Here is the last set of ornaments for our Lent/Easter Devotion (posted below).
I pray this final week before Easter will be filled with moments of beauty and grace, for you and me! And maybe a few quiet moments, too...to pause and remember our Savior's final week on this earth. And to contemplate His incredible love for us.
I just love this description of Jesus - in His own words - from Palm Sunday...
"Say to the Daughter of Zion, 'See, your King comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey." Matthew 21:5
O sacred Head, now woundedwith grief and shame weighed down,now scornfully surroundedwith thorns, thine only crown:how pale thou art with anguish,with sore abuse and scorn!
How does that visage languishwhich once was bright as morn!What thou, my Lord, has sufferedwas all for sinners' gain;mine, mine was the transgression,but Thine the deadly pain.Lo, here I fall, my Savior!Tis I deserve Thy place;Look on me with Thy favor,vouchsafe to me Thy grace.What language shall I borrowto thank Thee, dearest friend,for this Thy dying sorrow,Thy pity without end?O make me Thine forever;and should I fainting be,Lord, let me never, neveroutlive my love for Thee.

This week we are still busy working on cleaning and organizing.....along with a few more yard/gardening projects.....and of course, there is much to do to prepare for Easter!
So until later, dear friends....
