Easter...Or Do You Prefer Resurrection Sunday?Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter/Resurrection Sunday last weekend. Ours was quite nice and relaxing, despite more rain. We attended our normal Sunday church services, then went home and had a nice dinner comprised of roast turkey breast, stuffing, boiled buttered potatoes, and asparagus. For dessert, a chocolate pudding pie in a graham cracker crust. Yum! Hubby and I did some housework while waiting for the turkey to roast. I'm still behind from when I was gone for a week. It was funny, because it was cool and rainy out, and the house smelled like Thanksgiving, and I think it confused my senses a bit! But overall, a nice day. A great day, as is any day, to remember the hope that God gave us when He sent His Son to die so that we could live in Him! May every day be Easter to you who are saved!
Below are photos of the Easter sand sculpture that a local ministry creates every year. It's an enormous display carved completely from sand and housed under the shelter of the farmer's market area of the fairgrounds. It takes many people many hours to create it, and it usually remains up for quite a while after Easter. Click on the pictures to enlarge them!
Politics...No, I Won't Bore You
We were invited to a neighbor's house earlier this week to listen to a mayoral primary candidate speak. Our town is going to elect a new mayor in the fall, and there are four Republican candidates running in the primary (and oddly enough, no Democratic candidates), so the race is becoming interesting. We will vote in the primary next week. I am not extremely political, although I do have strong opinions when it comes to the rules and laws of this city, state, and country. I do not proclaim to be either Republican or Democrat, nor am I interested in debating the pros and cons of each side. I simply know what is right or wrong, and most of those views come from Biblical teaching. Anyway, I have to say that the candidate we heard last night seems like he would be a good leader for the town. He has quite an impressive private resume, and does not seek higher political office (according to him). He claims to want to do the job because he is capable, not because he wants to be mayor. I won't bore you with details, but I thought it was fun and interesting to listen to someone who seems to genuinely care about the future of the community, and I will probably vote for him. Perhaps someone I vote for will actually make it to office!
VacationI am very ready for our vacation. That's all I have to say about that.
FloodingI am so tired of rain and flooding. That's all I have to say about that.
