The last couple days my newsfeed has been filled with posts of beautiful pink and white blossoms from around the world. It’s Spring, my favourite season and it’s peak time for cherry blossoms around the world. From Vancouver, Canada to Washington, DC to many parts of China & Japan. Such beautiful images makes my heart long for these places…especially China where I could walk amongst beautiful trees all filled with blossoms.
Last year we were in DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival. That was April last year. This year it is a little early because of the mild winter we’ve had. Oh how I miss it. I wish we had places here in Nova Scotia that were full of cherry trees. I guess I’ll just have to wait for our crab apple trees to blossom…usually in May.
Here are a few images of my favourite trees.
Ahh… so pretty.
Today is Easter Monday and still a holiday for some. We are heading to my parents for dinner with some of the family. These days there is ALWAYS some one working. It’s hard to get everyone together.
Have a great week friends!
Easter isn’t about eggs or baskets or chocolate and new clothes or toys or Spring, and believe it or not…it’s not about the bunny! Although all those things are fun and are a part of what we do at Easter time, it’s part of our tradition. We enjoy it all with our families. I LOVE bunnies and LOVE decorating that way for Easter
BUT… Easter is NOT about the bunny
EASTER is all about JESUS! It’s about his RESURRECTION.
So while you enjoy today with your family and having fun and exchanging some Easter gifts and treats and having delicious meals…
…don’t forget why we celebrate Easter.
Wishing you a Wonderful Easter Weekend with your family! We had a great day. Church and Easter Brunch and David even went for a quick ride.
Some days are nice just to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee. And even better if you can enjoy it over great conversation and lots of laughs with dear friends. Wanda & Curt are home from Indiana for a little visit. Actually they were home for a really exciting reason…they are grandparents now!! We are so happy for them. Their grandson is a little doll.
They head back to Indiana next week, so it was nice to get together and catch up.
Oh girlfriend, thanks for the great chit chat…sure will be nice when you’re back!
It’s a quiet Friday this week because It’s Good Friday! My thoughts are on the cross and the Great sacrifice that was made for all mankind on this day.
On Sunday I watched FOX’s live two-hour musical “Passion”, recounting the last hours of Jesus’ life for a national TV audience “live” from New Orleans. It was a different modern portrayal of Easter. At least the reason we celebrate Easter. There were many mixed reviews of this program. Many felt is was no better than a Super Bowl half time show or something off American Idol.
Personally, I loved it! I thought it would reach a different audience with the message of the gospel and their need for Jesus. Even though the songs and music were not necessarily “Christian” and more pop music, they were fitting and appropriate for the scenes. Artists like Trisha Yearwood played Mary ( Jesus’ mother) Chris Daughtry played Judas ( Jesus’ betrayer), Seal was Pontius Pilate. And many other famous artists… Jesus was played by Jencarlos Canela. This is my first time hearing him sing and his voice was amazing. The setting was the very same account of so many years ago but played out as if it happened today, in 2016 in New Orleans.And while the reviews might not have been great, it was done by a group that have a heart for people and wanted the message to get out to people that Jesus and the gospel and the need to have faith in him is still very relevant for Today 2016. I loved the music!
If you get chance check it out…maybe today. Just go over to Fox.com to stream it.
Enjoy your long weekend!
Well James is back after having an adventure filled Spring Break. James loves to travel as much as I do and even though we’ll all go to Cuba for the Wedding in April, he wanted to go somewhere for his break in March. So he flew to Toronto but then where?
Where to go? And without spending a lot of money.
So he is full of resources and talked to his cousin who’s husband works for Air Canada. They can fly ‘Stand by” anywhere Air Canada flies for a relatively low price. He asked if they were up to some travel for March Break and they were. So…the destination they chose. The land down under…
James and his cousin Rachel have been wanting to see Australia together for years! So James, Rachel and her husband Gerald and baby Kiet spent 4 days in Sydney, Australia. They had a great time and lots of adventures and fun getting “stand by” flights. Gerald actually had to stay an extra day in Sydney while James, Rachel and the baby flew home. James finally made it home to Bridgewater yesterday a few days later than expected. And of course with a big smile on his face.( travel does that to a person)
Here are a couple pics from his phone and one from his camera. There hasn’t been time to get all the gorgeous ones from his camera yet.
Don’t you just feel like you’re there?
And it’s soon time for the next adventure! Glad you’re home safely James!
