Happy Easter!

I compiled a bunch of verses-prophesies and gospel accounts-of Jesus' birth, death and resurrection. And I thought I'd share it with you guys!

(Luke 1:30-32) “But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.” (Isaiah 9:6-7) “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.” (Isaiah 53: 2&4-5a) He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities” (Luke 23: 44-46a) It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice”(Psalm 22:1&6-8&16-18) “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish?” (Luke 23:46b) “When he had said this, he breathed his last.” (Luke 23: 34b-38) “And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, 'He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.' The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar and said, 'If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.' There was a written notice above him, which read: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.” (Isaiah 53:9-10) “He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.” (Luke 24:1-6a) “On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightening stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, 'Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!” (Matthew 28:9) “Suddenly Jesus met them. 'Greetings,' he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.” (Isaiah 53:12b) “For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” (Psalm 22: 27-31) “All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him, for dominion belongs to the LORD and he rules over the nations. All the rich of the earth will feast and worship; all who go down to the dust will kneel before him—those who cannot keep themselves alive. Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord. They will proclaim his righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!” (2 Corinthians 5:21) “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

Have a wonderful Easter everyone!

Psalm 119:30-32

I have chosen the way of truth; 
I have set my heart on your laws. 
I hold fast to your statutes, 
O LORD; do not let me be put to shame. 
I run in the path of your commands, 
for you have set my heart free.

but doesn't linger there

i like the feeling of a cool evening breeze
that washes goosebumps on my skin
but doesn't linger there
i like the feeling of the breath of air
that whispers across my face
but doesn't linger there
i like the feeling of a calm little zephyr
that brushes across my feet
but doesn't linger there

i like the feeling of a day gone by
that was successful and restful
but doesn't linger there
i like the warm sun that slowly sets
that paints pink across the sky
but doesn't linger there
i like the clear moon that rises
that accompanies the stars
but doesn't linger there

my dream shoes

yes. i bought them.

they are red,

patten leather,


i will probably return them-the 4 1/2 inch heels "pump" me right over the 6ft mark, the peep-toe squishes my little toes and i can hardly walk when i wear them.
but for now i am enjoying their beauty. :)
aren't they lovely?

Happy April Fools Day Everybody.

unfortunately the snow outside my window is not a joke
it is amazing how if this were november or early december
we would be outside shaking the snow off the trees
so there was more on the ground
but now that it's APRIL the snow only brings
gross disappointment.
I was expecting a little more from april first
than snow and more snow and rain
maybe all the snow will melt away tomorrow
when it wil be
50˚ and sunny

yes. we got 3-4 inches of snow last night. it's pretty and all-but i can only think of all the daffodils and the crocuses that were already in bloom.
sad day.
