Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! It rained sometime during the night and we have overcast skies now, with more showers predicted sometime during the day. But the weather is quite warm!
Yesterday was a glorious Easter Sunday! Brian attended his church's 8 AM service, then he came over to go to church with me at 11. We listened to a powerful sermon and lots of singing proclaiming Christ is Risen! There was a crowd in attendance which is expected at Easter.
Brian had made reservations for us at The Hangar Afterwards,, which was a good thing, because they were really crowded! The menu was brunch style and we had plenty to choose from! We had a good table right beside the windows, so we could see the water and the planes. After we finished our main dinner, we went back to the salad/dessert bar to choose more food. the Executive Chef came out of the hot kitchen, to stand beside the door, and we both complimented him on the fine lunch he had prepared...He was very young to be in charge, but very capable.
Saturday, Brian came over and did some things for me...catching up on the check book, tuning up my new computer, trying to get my ipad and iphone to stay connected with WIFI, and then we bought a lily and took it out to Bay Pines cemetery to place it on Louis' grave. It was quiet and beautiful there, with a soft wind blowing. Afterward, we went across the street and had supper at the new Village Inn. St was a full day! Brian is off on a mini retreat for a couple days. He has been working really long hours at the bank and solving lots of challenging issues, so he was ready!
I have noticed since my azaleas are slowing dropping their blooms, that now the jacaranda trees are starting to bloom and I have amaryllis blooming!! I did not have any last year, but one is in full bloom with four flowers on the stalk and two more are almost ready to open! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my every thought when far away.
You chart the path ahead of me
and tell me where to stop and rest.
Every moment you know where I am.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord
You both precede and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to know!
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
