He is Risen!

Hallelujah! He is Risen.
I have always thought that Easter is actually more important to us as Christians than Christmas. His death on the cross, dying for our sins. Your sins and my sins. If He hadn't come born of a virgin, fulfilling the prophecies then He wouldn't have been able to die on the cross to take away our sins. Not being a theologian of any sort I will leave that to someone more learned than me. Either way they are important "holy-days"
Easter here at Blackwater River Ranch was brought in with a most glorious morning. Clear and bright sunshine. Birds everywhere. They love our feeder and unfortunately for the little birds there is a hawk that loves the feeding stations too. He has had a dinner of a few of the littler ones now. They are getting hip to him though and splitting the scene the moment one of them spies him.
We had a visit from our friend Woody just in time to have lunch with us. He is such a special man wish everyone could get to know him. While we were eating our lunch another vehicle tries to make it down our driveway. They made it eventually but managed to run over one of the dogs racks of ribs and flattened a tire. They were checking out the river to see if the ice is off yet. Getting anxious to fish. Our place here is a very famous fishing spot. So in the end we made some new friends. We don't see hardly anyone and then suddenly there is three different peoples here.
This evening is our home church meeting so that is the next thing on our list of things to do. In the meantime We have been doing odds and ends around here. One of our daughters is coming to stay the night tonight. I have the bed all made up with fresh bedding on it and all is ready set to sleep in.
Dogs are sprawled around on the floor. Here and there one is groaning and stretching or one is snoring. The littlest dog growls at all the big dogs. I am not sure if she is incredibly brave or real unsmart. LOL Anyone of the big dogs could eat her in a bite or two!

But God demonstrates His own love
toward us, in that while we were still
sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

Rejoice in the LORD!
Easter Blessings to all of you

It sounds like you have been busy. I'm glad you are having some nice weather. We have been having alot of storms here; strong winds, hail, and rain. Just as my garden is getting close to being dry enough to plant we will have another storm or temperatures will drop down into the 30's at night. Typical spring weather. I hope you have a wonderful week.
