boys had their girlfriends there and we had a good time...
Trevor had to work this Easter so we couldn't seem to get together all at the same time..
That happens some years..
And of course our youngest son is out west..
Thought about him all weekend.. Miss him...
I made a new soup from Marion Cunningham's cookbook..
Mustard Green Soup..
It was good but I probably won't make it again as Terry wouldn't even try it.. I liked it but not enough to make it again..
Mustard greens are a bit bitter..smile..
Easter is over for another year but the hope of the happenings of that Easter 2000 years ago are with us every day..
Giving us peace and hope...
So glad you dropped by once again my friends and look forward to hearing from you all..
Thanks for your sweet comments.. I appreciate each and every one..
