Sunbeam and Moonbeam...

My first week, at work, went fast.   I learned a lot and I think I'm going to like working there.   The environment is totally different than what I have been exposed too, in the past few years.  It is peaceful and the group I am part of is very team oriented.

I get an hour for lunch, and after 20+ years of 30 minute lunches, I have had to figure out what to do with my extra time.  So, I take crochet work or knook work with me and work on it during the second half of my lunch break.   Here is a dish cloth I completed this week.

I use to be able to come home for lunch, but can't now, due to working in another town.   I didn't realize how much I would miss my husband. The beginning of the week was rough for me in that area of my life, it was like I lost my best friend, but a few texts and phone calls on my lunch hours, helped out.  :)

This week, the Lord blessed us with the blooming of the daffodils in my flower garden.  I also have one hyacinth left and it bloomed too.

And why take ye thought for raiment?  Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. ~ the words of Jesus in Matthew 6:28-29 

Next week is Spring Break, here in Arkansas.  We will not be having AWANA, but will the next week and will be having a Easter egg hunt for the kids.   Today I bought plastic eggs and filled them with candy.  I will deposit them in the collection box at church this weekend.   While filling the eggs, it brought back memories of when my kids were little and how they liked to hunt for the eggs.   Precious memories.

St. Patrick's day is upon us.   So I leave you with an Irish blessing.

May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.

God bless and keep you,
