Good Morning!

He is risen!


Matthew 28:1-10

Jesus Has Risen

28 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”


Anyone have a QoD?

  1. ❤ Happy Easter / Resurrection Day, Fellow Wanderers! ❤

    We will be having a lovely brunch in a little while, when Nightingale and Boy get back from picking up Chickadee. May you all have a lovely day, whether you are with family or on your own! God bless you all!

  2. He is risen! Indeed! He is victorious!!!

    It’s a beautiful day here, sunny and going into the 60’s so good weather for afternoon egg hunts.

    Sunday school was good with son attending with me.

    The pastor opened the service telling about his time in PNG on a mission trip. Jo would appreciate all he said.

  3. 63 her in the Sunny South. I have had the back door open and Miss Jin has enjoyed the ability to go in and out at will.
    Potatoes are in the oven. Mac and Cheese in the refrigerator. Ham in the crock pot. Brown Butter Blondies are made.
    Mr P and I are just waiting on the children. The eggs are hidden.

  4. Hallelujah He is Risen Indeed!
    Church then home to rest. In the low 50’s partly cloudy. Birds and squirrels all around here and of course Pip wants to chase the squirrels as they try to steal the birdie food from the feeder!

    We will grill steaks later on and in the meantime I will get back to my book. #7 in the Bregdan Series by Ginny Dye 😊

  5. I had to watch the service on line (at least I could). The snow came down off the shop roof and effectively trapped the car in the shop. The truck needs a new battery so…

    Then I went and searched for “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” and “Up From the Grave He Arose” as I miss hearing/singing them on Easter Sunday.

    Kootenay does NOT like my singing. Oh well.

  6. We sang Up From The Grave this morning.
    I took voice lessons as a teen and my voice instructor had a Springer Spaniel named Chloe. Every time I hit a certain note she would howl and howl. My instructor would give her a Clove Lifesaver to make her hush😂

  7. Some folks gave us their old dog when they left Okinawa. It would howl for that song as well!

    Praise: son in law reports that daughter went to church this morning.

  8. Shredded wheat for me 🙂 (Breakfast/lunch combined) and a small, single serving fresh “chef” entry (beef, potatoes, vegetables) for later tonight, I’ve had that in the refrigerator for 2 days, time to heat it and eat it.

    We sang In Christ Alone, You are My King (Amazing Love), Christ The Lord Is Risen Today, One Day He’s Coming.

    Responsive reading from the Heidelberg Catechism (Qs 57-58) and the sermon, with a nod toward some number of visitors the church typically gets on Easter (but really for all of us, Amen?) was titled “What the Believer Believes,” a good presentation of the gospel and the essentials.

  9. I had to work at the cave today, but since I was in charge I put Easter hymns on the PA system. Got to sing along when the gift shop was empty.

  10. Did you Google the recipe for h in the crockpot? It was so easy. Pineapple juice and brown sugar. Cover with foil and set it for at least 4 hours. I think it was one of my best.
    I also made really yummy potatoes.


  11. Twenty one year old is mad at me. She apparently wanted me to bring her books and candy as I did when she was a child. I reminded her she is an adult now. She let me know in some fairly coarse terms, that I am not wanted in her life.

    It is okay. She is generally fairly pleasant in the morning and fairly unpleasant after noon. But she rarely gets up in the morning anymore. You would think then she would be pleasant for the first part of the afternoon at least!


  12. I read the recipe in your link. Timing was an issue for me because of church, so it got overcooked, but it was easy. I’ll try it again when I’ll be home to check on it.

    I think the dishwasher is running for the third time. Everyone just left, but I haven’t been upstairs to see what the children did up there— beyond breaking a cheap mirror.

    A lovely, full, tiring day.
