Is it just me or did April fly by for you, too?
I learned a few things:
Passover Seders never lose significance. We love to tell the story of our redemption over and over. This year, two of my girlfriends joined us. One of them, Gen, said as she left: “I will never forget this night.” I learned she is searching for truth. I hold her beautiful thank you note in my hands and pray: “Help her to remember, Jesus, why this night is different from all the rest – because you, the Messiah, came to earth and delivered us!”
My Apricot and Apple trees are loaded with buds. The bees are back in great number this year. Spring brought warm days early on and my fruit trees budded. Then temperatures dipped, threatening a freeze. I didn’t want to lose my apricots. At sunset, I stood in front of my trees commanding the temperatures to stay above 32. The next morning, hubby was mocking the weather man and how he mistakenly predicted a freeze but it only fell to 35. I told him what I did and he gave me that smile which I interpret as “You’re a crazy woman but I love you anyway.” I learned that my neighbor covered her fruit trees with a bed sheet. I covered mine with prayer.
My desk faces a new direction in my office and I like it this way. My eyes bothered me when the computer screen was directly facing the bright sun so I turned the desk on an angle. I had to find a way somehow to position my desk in front of the window so I could gaze at the scenery for inspiration when I work.
Where do you write?
Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot get a tattoo over an old tattoo. You can. That’s all I’m going to say about this subject.
I learned that a new neighbor, an author from Manhattan, moved in just down the street. We’ve not made a connection yet. The couple does not attend our road association meetings or worse, even return our waves.
EVERYBODY HAS STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES.
My friend, Linda and I went to a presentation about insurance at the best Italian restaurant in town. I learned that my indecisiveness possibly can penalize me, as well as leave me under-insured. I dislike that weakness in me. I passed up four trays of appetizers; that’s a strength I do like about me.
I received an early Mother’s Day gift in the mail, Amy’s one-year photo. I watched the photo shoot when I was out there and learned so much from the professional. He was so good with her getting great expressions; I had a hard time choosing a favorite pose! Don’t you love it when people are good at what they do?
How about you, anything stand out in April?
