In these weeks following Easter up to the commemoration of Jesus' ascension into heaven, the time is designated as a season of rejoicing. Following this lead, I am going to just list the many blessings the Lord has bestowed on me these past two weeks. Praying your Easter season holds much joy and that you find blessings in the simple, ordinary events of each day.
533) Celebrating Christ's Resurrection Freedom for all who believe in Him
534) Forever friends who know every aspect of your life and still love you. 535) Feet up, quiet talks with friends, catching up, laughing, heart-to-heart, sharing Him
536) "That's My King" DVD--what a way to usher in Easter, seeing every way that He is the Great I AM
537) "Christ in the Passover" presentation at Church on Good Friday, a recap of the seder foreshadowing of Christ
538) Trekking out to the Bountiful Harvest co-op at 7 a.m on a Saturday morning--yawn. But the haul was great and shared. Broccoli, flavorful asparagus, summer squash, cucumbers, yams, bananas, apples, honeydew melon, pineapple, some Japanese root, 5 loaves of 9-grain bread, and yummy Easter cookies
539) Coming home and crawling back into bed--much needed
540) Hubby helping around the house to make it comfortable and tidy for visiting
541) A simple Easter meal for just the family--ham, that flavorful asparagus, and those yams
542) Hubby and I sitting quietly after dinner. We basked in the rest. An unfamiliar occurence.

544) A quick game of "Quiddler"

549) Buying dress clothes for Oldest's job interview on Tuesday--so nice to be needed by the guys
550) Bible Study shared with my dear friend
