The Day After…

We celebrate Easter, the holiday of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and with today being the day after, I wondered how the disciples, Mary and others, who saw Jesus after He rose again, felt the day after.

When they woke the next morning, with the sun shining in through their windows, were they still in awe and wonder over seeing Jesus alive the day before?  After all, they had witnessed His death and burial.

Can you imagine what they must have felt for days, even for the forty days Jesus was with them before He ascended into heaven?

Oh how I would like to know what they felt, how they reacted and what their expressions were when they saw Him again.  I can only imagine the wonder and amazement that surrounded them.

Easter weekend was a blessing to me.  My church, First Baptist Branch, performed an Easter program three nights.  I have to say, my church family has a special place in my heart.  They are a great bunch of people.

Anyway, working together on a story about Jesus and His resurrection was probably the best way I could spend an Easter weekend.  It was totally focused on my Savior and not all the other things this world tends to throw in the way of the holiday.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
