Awesome!

Awesome!

That was my first thought when I saw the package sitting on the couch, as I walked into the house after work last night.  Like a kid at Christmas, I couldn't  wait to open it up.


It was addressed from Jedi Craft Girl and I knew what it was going to be.  About a month ago there was a giveaway on Jedi Craft Girl's blog.  I put my name in and was blessed with the winning.



Here is the beautiful quilt I received.

 Somehow, over the years, I have acquired bird houses.   I do not collect bird houses, but it seems I have received several of them over the years.  I'm visualizing this beautiful little quilt hanging on a wall with the bird houses in front of it.   Wouldn't that be a cute setting?

Easter, it is one of my favorite holidays.

What an awesome celebration to have.  The celebration of the Risen Savior!

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.  And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.  His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.  And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.  He is not here: for He is risen, as He said.  Come see the place where the Lord lay.  And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead; and , behold, He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.  And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.  And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail.  And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped Him. ~ Matthew 28:1-9 

This Sunday, as you celebrate Easter, remember Jesus is alive and we need to keep sharing His word with others.

Here's wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!

God bless and keep you,

I shot a video of lightning as storms rolled in this evening. Here are some shots from it. Sonia
