Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering Gods grace in its various forms.

Happy Resurrection Day!

HE IS RISEN!  What a glorious day!

 We have been spending a lovely weekend as family doing a whole lot of nothing much :)  We did some grocery shopping yesterday with an attempt at couponing and managed fairly well!  Hoping to see some real results within the next month when we start getting coupon packs in the mail and our rewards cards begin showing some savings.  I guess if we keep at it we'll start seeing huge savings within about six months.  If we could just cut our grocery bill in half we'd come out on top!  Anyway, it was a pretty messy day so other than grocery shop we just hung around the house.  Sometimes it's really nice to just do nothing!

We had a great morning at church listening to a wonderful and emotional message from our Pastor.  Our worship music was even more amazing than it usually is - the band performed all new worship songs and absolutely rocked the house!

Then we came home and had an Easter egg hunt in our front yard:

Who knew Easter eggs contained money???

One happy boy!
Little man has been such a happy boy today...he's tooling around in his tee-shirt with a "He is Risen" sticker on it that he got from his Sunday School class :)  We are truly having a blessed day!  He was all dressed up in his freshly ironed Easter shirt and tie and was so proud of how he matched his handsome daddy :) Take a look:

I couldn't be more blessed than this - it makes my heart so happy to see my two favorite men so glad to be together!  Of course you don't see me in any of these pics - LOL - I'm the one hiding behind the camera lens!

I'm taking a mini break from knitting for a while - I decided to finish a cross stitch project I barely started eons ago.   It's a lovely angel playing a harp and I thought it would be the perfect gift for my MIL's birthday in July.  This gives me lots of time to finish it up and maybe have it framed for her.  No worries - she doesn't read my blog so I'm not spoiling her surprise!

I had done most of the dark blue years ago so that was the first color I finished. 
Added the aqua accent to the gown and started the pink sash -
the book in the above ground is my current read
a thread so thin by Marie Bostwick
Here is my current work with the pattern photo - pretty, isn't she!

This is a piece I made for my Dad for Fathers Day nearly 10 years ago!
I still love the beaded stars :)

I wish you all a very Happy Easter!  Eat a lot, stay safe and praise the good Lord above for all your blessings!
