I hope you’ve had a special week remembering what Christ did for us over 2,000 years ago. The past several years I’ve read some kind of devotional book or other book leading up to Easter. I didn’t do that this year. But I spent some time going over verses about Jesus death on the cross for our sins and resurrection.
As always there are good things scattered like seed during the week. We join Susanne and others at Living to Tell the Story to share our blessings.
1. Timothy’s birthday. He has come such a long way since surprising us with an early arrival eight years ago. You’d never know to look at him that he was a preemie. I’m so thankful for him and pray God will always have His hand on him.
2. Not cooking. I know, I mention this often. But this week, I’ve only made dinner twice! One night was Timothy’s birthday celebration.One night we watched Timothy so Jason and Mittu could do things for his birthday, and Mittu made dinner for us that night. Three nights, either Jim or I had a hankering for some kind of take-out. And Sunday after church, Jim thought he had a free entree from one of those places where they punch a card every time you order. He realized when he checked out that he didn’t have said card–he must have used it the last time. I like the food we eat at home, but I also like something different sometimes as well as a night off from cooking, planning and clean-up.
3. Dogwoods blooming. We have a few in the back yard, but they are all over the neighborhood.
5. This song, Calvary Invitation, has been on my mind for the last few days. The version I listen to is on the album Creator, Redeemer, and King by The Wilds Christian Camp. The repeating line, “Linger for a moment more,” goes along with Maree’s post about not rushing past the cross to get to Easter.
I hope you and yours have a wonderful Easter weekend.
