    The Simple and Beautiful Things That Helped Me Survive the First Week Back-To-Teaching (During a Pandemic!)

    Hello dear friends! Today I am sharing a different kind of post. A rambling post. A de-stressing post? Anyway, it has been one very trying and stressful week as I returned back-to-teaching (during a pandemic!)  I was so overwhelmed by Tuesday that I came home and fell asleep right after work and didn’t wake up until about 10:00 p.m. When I finally did wake up there was a bouquet of a dozen ivory roses that my husband had placed on my bedside table. He knew how down and stressed out I was. Did the roses cheer me up? Of course! Flowers make everything better!

    Thanksgiving greetings dear friends! In observance of Thanksgiving, there will be no Thursday Favorite Things Link Party this week. Today is a day to spend time with family and friends and to give thanks to God for the many blessings and mercies we receive daily! May we also join together to lift up those in prayer who are in times of need and trouble.

    Wishing You A Blessed Palm Sunday

    Palm Sunday Matthew 21

    Hello dear friends! I just want to wish everyone a blessed Palm Sunday, and to take this time to give glory to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ our savior. Hosanna in the highest!

     

    Palm Sunday vintage- we will come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves!

    Matthew 21

    21 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,

    Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.

    And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.

    All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

    Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

    And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

    And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.

    And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.

    And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

    10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

    11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

    Hosanna in the highest!

    With all the fun and excitement that comes along with secular Easter activities, let us not forget to focus on the true meaning of Easter, the passion of Christ and his glorious resurrection. What a blessed hope! Hosanna in the highest!

    Happy Easter time!
