If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Easter Weekend 2020

Ours was a quiet weekend and mostly spent at home.  Friday we stopped on the way home after work and picked up some chicken from Domino's for supper.  Seems strange to get chicken from a pizza place, but it was very good.

Saturday we slept in a little and then took a run to the post office and to Krogers and then picked up lunch.  We spent the rest of the day at home.  Lucy and I took a long walk in the neighborhood and then we were back home for the rest of the day and watched some TV and did a bunch of reading.
I'm thinking maybe she was a little tired after the walk.  lol

Sunday morning we were up early and got cleaned up and headed to Walmart first.  We needed some hamburger and I needed to get some buttons.  I've been asked to help make some of the straps for the face masks.  My sister's church is making masks and they asked her to make some of the straps as the masks are hurting the workers' ears and she recruited me to help.  They are really easy and kind of fun to make and I'm thankful for the chance to get to help.
some completed and some in progress
After the quick run in Walmart we headed to church and hubby did his first FB Live Sermon.  I think it turned out really well.  I'm so proud of him.  If you follow me on FB I shared it on my page, if you are interested.  It was a really good sermon.

After that we picked up some lunch and a Starbucks and went home for the rest of the day.  I heard from both girls just briefly and hubby and I had a good day at home.  I did some reading and while we watched TV I worked on the mask straps.

So that was my Easter weekend. It was different than normal, but Jesus is still risen from the grave and this quarantine stuff does not change that truth.  It all comes down to a choice and I choose to have Joy!

  1. I was so happy to see your comment on my first post in a long while. I'm hoping to be back - we'll see! I love your background, with the pink flowers and "wooden" boards. It looks like you had a wonderful family. I was actually able to get to see my daughter and grand kiddos - it made this Nannie's heart so very happy! HOPE you have a great day, sweet Lady!

  2. So happy that you can make the straps for the face masks...what a blessing for them to have that. You are very talented. Also glad your hubby was able to live stream his service to the congregation. That was a blessing for them I am sure. God is good, and we are blessed to be His children! Amen?

  4. That is nice that you are making those straps. I have been busy making mask and mine have the ties. My niece asked me to make her a few more since she is a nurse. We saw church on FB too. I am glad your hubby did well on his FB sermon.
