We got some much-needed rain over the weekend putting out any lingering fires. Thanks for all your care and concern. Friday I did some cleaning at Janice's house in Velma. It was filled with soot and smoke from the fires, which came right up to her house. After renting that house for 16 years, on Friday afternoon Janice signed the papers and bought it. Congrats Janice! This was in the plans, but when the fire almost took her house the day before she signed the papers, it left Janice wondering just what God was trying to tell her. We all decided that since the house did not burn, it was meant to be hers. It always seems odd to see the scorched land with green treetops. Spring can be so beautiful here in OK, but it can be deadly.
Toby’s family celebrated his mother’s 79th birthday on Saturday. Toby and I took the GGs to WF giving their mother a chance to do some shopping before we all met for the birthday party. The girls were great – as usual.
We had a rather quiet Easter Sunday. The weather was a bit rainy in the morning, but the sun did come out towards the afternoon. Here is my Easter message in a nutshell. Christ is not on the cross. He is not in the grave, but He is risen and seated in the heavenly as a great high priest once and for all. The old has past away. He made all things new. There is power in the resurrection now.
I watched the news this morning that Capt. Phillips was safe and several pirates were dead – thanks to Navy Seals. I know that Obama will receive praise for his part, but I think that Navy Seals and our military are the heroes.
It is shaping up to be a busy week – must head to town for supplies.
