Easter Day #90

Every day of my life I celebrate Easter, but Happy Easter to those of you who mostly celebrate it today! :)


My friend, Barbara, shared this at Facebook:

"If you are avoiding the call of the religious thinking of today's world, and instead are "looking unto Jesus" (Hebrews 12:2) setting your heart on what He wants, and thinking His thoughts, you will be considered impractical and a daydreamer." ~ Oswald Chambers

... and oh! Welcome to my world. 

But you know? There is a price to pay for this joy inside my heart and I will gladly continue handing over my payment. I could buy a different type of life, a more accepted one amongst my Christian friends, even, but no thanks. I choose daily, eye-lighting joy with my Friend.


Wow! Loved this message this morning:

Life-altering stuff!


Tom and I had our taxes done yesterday morning. Whew. Don't you always feel like singing the Hallelujah Chorus when your tax return is over and done with for the year?!

And Tom's new job begins tomorrow, bringing changes to us both, some to my housekeeping ways. I'll need to iron more, be more organized in my shopping trips since I'll have the car less... you know, actually think ahead. Oh dear! heh. 

Yet these next days and weeks will have more of a springtime, Suzy Homemaker dreaminess about them, and well, you already know how I feel about that!


Wishing you all much, much joy!


Confused by my title today? Go here.  :)

Good post, Debra. #90 was an interesting link. I can't listen to the sermon at the moment because my husband is watching a movie here with me but if it's Joyce, it's good!

I am so happy for your transition into Tom's new job and your new housekeeping. Tomorrow finds me heading out to my kindergarten class for the first time in a week, as I've just come through three days of my first cycle (of 6) of chemotherapy. I am so grateful to feel well enough to go back with my kids, who make me smile and to have been able to spend time in WNY with my folks.

Happy, Happy Easter, Debra & Tom. Can't wait to hear all about the new job!

Oh Bonnie! I had no idea you were doing chemo. Please know I'm praying that all will be well and that you'll be totally healthy and healed soon! (I'm sure you will be, actually, because I've noticed for years that you have an amazing sunny disposition which never fails to inspire me--and I believe that makes a huge difference when it comes to health!). Have fun with your little ones! Hugs, Debra

This is a good point you make, that each day can be a joyful Easter day. A lot of the songs we sing in church remind me of this.

Terra--yes! I love that many hymns speak of how amazing life can be when we live each day as though Jesus is really, truly alive and closer to us than any friend. Thanks for commenting! Blessings, Debra
