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!

Arizona in Spring   5 comments

Spring Training in Arizona is not only about baseball!  If you come to Arizona for Spring Training, take a day and enjoy the spectacular desert beauty that Arizona offers.  We headed to Sedona on Saturday to do some hiking and exploring.  What a beautiful place to see and admire God’s glorious creation!

Sedona is home of the of the redrock monoliths named Coffepot, Cathedral, Bell and even Snoopy because their massive shapes resemble these objects.  The church in the collage above is the The Chapel of the Holy Cross.  This chapel is a great start to a day filled with hiking and exploring.

We also discovered the beautiful flowers and cactus of the Arizona desert.  I was able to get a picture of a bird finding some shade in one of the succulents.

There are so many hiking trails and scenic views in Sedona.  You really need more than one day to discover this beautiful area!  I would highly recommend a visit in spring – the temperatures are really nice for hiking at that time of the year!

Okay, we are now off to the Angel/Dodger game.  Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
