A couple of conversations since Sunday-
"I'm so glad Easter is over!"
"Yea, done with all the eggs and bunny things."
Sadly, these comments were from Christian friends.
The liturgical church year has us at the
beginning of the Easter season.
We have finished LENT.
The fifty days after Easter are the Easter season.
And when we live with the Resurrection Hope in our hearts-
EVERYDAY IS EASTER!!
For the first time in 32 years- we traveled for Easter.
Parish ministry always keeps you close to home base.
The school schedule did not help much as
Spring Break was always HOLY WEEK-
a crazy busy week in church and family living
for full time church workers.
So we went south-
to North Carolina
and visited with married daughter, Jessica
and her husband, Dan.
|Yellow tulips brought grace to a meal including:|
Roasted asparagus and Nutella nests for dessert
|Chef Dan and his "secret" asparagus recipe|
Parmesan cheese, drizzled olive oil, half a lemon squeezed over,
salt and pepper and roasted in the oven
|Jessica tried a Pinterest recipe---- think I have to find that.|
|The find of our Thrifting day was this dresser to use as a buffet.|
Just perfect for some great paint techniques to bring it into modern day living.
|A Bunny I made for Jessica dated 1996-|
ah----17 years ago....
|Oh I LOVE PANSIES-|
spotted in pots at Birkdale Village
|And with White Hyacinths|
A lovely respite indeed-
and a wonderful reminder that I am choosing to
Live Easter Everyday.
