Easter Week

How blessed are we by the creatures of the earth, the birds of the air, the flowers in spring, a time of renewal.  Thank you Lord for sacrificing your only son for us so that we might have life eternal.
  I am thankful for the flowers, the tree's new leaves, the greening of the grass but I am especially thankful for another spring with my hubby who is fighting cancer.
We treasure every moment together and can face any crisis as long as we are together.  Much like the old song, "Side by Side" in which a verse reads: "Through all kinds of weather, what if the sky should fall?  Just as long as we're together, it doesn't matter at all.  When they've all had their quarrels and parted, we'll be the same as we started.  Just a travlin' along, singin' a song, SIDE BY SIDE."  And as long as God is by our side we can face anything.  "There is nothing impossible that you and God can't handle today"

When you were a child did you learn this prayer?

Thank you for the world so sweet,
Thank you for the food we eat,
Thank you for the flowers in Spring,
Thank you for the birds that sing,
Thank you God for Everything!

I may not have the order of my thank you's just right, but I have always loved this little prayer.  May you have a blessed Palm Sunday and Easter week.

Bunny Hugs!  Kerrie

Through all kinds of weather, what if the sky should fall. Just as long as we're together,
It doesn't matter at all.

Doris Day, no? Glad everything is going okay right now Kerrie. Everything this time of year is a renewal, very much so. Thanks you and the same to you and your husband. Take care and have a great week.
