This morning as I walked among the trees at our local  park, I realised how peaceful it was, I spied the gardener who  is a friend of mine and when he came up to me he pointed out the Celandine, a beautiful yellow flower growing in great clusters, beautiful ground cover. Then he showed me the beautiful white Anemones just starting to push their way up through the heavy green leaves, it is amazing what people never see. They walk through this park seeing little except what is right in front of them, they look at the water and see the ducks.
I sit over near the fallen trees and see at least ten species of small birds, some quite rare. The world's eyes are not open to the real beauties around them.
Like the hymn... "loved with everlasting love, brought by grace that love to know, it goes on to say.. Something lives in every hue, Christless eyes have never seen."
This Easter time let's try and walk quietly through the woods, looking around us, up at the trees.. down at the ground.. looking and listening  for the birds too.
Feeling that peace which truly does pass all understanding to those who truly know Christ as Lord and Master, You will be glad to be alive.[size]




Please post your favourite Easter hymn and I will find it so we all can enjoy the music!

Thank you, so much, Jacqueline!  I am currently wearing a heart monitor, for which I was fitted yesterday, until tomorrow because of my recent "routine" visit to the doctor. I also have an appointment for an echocardiogram next week. He's making sure I'm not having heart problems. 
This is a new doctor since my long-time doctor retired last year. He's young and very thorough. Also often tenderly mentions age and elderly!  :-[  I act like I don't know what he's talking about, but I suppose he's right. After all, this is my 86th time around the sun. ::)

Dot, my daughter, will be celebrating her 60th birthday on the 11th.  My "baby" daughter!  Hardly seems possible. She does her best to be in touch with me via telephone at least once a week. I can keep up with the rest of the family (her kids and grandkids as well as other grands and great grands) on facebook.  It will be nice when, once again we can see each other in person, especially now that I have learned her youngest daughter is planning to make her own son a big brother!  She has had IVF and they all seem so excited to add to my list of great grandkids!  :)

I hope y'all have a most wonderful Easter celebration and stay safe and healthy during this crazy time.

    ... I will be spending my Easter Monday inside an MRI machine...this is to see the progression of my PP-MS...

...Sorry to read your Birthday present this year is a heart monitor...

...11th April is the date of my Richards death, and same date i was diagnosed with PP-Multiple Sclerosis, strange how the same date can mean different things to one another....re, your daughters 60th Birthday...Will you be able to celebrate your joint birthdays together...or if not now, do you have plans to do so as soon as you can meet face to face......

  ...I like your logic, your way at looking at it, 11 days ago was also my 70th year around our sun, on our planet earth...Oh and yes, i so agree, dont our medics now look so young, or is it because we are getting so old....well as they keep telling us....age is just a number but, believe you me, my illness, my disease has certainly aged me....I was in hospital a couple of weeks ago and could not believe how young the two ambulance drivers looked, as they all gathered mingling and chatting along the corridor along with me, younger than our grandchildren, being all early - mid 20's...I felt i was waiting for the doors to open outside a nightclub...

Jane:  Love to see your post & photo.  Welcome back!

Here, we had 7 deer in the ravine yesterday.  One was very young but I can't judge their ages.  So concerned with some terrible young people racing their cars past here - the deer always cross the road as a group and they head to the golf course a block away (a different housing area).  There is a young man terrorizing us with his fast driving.  One neighbor was almost hit but she is afraid of repercussions from him if she had to take him to court. Thank heaven the deer were out of the way when the speedster drove through. 

I miss going to church - miss communion and the music.  It isn't the same over the internet and without the people. 

We had good news from one grandson - he finished his pilot training in Minnesota.   All smiles.

Tomorrow, we will have Easter gathering at our daughter's house - one son is out of state and two grandsons will not be here.  It is really warm here now so we can sit outdoors.

Judy:  I can hum a song but do not know the name - "he walks with me and talks with me".   




Many Thanks Judy!  Don walked in and knew the voice at once. 

We had all but two family members gather at our daughter's house for Easter.  All church is closed - at least all the ones we all are members.  One son and one grandson was missing.  It was a wonderful visit with lots of smiles and hugs - everyone is safe from this virus - we sure loved to talk and tell stories out on the patio.

I need to get my 2nd. Shingles shot - who knew they require a 2nd. shot?  They are so busy -overworked with the virus shot that no one calls back .   


In all things give thanks.

Reluctantly given thanks for finally finishing phone calls and mailing information to an insurance issue.  It is just exhausting to listen to a machine when you really need an actual human voice.  Thankful this chore is over.   :coffee:

Friends celebrated an 87th. birthday of a neighbor today - she is so sweet.  I brought the ice cream.

Oh just heard our lunchtime news ( 12.45 pm ) telling of the death of our Prince Philip - Duke of Edinburgh, just shy of reaching his 100th Birthday cum June... our Queens loyal husband, 73 years married...I am so sad and shocked to hear this very sad news, my heart goes out to our Queen...Sad day indeed...

Jackie - we have the news of Prince Philip on right now.  Condolences to all the nations.

Six of us girls gathered for a lunch this week.  It is really nice to say grace before lunch,  We say a short grace when dining out too.  All but one lives a few houses away so it is a short walk to the group. I hope all of you have the great friends nearby.  It is such a comfort.



Hello!  We have been away, just got home this evening around four.  Had a really nice trip by car all the way to Pensacola. Florida.  We followed my niece and husband, as they go there several times a year.  Darrel got really tired driving, and I don't trust my eyesight, and am not good at driving in traffic.  Niece had her niece along (My great Niece, 19 years old) and she offered to drive for us.
What a blessing Carly proved to be!  She even drove the part through the terrible Dallas traffic!  She did a great job, and wound up staying with us when JoAnne and Dan went home.  Carly drove the whole way back, and she and I spotted interesting things we wanted to stop and see or do, and did them!  Darrel would have gotten on the interstate and zoomed straight home!  Now he understands what I have been trying all these years to get him to do!  ;)

Judy, the name of the song He walks with me...is In The Garden.  My favorite, besides He's Alive! (thanks for that!) is He Arose.  It never seems like Easter to me if we don't sing that in church.  We were on the road on Easter, but we sang it anyway, God heard us!

We need to make us a hamburger or something for supper.  Good to read all your posts!
My book Rising Above available at JanetDamon.com


Janet:  Welcome Home!  We were transferred to Dallas and moved the family and one dog to a suburb - leaving a home on a little Minnesota lake.  The Texas drivers were all fast and furious.  Junk all over the freeways, etc.  Quite a change to a no holds barred life.  I know exactly how you felt on those freeways.

Here, I am re-reading a book on daily devotions - "Jesus Always" by Sarah Young.
