He is Risen

The third day after Christ's death
the Bible says:
Matthew 28:2 through 6
And, behold there was a great earthquake:
for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven,
and came and rolled back the stone from the door,
and sat upon it.

His countenance was like lightning,
and his raiment white as snow:

And for fear of him the keepers did shake,
and became as dead men.
And the angel answered and said unto the women,
Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus,
which was crucified.

He is not here:  for He is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
✝     ✝     ✝     ✝
 Luke 24:6
He is not here, but is risen:
remember how he spake unto you 
when He was yet in Galilee
 ✝     ✝     ✝     ✝
He is risen - With those words a new life of joy awaits all who believe.
Don't leave Jesus in the manager, or on the cross, or in the tomb.  He is ALIVE.  Seek Him out and He will be with you always.

Romans 10:9
That if thou shalt confess with they mouth,
the Lord Jesus, 
and shalt believe in thine heart that God
raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.
HAPPY EASTER 
and a blessed day to you all.

A busy day and a nap

35 degrees this morning, sunny and not even a breeze, a beautiful morning for walking.  Yesterday I retired another pair of walking shoes and wore a new pair today.  The old ones I'll wear around the yard.  Even though the new shoes are the exact same kind as the old ones, I always feel better after the first walk so I know they will be good walking shoes.  These latest pass the test.

I walked the Farm Loop in the opposite direction than usual.  A couple of pictures along the way.
I saw a couple of blue jays and a downy woodpecker.
No people around and very few cars.
Walked 6 miles.

I went to the library this morning but not the one in town.  I went to the one in Grantsville (15 miles or so from home) because the weather was so nice and thought it would be nice to take my car out for a  spin.
I checked out a Stephen King book that I've never heard of.  These other two books were on the give away shelf so I came home with them too.  They are books 4 and 5 in the series so now I'll have to get the other three from the library and read them first. : )
After lunch I went outside to get some work done in the yard.  I cut down 12 rose bushes and 3 big tree bush things.  Cut down 6 huge ornamental grasses and did some raking.  I was out for a few hours.  In the next few days I will have to mow the lawn.  I'm looking forward to having fun on the riding lawn mower again.  : )

After getting the clothes off the line and folding them I sat down to read.  Read a few pages and fell asleep. Woke up when Ken called to say he was on his way home.

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday.
happyone : )
Let the resurrection joy lift us from
loneliness and weakness and despair to
strength and beauty and happiness.

Three Happy Things Today
  1. Comfortable walking shoes
  2. Free books
  3. A sunny afternoon in the yard
Comment Replies:
Vee - I had Shrimp Scampi on a bed of spaghetti with a twice baked potato and green beans when we went out to eat. Too much food so I saved the spaghetti and had that as leftovers last night.  It was scampi flavored and delicious.

Karen - The little door on my camera that holds the batteries in broke and the duct tape is holding the door closed.

Edit:  Free books are number 8 and 9 of the series not 4 and 5 like I thought.

The Puzzle

It was 35 degrees this morning, cloudy but no wind.  With my camera kind of working and all taped up with duct tape I left on my walk and I walked the farm loop. 
Farmer Bill told me a while ago that he was going to put up a green house and I see today that he has started it.
I saw a ground hog again and he disappeared in a flash down his home.  It is quite a big hole.  I went up the bank on the side of the road and took a picture of it and the ground hog was long gone.
Since there was no school today there was less traffic (not there ever is very much) than usual. 
I went home after walking the loop for a pit stop and then left again to finish my walk. Remembered my library book this time and dropped it down the slot at the library and then walked around town.  The loop is just over four miles so just had a couple of miles left to walk.
I walked 6.4 miles.

A little after breakfast we went to LaVale to Kohls.  We had a coupon for 30% off.  So with their sale and our coupon it was a good savings.  Only thing was we didn't find anything to buy.  I need some dresses for church and just couldn't find any I liked.  We then headed to the mall to Penny's and I didn't find anything there either.  I tried on seven dresses and none of them were right.
They just don't make dresses for woman in my age group. : )

Though we didn't get anything at least we had a nice ride and a day out.

I didn't do a thing when we got home but work on the puzzle.  Ken helped a little but I mostly did it on my own.  It was a fun puzzle to do.
I'm getting hungry about now so off I go to have some supper.  Having the left overs from yesterday's eating out supper.

Hope your day is a happy one and you smiled often.
