PALM SUNDAY


It was a beautiful Palm Sunday today.  The weather was cold, but the sun was shining.  Pastor's parents were visiting, so it was nice to get a chance to chat with them.

So many changes are coming about at church.  I'll tell you about them as they happen.  But it's very exciting.

For the second day this weekend I spent a lot of it asleep.  I've been very tired.  I'm having a hard time sleeping at night, so I guess I have to make it up somewhere.

I have so much to do this week in order to be ready for Easter Sunday.  Lots and lots of cleaning.  I hope to show you pictures as I go along.

So that's it for now.  I need to get some things done.  Until later....

FRIDAY VIEW

Yes, folks, it's time for another Friday View.  I have a cute one for you today.  Last week Liz, our children's librarian, was on vacation so Jerry, the adult librarian (with three small grandchildren), filled in as the reader for the Preschool Storytime.


He even wore a Cat-in-the-Hat hat when he read Green Eggs and Ham.  The theme for the day was "green".



Because he was the only librarian in that day, I had to sit at his desk and play librarian.  So I took these pictures from there.

What were my co-workers doing while this was going on?  Why working, of course.


Have a good day, everyone!

RAIN AND OTHER THINGS






This was me yesterday.  A little damp around the edges.  Even though I knew it was going to rain, I didn't bother to use my umbrella.  Most of the time it just doesn't bother me to walk in the rain.  The only time I mind is if it is pouring.  Then I want to be able to see.  So I use what I lovingly call my portable roof.  At least it was pretty warm.  It got up to 51*F and down to 46*F.    This weekend the temperatures are supposed to dip and we are to get more snow.  Enough with the snow already!

There is no sleeping in today.  They are still working on the remodel of the house next door.  Lots of power saws, hammers, banging, talking (shouting) to each other.  They have been working on the house for over two months now.  The entire house was gutted and is being rebuilt.  It was a beautiful house to begin with.  I can't imagine what they are doing to make it better.  Since we share a wall on one side all the noise is magified!

Because we have Bible Study on Wednesday night at 7:00 and I don't get out of work until 6:00 Joe and I have gotten into the habit of getting a pizza for him and chicken for me on those nights.  Last week I stopped at Little Caesar's on the way home and picked it up.  But we both really like Dominos and so I ordered it online last night for the first time.  It was really cool.  I ordered it at 7:30 a.m. before I went to work for delivery at 6:00 p.m.  I was still at work but Joe said it came exactly at 6:00 p.m.  I love their website where you can watch the little cartoon man get your order, prep it, make it, bake it and deliver it.  You can send them encouraging remarks too like, "Go Dominos.  You're the boss!"  Ha, ha.

I ordered molten lava cakes for dessert too as a treat.  If you haven't had them, you must try them.  They were so good!  I told Joe this would not be an every week thing and he said, "Why not?  I love chocolate!"

We have a new lady attending church.  She has two beautiful little girls, Olivia and Elizabeth who are 6 and 5 years old.  She brought the little one to the Ladies' Bible Study on Tuesday (the older one was in Kindergarten) and she was very well behaved.  

Last night the three of them came to Wednesday Night Bible Study.  During prayer time I took the girls into the Sunday School room.  We had a Bible story about Palm Sunday and colored in pictures of palm leaves to hang on the bulletin board.  Then I read them a book and they played with the toys in the playroom.  It has been many years since I taught Sunday School so I was a little rusty, but I haven't lost my touch.  I now know I have to bring more things to keep them occupied next week.  And a snack.  I told them Miss Cherie will be their teacher on Sunday and Miss Kathy will be their teacher on Wednesday.  They were happy and clapped their hands.  So cute.

They are smart too.  They were trying to guess my age and they said 21.  Yes, they are really intelligent children.
 
Joe and I watched a movie the other night called "Joyeux Noel" about the Christmas 1914 ceasefire during World War I.  It was really good though much different from what I expected it to be.  I'll do a Movie Monday on it next week.

 I just looked at the time and realized I have to get off of here and get ready for work.  It's my 8:00 p.m. night so I also have to think of something quick to have for dinner.

Have a good day everyone!

LOOKING TO THE STARS

It's very late and I have a lot to do yet before I go to bed, but I wanted to show you this photo I took last night of the moon and the planet Venus.


I went out to the kitchen to make dinner, looked out the window and saw this.  I knew I had to get a shot.  I took lots of pictures.  Most of them were blurry or I moved, or my heart was beating (or at least I hope it was beating) and they didn't turn out.  I was able to get these two.


I could see the whole disk of the moon and if you look carefully you can see it in these pictures also.  But it's sort of hard to see.  Pretty good pictures for my little point and shoot camera aren't they?

Well, sorry this is so quick, but I do have to hang a load of wash, take my meds and get ready for bed.  Tomorrow morning, and Bible study, comes quickly.

SUNDAY PRAISE -- WHEN THE STARS BURN DOWN

Jeremiah 17:7-8

“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord
    and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
    with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat
    or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green,
    and they never stop producing fruit



Praise song of the day:  When the Stars Burn Down by Philips Craig and Dean.
This is a repeat from last July, but a good choice anyway.
