This is the snow and ice encrusted cord to my iPod after my run this morning. The entire front of me was coated with ice. Fun! I had a great run. I opted to take today off, I dislike working on Good Friday. I have already gone to a meeting and I will probably go to another and spend some time at church before the day is over.
Easter is really my favorite holiday. It has not been embraced by our popular culture to the extent that other religious holidays have. Adults really don't embrace the whole Easter bunny concept... it is intended for children. So, I get to enjoy a holiday mainly for its religious significance... not its manifestation in secular culture. That said, I will still be making Easter baskets for the little ones. And I even sent one to Iraq!
My daughter is supposed to spend the weekend here, and I think the kids will too. It should be a busy weekend. She is doing well, I pray she can continue in this way. The other twin has gone to Moab, UT for the weekend. I am jealous. I love Moab.
"When I was driven to my knees by alcohol, I was made ready to ask for the gift of faith. And all was changed. Never again, my pains and problems notwithstanding, would I experience my former desolation. I saw the universe to be lighted by God's love; I was alone no more." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 51
