Three Facts






Our pastor shared these facts today and challenged us to think of reasonable explanations.....

Historical Fact 1:  Jesus lived, and died by Roman crucifixion.

Historical Fact 2:  The tomb was empty.

Historical Fact 3:  Jesus later appeared to over 500 disciples.









Easter memories 2014:

Miss E and Master J's uni/college mid semester breaks overlap for this Easter weekend only. So lovely to have them both home, the family all together again, very briefly.

Our church's Blue Cross on the Hill has been a red cross on the hill for the last week. Today the lights were changed back to blue.

My Musical Stairs quilt top is now basted in preparation for quilting the layers together.

My husband has started a new course of action to bring an end to his skin problems of the last 24 years. The downside is he will become worse before he becomes better and it could be a very long process, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. 

Miss E made delicious hot cross buns with cranberries and sultanas, baking them early this morning prior to church.

The most important 3 facts ever in history! What a gift, and totally unearned. So lovely your family is having a little time all together. As children grow, that is harder and harder to come by. Blessings to you and your dear family on this Easter day, and every day!

Glad there is a light at the end of the tunnel with your husband's suffering.. Wishing you all the best!

So grateful, with you, for what Jesus did for us!

I do hope your husband's course of action will prove successful, and please, I pray, not so hard. In the meantime, just smelling those hot cross buns must make him feel better. They look yummy!

What lovely memories, Karen. I'm glad your husband is going to give TSW a go. Luckily with doctors as parents and excellent GPs up here, when it was clear that Bec's Eczema was not really responding successfully to topical Steroids, we quickly dropped that treatment and opted for more natural methods. We also found that swimming in salt water was extremely helpful.
