"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

from snow to salvation




They say that it's supposed to be sixty degrees Sunday.  Hmm.  I guess crazier things have happened...











Lot's of creating going on around here.  Sticks and fiber are taking form, anxious to see their new homes. "Only 2 more days" I tell them.


John 11:25-26
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life.  Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.  Do you believe this?

  12. Hi Debbie! You're so sweet! I just meant I'd like some more posts about the pups! Listen to me, getting so bossy and demanding. I'm so dog deprived, I like to look at my blog friends' dogs.

  15. You and your daughters have done a special job with those crosses. They are truly beautiful and I can see how they could be used to decorate, especially at this time of year.

    My oldest son would carve the best crosses when he was younger.

  16. I love all the bird nests and petite Easter baskets and crosses. We are a blissful 65* now, but we are expecting snow tonight and/or tomorrow. Might be a white Easter here.

  23. Hiya, Deb! Blessings to you and your family this Resurrection Weekend! Looks like you still have winter - our South Jersey spring is settling in nicely. Love all your fiber creations! I'm a textile nut but have little time to devote to my crafts - hoping to see that change soon!
    Joy in Jesus!

  25. Deb - I have a link on my last night's short piece - I wish you would go there and click and read it - you were one of the ones I put it there for, knowing that it would touch you like it did me. I'm unprepared for the springtime, more pagan parts of our Easter celebration. But I am always prepared for the spiritual side - amazed, full of joy an grief, wonder at mercy and resurrection and horror at mankind's potential for blindness and cruelty - always in love with hope and forgiveness. And amazed at the love and sacrifice made by the son of the living God for us all. For the children who try, and even for those who he knew would give up. The snow is actually very Easterish - such a symbol, on the bloom, of the truth of mortal life - in the middle of success, trial - in the middle of beauty, age or illness or the news - a chill that could make us lose sight of the brilliant bloom that will outlast the blight. And also a symbol of the grand diversity in life - one beauty laid over another - for our delight, education, amazement.
