I wish I could fix how the typing goes when I post with pictures. I used to be able to type beside the picture, now I can't and I haven't figured it out yet how to get back to being able to do that, so it will just have to be this way for now. I have the picture of the Easter Bunny on here because it is getting closer to Easter. As it does, I want to remember why we have Easter-- it isn't for the bunny or the candy either. Easter is a dual time in many ways. It is a time when the Greatest Man who ever lived was violently killed. But that death was part of a plan. That plan makes it also a joyous time because of His death, He rose again and provides salvation for us if we want it.
And this picture is just to remind us that spring is only 10 days or so away........it feels like it is already here. Just remember, a few years ago we had days like this and then ice storms and the power was out for days.......

I love all y'all (even the thief)
1And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
2And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
3And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
4And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
5And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
6And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
7But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
8And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
9Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
10And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
11And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
12After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
13And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
14Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
15And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
