Easter Blessings 2016

Our family has so much to be thankful for, and these past few weeks are no exception.  The days continue to pass so quickly!  My desire to journal here about our days of celebrations and family joys is enormous...but the time to do so, is limited.  There simply is no time to journal and share about all the happenings...

Girls clubs achievements and activities...college tours and decisions...birthdays and celebrations...feast days and rest.  Ahhh, rest.  I have been taking advantage of Sundays and spending family time just visiting and enjoying the blessings of my children and our family & friends.

Celebrating Easter continues at our home.  Like Christmas, Easter is not a one day event, but fifty days of feasting!  The first eight days, or Easter Octave, ends on Divine Mercy Sunday...which was on the 3rd of April of this year.

I am glad that we have an additional 30+ days...until Pentecost Sunday, or May 15th of this year.  We still have time to dye those Easter eggs.  :o)


It was fun to watch how my great nephews & niece rearranged the figurines...I like their version so much better than mine!


Easter is worth celebrating for at least 50 days, don't you think?

Happy Easter Friends!

"And with great power did the apostles give testimony of the resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord; and great grace was in them all."  
~ Acts 4:33
