Our lives have been turned a bit upside down lately. So many good friends and loved ones with serious issues. My own Beloved suffering greatly with back issues. Life is just hard sometimes. Early morning walks/prayer time become essential for me.
So does a little yarn therapy: Openwork wrap by Lion Brand
Yarn is: Shawl in a Ball by Lion Brand also. Most appropriately the colorway is Healing Teal.
I have always surrounded myself with strong women friends. I've been so blessed by their strength. Today, it seems we are all having that strength challenged... we are having brought home how powerless we really are... how much we really need the peace that surpasses all understanding...
I'm not mentioning by name, but there are several who need prayers, including My Beloved and myself. He is scheduled for back surgery next Monday. God knows all of the needs of the many. The thing I have most treasured about blogging is the power and willingness of prayer for one another. Thank you in advance for your much treasured prayers.

My precious son, Zachary, and his lovely bride, Candice, share April birthdays. Zack's was Easter Sunday and Candice's is this coming Friday. It is hard to believe my BABY is 34. He was due on Easter Sunday, but came 12 days later the year he was born... A whole 9 lbs. 8 oz. of beautiful baby boy. Only another parent knows how deep these heart strings go. Wishing these two their best year yet!!
Now, you may just want to move on... there are a million photos of Easter festivity. I just wanted to save them here for myself. This was the first Easter we have all been together since the Littles.
Alex set the breakfast table for all his cousins and brother... He was up at 5:30 AM (before I'd had a chance to get it ready). I think he did a fabulous job... better than I would have. ;) Such a good helper to his Noni.
I wasn't the only photo taker of the day. I'm sure Amanda's are much better than these, but I love that I caught her in action. ;)
If you stayed this long, you deserved a golden egg, too!!
