Happy Easter!

Hi all!

He died so that we may live.. what a profound thought this Easter. "Greater love hath no man than this; that a man lay down his life for his friends."
Wishing you the Hope that His resurrection brings.. a new life and a new beginning!

Easter should be the bigger holiday but Christmas gets more press.  I guess it's the circumstances behind this redemption that make it more solemn than festive.  I love the Easter vigil mass - you get to feel Jesus' triumph over sin and death.  "We must consider ourselves dead to sin, but alive in Christ Jesus".  When you hear the bells ringing and the festive Gloria being sung.. wow!

These are readings I recall as a lector at mass - something I stopped doing but am going back to.

Sorry to have been away so long.. been very busy with work (think 12-14 hour days), with planning my Mom's birthday bash (a success, thank goodness!),  and with worrying about work...(please do send a prayer or a good thought up for me!) .  I've neglected writing the new learnings everyday and coming back into Blogger, noticed that Google warns that it's discontinuing Google Reader.  Darn, aren't there enough of us using this?  Now for the search for a new one, to be able to keep track of the blogs I'm following..  Any suggestions?

I don't know if I posted this before - it's a bit blurry but I hope it works!  This is a freebie from Madame La Fee and if I remember to do it, it's going off to join a quilt.

If you notice, I didn't stitch in the bee wings - not very good with whites!  Also, I bought Aida specifically for this project..  it doesn't feel like the Aida I used 20 years ago.. it has a plastic-ky feel.  Doesn't feel like cloth at all.  I wonder why?  Is this made in China or something.

Eeeeep, not a very good photo.  I'll see if I can remedy that.  I don't have a new camera yet nor have I found the USB cord for the one I'm using.. instead, I discovered one can use a card reader and plug it into the CPU to download pics!  I'm cheating a bit as I finished this last November.  I have 4 others I'm working on and I'll post those in a while..

Anyway, up there's your Spring picture... hope you like it!

Blessings to all of us!
