Spring has arrived and we are experiencing all the weather that goes with it. We have had temperatures in the eighties this week and rain on the way. It is great to think that the plants are blooming and the earth seems to be coming alive after the winter. Granted we do not have much winter in Texas.
Bob worked on the back yard this weekend getting the garden tilled and ready for some much needed compost. I look forward to the first plants growing outside. Right now we have seedlings in the house getting ready to be planted in the near future. I love that we can grow them in the house and then transplant them into the garden to produce wonderful vegetables for us to enjoy.
It is so typical that this is Resurrection week. The week we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus. It always seems to rain some time during this week. When I was growing up it seemed to me that it would rain every Good Friday. (It probably didn’t but that is how it felt.) This week is no exception, there is rain in the forecast for most of the week. The ground really needs some good soaking rains.
Spring always brings rains and the celebrations that go along with the resurrection of our Lord Jesus. I get to spend the whole weekend with two wonderful grandsons, Jack and Rex. I look forward to sharing the story of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection with them in my own ways. I want to pass on some family traditions and teach them how to decorate eggs and then find them. I can’t wait for the fun to begin.
I take grand-parenting seriously because I feel that I can still impart some pretty important stuff into the next generation in my family. I hope that your Resurrection weekend is full of fun and activities that all point to Jesus. Enjoy your week and I will be back soon with more.
