Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Project 365 - Week 17 - Holy Week

It has been a wonderful Holy Week and the weather has been to die for.  I went back to school this week after break and had a truly great week.....although I am counting down...5 weeks to go.  Sara, at ....make music from your heart, is once again hosting Project 365 and if you would love to see some truly remarkable pictures head on over there using the link I have provided for you and check them out.  You won't be sorry.

One of my bowling buddies sent a pale lavendar hydrangea when my mom died and then Susan and Chuck gave me a Runaway rose for my birthday.  Susan, bless her heart, planted them all in my backyard before they left on Friday.  She has such a green thumb....and works for a landscaping company.  I love it when she comes and spruces up my yard...she makes it my therapy...and it always works.

A Holy Week reminder - a cross in the yard of Comer United Methodist Church in Avondale mill village.  This is the church my grandparents attended for many years and my godmother still attends.

55 Iris Avenue holds many precious memories for me.  This used to be my Granparents house and inside this small dwelling a whole lot of loving took place.

A really cool barn on CR 16 just past Renee's house.  I have eyeballed it several time but today with the sun setting behind it I could not pass up the opportunity to take a picture.

Wednesday, April 20th
 I had to go to the Probate Judges office in Dadeville on my way home today, so I decided to take a short cut to the house and ended up on CR 79 on the other side of the Horseshoe Bend Military Park.  It was so very hazy on my way home and I was beginning to think I wish I had gone the long way when this chimney appeared.

Thursday between the end of the school day and bowling we went to the military tribute park in the Charles E. Bailey Sportsplex.  There are a lot of military things there and on the WWII monument my Uncle Cecil, dad, and Uncle Drew are all noted.  I have to admist it was really cool to go and walk through it.

Friday, April 22nd
This weekend is a busy one.  This is not even everything that is going on.  We had to be at the church at 4:30 to cook the breakfast for after Sunrise service and then we had regular church at 11.  Friday night though Beth and I practiced the special for Sunday and then the four of us went to the Valley and ate at Del Rio's.  They have wonderful food and amazing service.  If you are ever in the Valley (Lanett)...you need to stop in.  They are located on Hwy 49.

Saturday, April 23rd
We hid 188 eggs on Saturday.  While the big people hid the eggs several of us kept them occupied in the Fellowship Hall with a story and games.

The duck walk race

Lining up for the next race....girls only!

Young and young at heart all participated.

 I got a wee bit sidetracked during the egg hunt.

 Let Them Hunt Eggs!

I LOVE Spring!  Don't you?  Have a Blessed Day!

I love the picture of the barn. It looks like one of those moments that came right out of the past long enough for you to take the picture.

I am actually glad that our church doesn't have a sunrise service....I am not a morning person...at.all.

I really miss having easter egg hunts with my kids. last year we invited a family over with young children...loved watching them hunt eggs!!!

I used to know somebody from Lanett!
Sounds like you had a really busy, long day. I'm sure you enjoyed it!

Love the Dandelion picture - it was worth the distraction :)

The red barn is really cool AND the chimney. I'm glad you explained that it was foggy - I was wondering what was wrong with your camera.

The barn & chimney are both so pretty! It looks like you had a good week. I hope you're doing well.

Hugs & love,
