Good morning!

Sarah downloaded Microsoft's image resizer, so now I can use all the photos from my camera. Nifty!

This is the beginning of our garden. Looks nice, smells bad! You can see our raspberry bushes on the other side of the plot. They have 1" leaves on them. It seems the field always turns green overnight. The mulch pile was free from the local tree trimmers.

Tomorrow is Good Friday. This is a solemn time for our plain neighbors (plain meaning amish and mennonite). They will have their footwashing service and then their usual 3-hour Good Friday service. Afterwards they will partake of the Lord's supper in their communion service. They only do this twice a year, at Thanksgiving and at Easter. Our local plain stores will be closed all weekend.

I will be reminding the children throughout the day to meditate on what the Lord Jesus went through on the cross to pay for our sins. On Sunday, our Pastor gave us the horrendous details of Christ's crucifixion. "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." ~ 2 Cor 5:21 One thing for sure, I am not worthy. But I am eternally thankful.

Well, I'm off to finish the painting. Just wanted to see if I could download this picture.

Blessings ~ Kathie
