Easter 2014

“The angel spoke to the women: “There is nothing to fear here. I know you’re looking for Jesus, the One they nailed to the cross. He is not here. He was raised, just as he said. Come and look at the place where he was placed.
 “Now, get on your way quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He is risen from the dead. He is going on ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there.’ That’s the message.”
Matthew 28

The picture of us is from several years ago when Anne was little. Wishing you all a truly special Easter.  See you on Tuesday!

My Easter Decorations

Since it is the day before Easter, I thought I would show you some of my Easter knick-knacks. For some reason, little bicycles are really big in decorating now. So I have a boy for an Easter kitchen table centerpiece, and a little pink girl bunny in the living room. I added the carrots to her basket.
I got this egg holder a few years ago.
Cute lambs I made with the girls from cloths pins and cotton balls.
The paper hand print wreath I put up on the door every year...the little hands are bigger now!

And my little white basket of eggs that I had a bit of fun editing.
My small Easter Basket on the end table.
And I could not resist posting this Easter Dog made of wicker, even though it is not mine. I passed it one day awhile back.

“He decorated the building with precious stones and gold from Parvaim. Everything was coated with gold veneer: rafters, doorframes, walls, and doors. Cherubim were engraved on the wall.”
2 Chronicles

Fields Of Gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
Gordon Sumner (Sting)

The other day as we rounded a bend, we passed this gorgeous field of gold. I claimed that it had to be barley because of the Sting song, Phil said that wheat is gold as well, and that agrees with this bible verse. So we sill do not know what it is. Any ideas? Whatever it is, it was a wonderful vision, something I won't soon forget. If we were both younger, we might have chanced to actually walk in the fields of gold.

“Paint the wheat fields golden. Creation was made for this! Drench the plowed fields; soak the dirt clods with rainfall as harrow and rake bring her to blossom and fruit.”
Psalm 65

“Offer prayers unceasing to him; bless him from morning to night. Fields of golden grain in the land, cresting the mountains in wild exuberance, Cornucopias of praise, praises springing from the city like grass from the earth.”
Psalm 72

Blood Red

I suppose you have already heard that there was an eclipse tonight and the moon would turn blood red! We went out snapping, but it has been cloudy and raining, as you can see.
I did get a few good pictures waiting for the clouds to pass. But none of them red.
Since I never saw the Blood Red Moon, I tinkered with one of my pictures to give you one, background and all. Now we have all seen the Blood Red moon!
Joel 2
