birthday dinner

Dane's kitchen table

It was my sister's birthday yesterday.  My middle sister.  It was also my mum's birthday.
We ventured into the city for dinner - burgers, dogs, salad and cake.  Some good conversation and a rousing game of apples to apples.  Today the sun is shining again.  It is Palm Sunday.  Monday starts Holy Week.   This has been a very strange Lent for me.  I have been living on the outside.  This year the dates are so far removed from Western Easter that it has been a challenge.  I do love the services of Holy Week so I am hopeful that being there in body will be enough.

On another note.... did you'all know we can caption our photos now.  For some reason I take great delight in this new feature.

your struggle is one I share. I remember reading somewhere that if one read the Scriptures and did not remember, they were still blessed by reading.

hang in there;

better to try to be humble and confess as we often have to a stony heart that does not know how to go inside than to think we are otherwise.

May God help us all and have mercy. Blessed Holy Week to you and your family.

Happy Birthday and a blessed Holy Week. I agree, physical presence is sometimes all we can offer, and that's ok.
