Good Friday and far more ordinary things

Good Friday is always a solemn day for me–a day of remembering the enormous price our Lord paid to ransom every last one of us.   ‘Thank You’ hardly seems to cover it.

I wish you and yours the most joyous and holy Easter ever; may your heart brim with the news: He is risen!

On a more mundane note, our winners for this past week are Christina Ennis and Rita.   Your prizes will be winging their way to you early next week–enjoy and congratulations.  The new contest will begin, as always, on Monday, so be sure to comment.

I made a run to Wal-mart today, with Jen.  It was a one-stop shop, which is good, but it sure wore me out!  I’m sipping a brand of coffee called “Revv” as I write this, so that gives you the idea.  Gotta pep the ole gal up a little!

I’ve been wanting to tell you about a couple of podcasts I’m really enjoying–Jim Harold’s Campfire and the Paranormal Podcast.  They’re both free, and you can find them wherever good podcasts are dispensed.  :)  (I got mine on iTunes.)  The theme is spooky stories, and I love that kind of stuff.  Sometimes, the callers talk about ghosts, other times, coincidences or something just plain weird that happened to them.  I got so hooked on these yarns that I went to www.jimharold.net and signed up for the Plus Club, which means I have full access to the archives.  It’s great!  My TV service was interrupted for a few days and, during that time, I got into the habit of listening to the podcasts instead.  Now the tube is working again, and I still prefer Campfire or the Paranormal Podcast.  Give it a try, if you like that sort of thing.

And be sure to have a wonderful holiday weekend.

    Lovely post! Congrats to the winners! I got to Walmart every week and it wears me out also. I also go to Kroger to get what Walmart don’t have on their shelves. Have a lovely Holiday weekend.

    Congratualtions to Christina Ennis and Rita! Enjoy your win.

    I, too, went to Walmart today, got rained on a little going in, they didn’t have what I wanted, so I bought something I didn’t need at the McDonald’s inside WM. I got rained on going out, got rained on some more coming into my shack. So, by now, I guess you’ve figured out…I’m all wet. :-D

    Linda, you said it best in your Blog, so I won’t repeat it, but agree 500%. I pray everyone has a good and Godly weekend, and enjoys Easter Sunday for the reason it is.

    Have a wonderful, joyous Easter weekend Linda. I must tell you though, when I read you were “sipping a brand off coffee,” I thought you said you were sipping on brandy and coffee! I guess that wouldn’t be so bad either!

    Have a beautiful Easter, Linda. I am so grateful He is risen, too. I don’t mind the aches and pains of yardwork when I
    look at the great property he has given me to maintain while
    I’m here. The horses and cat appreciate it,too.

    Hi Linda and all I want to wish you all Happy Holidays with remembering the price that Christ paid on the cross and now risen, He lives, He lives Christ Jesus lives. Blessings to all. I am still in the nursing home, they have me on morphine and other pain medicine.
    As always your friends,
    Norma

      Norma, I pray God will relieve your pain for you. You sound as if you’re keeping you’re spirits up, though.

      Blessed Easter to you and yours! Jesus died for us all, and I pray He touches you with His loving hands and heals you. I pray the same prayer for my son.
