Out Of The Blue

The Virginia Bluebells have been blooming, and they are so sweet! Here are some that are just a few blocks away.

“When I next looked, oh! Above the dome over the heads of the cherubim-angels was what looked like a throne, sky-blue, like a sapphire!”

We passed by this the other day. Quite a few old cars can smoke trying to climb over Afton Mountain. There was already a man standing & watching, and as we rounded the bend, the fire engines & rescue vehicles were racing there. I never saw or read it on the news, so I assume no one was hurt.

Sunday Sunset

If you look closely, you may see some birds in the trees.

“Now is the time to unite the soul and the world. Now is the time to see the sunlight dancing as one with the shadows. “

Pajama Party

Last night we went to see Jazz in her school play "Pajama Party". All the kids were wearing pajamas, including the music teacher!

After the play, we all went Chick-Fil-A. This was one of the bags.

“Chilling out on the bed in your hotel room watching television, while wearing your own pajamas, is sometimes the best part of a vacation.”

Fence Of Cups

We came across this fence at a garden center.

Look closely. It is made by sticking Styrofoam cups through the holes in the fence.

They that sow in tears shall reap joy.

Sunday Sightings

We saw these yesterday. The first three pictures were all in the same yard.

Easter Day 2019

My header is from the lilac bush in our yard. The family came over for Easter today. Here are Phil & I with our granddaughters.

We had an Easter egg hunt.

Then played toss the ring over the bunny's ear.

Me & son Mike

I showed them my bird that will balance his beak on the tip of your finger or the edge of a table.

Anne Marie got this iridescent Thinking Putty in her basket.

Bye from us for now! How was YOUR Easter?

Easter Sunday 2019

After the Sabbath, as the first light of the new week dawned, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to keep vigil at the tomb. Suddenly the earth reeled and rocked under their feet as God’s angel came down from heaven, came right up to where they were standing. He rolled back the stone and then sat on it. Shafts of lightning blazed from him. His garments shimmered snow-white. The guards at the tomb were scared to death. They were so frightened, they couldn’t move.
5-6 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.

Matthew 28


 On the outskirts of town, we happened to pass this building. It used to be a gas station. But what a difference now! What was going on? One...
