I have no excuse for not posting for so long. My main reason is busy, busy & just off running around. I've said it before & you all know I like to read other blogs more than I like to write on my own, but I was feeling a little tug of withdrawal so popped on here to jot down a few words.
Recently I have discovered IM on my email & have been having some fun with my daughter and granddaughter chatting back & forth in real time. Its so hard to spend time with family any more and since technology is so convenient its one way to stay connected to those we love.
The word is out the Robins are back in Mich. I haven't actually seen one but I have heard them & my good friend Deb is so excited she is about to burst you should go over & read about her joy in seeing the first robin of the season. The snow is leaving & the sun has been shining & that alone is making me feel joyous. Plus it is the Easter season one of my favorite holidays. Seems to me it just sort of jumped up & suddenly happened this year. Its early I know but we have Palm Sunday, St. Patricks day & Holy week all rolled up at once. What Joy.... This is when we turn our thoughts to thanks to God for His sacrifice of giving His son as a propitiation for us. That's a big word but simply means Jesus took every sin ever committed by us or anyone else upon Himself so that we can be white as snow before God the Father as if we never sinned at all. We have no idea how much He truly suffered for each one of us but can only imagine, & all the time He had our name on His mind. Isaiah 49:16 I will not forget you, I have carved you on the palm of my hand. What a comforting verse.
I hope each & every one of you enjoys this Easter to the fullest & not get to caught up in the commercial aspect that the enemy would love to entice on us with choclolate & bunnies & egg hunts. Its all about HIM ...
