Yardly There...

Our yard is nearly there (yardly there)!  Got it all nice and scalped today.  Ouch.  That sounds like it might hurt! LoL  Actually, the yard likes it.  We should say the yard got a short new do for summer.  Got edged, too!  Any-who, got that done.

Got all sorts of things planted.  Everything is all cleaned out, cleaned up and freshly ready for a magnificent springtime!!!

SEE!!!

Obits...

CREtterLorenaEllison

My great grandmother Lorena died when my grandfather was 2.  As I read her obituary today from 1908.  They were married 6 years and had two precious boys.  Bertram & Hugh.  She was saved in 1901, so was a believer for 7 years prior to her death.

I hope you can see (click on it to open in a new window) this sweet obituary written over 100 years ago.  Beautiful.  I wish I had know her.  She sounds so loved.  I know I would have loved her, too!

God's Will...

The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:17

.

.

I just fall down on my knees in awe every day at how God works.  I mean, I know he is able to do all.  I think when we see it though it is just grand.  It is like everything in the world is right! 

 

God's will...how I fail miserably to do what God has planned for me by making the wrong choice.  In these times I seek forgiveness.  Many times though I do listen.  I do make the right choice.  God blesses me in these times by just getting to watch Him at work.  WOW!!! DOUBLE WOW!!! TRIPLE WOW!!!

.

Wow, it is raining and I need to dry the bleachers off.  Can't believe the sprinklers came on while I was walking across campus!  Sure wish I could help soak that spill up!  Well, with today's Fresh Find, you can do all these plus more!  Keep the pill towel in your car, pocket or purse!!!

I find annual or yearbook artwork very interesting.  It says so much about the graphic design of the time.

I like this t-shirt where the landscape is made from shapes.  It is my Fresh Find today.  Green and reminds me of springtime!

Easter time...

Easter 59 

Here we are Easter of 1959.  I would be 3, nearly 4.  My brother would be 11.  Aren't we just darling?  LOL  On Easter Sunday we were always in worship at First Baptist Church.  When we returned home the Easter Bunny had been in our bedroom.

.

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Easter's on its way

Bringin' ev'ry girl and boy
A basketful of Easter joy
Things to make your Easter
Bright and gay

He's got jelly beans for Tommy
Colored eggs for sister Sue
There's an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet too. Oh!

Here' comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity
Happy Easter Day

Look at him hop and listen to him say,
"Try to do the things you should"
Maybe if you're extra good
He'll roll lots of Easter eggs your way

You'll wake up on Easter morning
And you'll know that he was there
When you find those choc'late bunnies
That he's hiding ev'rywhere, Oh!

Here' comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity
Happy Easter Day.

.

Easter is my favorite time of year.  I love the new birth in everything created that we celebrate and enjoy this special Holy holiday.

Joy Dawned Again on Easter Day

Joy dawned again on Easter Day,
The sun shone out with fairer ray,
When, to their longing eyes restored
Th’Apostles saw their risen Lord.

His risen flesh with radiance glowed;
His wounded hands and feet He showed:
Those scars their silent witness gave
That Christ was risen from the grave.

O Jesus, King of gentleness,
Do Thou our inmost hearts possess;
And we to Thee will ever raise
The tribute of our grateful praise.

Jesus Who art the Lord of all,
In this our Easter festival
From every weapon death can wield
Thine own redeemed, Thy people, shield.

All praise, O risen Lord, we give
To Thee, who dead, again dost live;
To God the Father equal praise,
And God the Holy Ghost, we raise.

.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.  1 Peter 1:3

I think my Fresh Find looks like fun, fun for everyone...kid! :O)

Eating wild berries...

I want to go where wild berries grow.  My grandmother's sister's family lived on the New Mexico . Arizona border in a town not far from the Mexican border named Rodeo . New Mexico. We went there many times in my growing up years.  All along that trip there were wild berries growing by the road.  It was desert, hot, dry, miserable, but the berries were great.  I remember that as if it were yesterday.  One time at her house we walked to the small orchard and ate grapes, yummy grapes.

There was one store and it had a wood decking and one step up to the porch where we went in to get a cold drink.  Oh, the one store was NOT within walking distance.  Nothing was within walking distance out there. 

We usually ended up in the Lincoln National Park after visiting.  I understand why now.  From way over 100 degree desert days to the cool mountain air...refreshing for a vacation to be complete!

.

This girl is sweeter than any wild berries!
