Metamorphosis Monday – Resurrection Garden   17 comments

Metamorphosis Monday

First  and foremost, I apologize for my lousy before picture.  While I was working on this project, I received a phone call that my mom had fallen on a sidewalk outside the tea room she was to celebrate her birthaday at with my sisters and nieces down in California.  So, needless to say I was a little distracted.  She is fine – just in pain and has two real nice black eyes!

So, the project I was working on was my Resurrection Garden centerpiece for Easter Sunday.  Here’s the before:


The picture above does not show my cool plate I purchased at Michael’s to transform into my Resurrection garden.  Oh well!

Here’s the finished project:


I used a lidded box for the empty tomb by cutting a door in the box. The stone that covered the tomb is a premade ornament that I covered with little stones which I also used on the tomb and the walkway to the tomb.  I also covered the tomb with some of the moss as well. Then I used mini succulents and pieces of flower arrangements to put the finishing touches on the garden.  A great project for Easter!

Have a wonderful Holy week everyone and I hope you have a chance to celebrate Easter Sunday thanking Jesus for dying on the cross for our sins. The reason for the true metamorphosis in my life!

Easter Monday – Remember…   2 comments



And he said to all, If anyone would come after me,
let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
Luke 9:23

Lest I forget Gethsemane,
Lest I forget Thine agony;
Lest I forget Thy love for me,
Lead me to Calvary.

Jennie Evelyn Hussey

May I never lose the wonder, the wonder of the cross
May I see it like the first time,
Standing as a sinner lost.
Undone by mercy and left speechless,
Watching wide-eyed at the cost.
May I never lose the wonder the wonder of the cross.

The Legend of the Dogwood Poem   12 comments


My  sister posted about the Legend of the Dogwood today and since I recently discovered that I had two Dogwood trees in my backyard, I decided to share this poem.  I never knew that these two trees were Dogwoods.  It gives me a new appreciation for this beautiful tree.  Even though it is just a legend,  I appreciate the reminder of my Savior’s sacrifice for me whenever I see these trees!

Blessings on you as we anticipate Resurrection Sunday!

I ran across this on a couple of blogs I visited and just love this idea that Amy over at Signs, Miracles, and Wonders has come up with. Here’s what she says…

“I think you are going to love this! The instructions are easy. Just write a post on your blog about a song. It can be a song that has spoken to your heart during a difficult time… a song that brings back a special memory… a song that makes you want to sing along to the top of your lungs… a song that makes you glad… a song that makes you want to dance… a song that has inspired you… a song that makes you feel like the words were written just for you… a song that makes your soul sing.

You can include the lyrics or maybe include the You Tube video. After you write the post, come back here and link your post to Mr. Linky at the bottom of the page. Then you can come back and read about all the other songs and stories that are posted. I’m sure many of you love to worship through music and feel like God speaks to you through the words of songs just like I do. I can’t wait to hear all of your stories about it :)”

Now isn’t that a great idea! Here’s my song for this week…



Sanctus (Holy)

In earth and heaven there is none like you (Sanctus, Sanctus).
None worthy to ascend Your throne and rule (Sanctus, Sanctus).
Righteous and mighty King, saints and angels join to sing. (Sanctus, Sanctus)
Rex tremendae majestitis, rex excelsis Gloria, Gloria, Sanctus.

Savior, You’re the perfect, spotless lamb (Sanctus, Sanctus).
My every breath is given by Your hand (Sanctus, Sanctus).
You reign with power on high – we fall before you and we cry (Sanctus, Sanctus).
Rex tremendae majestitis, rex excelsis Gloria, Gloria, Sanctus.

With reverence and with fear with trembling lips – Lord we draw near singing
Holy, Holy, King of awesome majesty, King of highest glory, glory, Sanctus glory.

I just love this song.  It is so appropriate for this Easter weekend.  I couldn’t find a video on it but you can hear a sample here

Blessings to all this Easter Weekend!
