March 15, 2008 ~ Saturday
It's snowing and the sun is shining...spring is here...along with the robins AND bunnies. 13 or 14 bunnies in all, about 5-6 weeks old...and the 2 moms, and the 2 dads, and one about 8 weeks old. They are so much fun to watch, the little ones***we REALLY have to get a live-trap!!!
Wall-hangings...7 almost done here and three in a store downtown...and none sold. Am hoping tourists will really 'go for them' this summer, either here or in Talkeetna. And, I've started printing pictures for matting...
Holy Week ~ Jesus' passion, death and resurrection. Speading the gospel, the reason for being when we die we will be with Christ forever! We also celebrate the Seder Passover...since our pastor first came five years ago. It brings into perspective the Jewish 'traditions', remembering the Passover of the angel in Egypt just before the exodus...those who put the blood of the lamb on the door-posts were passed-over by the angel of death...also symbolizing Jesus' blood shed for us. We have worship after the Seder on Maundy Thursday...Tenebrae service on Good Friday...a prayer vigil from then until 6:30am Easter when we celebrate Sonrise service. An awesome time for reflection, for repentance, for forgiveness, for celebration!
We are in the ...of buying a computer, etc. and printer for the church. WE ARE GOING HI-TECH!!! Good thing...cuz we were still in the stone age when it came to technology...just hooked up to the net 3 weeks ago! Now we are practicing with powerpoint on the laptop since we have a sound/projection system installed (both donated)...also 3 weeks ago. And...guess who gets to use them the most...YEA!

March 6, 2008 Thursday
Beautiful blue sky! A nice day for a drive...back from our daughter's bariatric doctor over 200 miles away where there isn't any snow; HOWEVER, a lot of snow between here and there. Three weeks ago I was getting a banner ready for a ministry fair, but was interrupted by Kelly ending up in the hospital for stomach pain/dehydration...ulcer(S) is the diagnosis, so will treat with two different meds and soft diet for 6 weeks and make the trip to her doctor again to determine what next to do. The banner did get done...lots of people at the fair so maybe some will remember the name *ATHELAS OUTDOOR MINISTRY*. Also, typing the orders' of service on power point for Sundays and Wednesday Lenten services and will try to install software to help with that this next week. AND...after a three week 'hiatus' from wall hangings, will start sewing again in hopes of selling a bunch...somewhere...somehow.
The Eastern Front is really pretty...mountains to the west full of snow...prairie to the east with no snow...God's handiwork displayed everwhere!
