Posts Tagged ‘April’

Well I wondered what April would bring, and as in an earlier post there have been many blessings this month. Not just for me, but for others I know. But, April 30th was the first day of my new part time job. And, there is the possibility of making it into something special, for me and for the company. Time will tell, but for now I am grateful for another new beginning and the joy of another step on my journey.

It is a beautiful day and I am grateful for the gift of our Savior and His sacrifice for us.  I am grateful for God’s unconditional love for each and every one of us.

Normally I spend this day celebrating with friends…their extended family with 6 adults and 10 children…all of whom I love dearly.  For some reason I felt I wanted a quiet Easter day.  I mentioned this to a single friend of mine over a week ago.  She said she also turned down an invitation by two different families this year; that she felt the same way.  So we decided we would have a quiet meal together today, conversation between two friends, a game of Scrabble while the Lamb, potatoes, and carrots roast in the oven.  Then we will watch a joyful happy movie…Happy Feet Two 🙂

I hope you all are having a beautiful, peaceful, happy, joyful , and blessed day.

Daisies And Drops

Yes, it is the first day of April 2012 🙂

What a joyous way to begin April, a beautiful month of the year, this year beginning with Holy Week ~ Palm Sunday.  A week of sadness for Jesus’ death on the cross to pay for our sins, then His rising from death on Easter Sunday…joy, joy, joy.

Per my previous post, for me April is the month, the time of year when I love to begin anew…something.  What will it be this year?

One year ago tomorrow, April 2nd, I put my house FOR SALE BY OWNER sign out front.  There have been some lookers, a few who really liked it, but no offers yet.  Why should they, when they can spend the extra time, effort, frustration of buying a foreclosure or short sale for almost nothing!  My soul knows when the time is right it will sell.  Earthly reality is that our economy is still bad and the housing market still crappy.  So, I wonder if I should take the sign down and wait for, who knows how long, for the housing prices to return to more appropriate values so traditional sales will actually sell for more than what is owed to the mortgage company!  Or should I just leave the sign up, and pray for a miracle!!  After all, it is just the beginning of April.  What surprise blessings are in store this month?

New Start by Ann Marquette

A great day began with blue skies and sunshine, when it was expected we would have rain this morning.

A friend who recently had two stints put in her heart’s clogged artery was told by her cardiologist, after doing an echocardiogram, he didn’t think her heart doing as well as it should and that she needed to have a defibrillator implanted. He referred her to a specialist surgeon who does these implants at Emory Hospital. I took her this morning and after meeting with him she came out smiling. He advised that she may not need one of these devices. It has not been three months yet since her stints were put in, and apparently it takes that long for the heart to start doing much better. He will see her again the end of April and do another echocardiogram to see how she is doing then. Ah thank you God for this hopeful good news.

While waiting at the doctor’s office for this friend, I did some reading of the inspirational kind. Hope and joy fills my heart when I read the stories of other’s coincidence experiences which changed their lives for the better.

Great time to rekindle A Blank Slate within myself to begin anew with hope, confidence, faith, and excitement for surprises to come https://amarquette333.wordpress.com/2010/09/17/a-blank-slate/  

Happiness is ~ Heart Smiles, and I have one right now. Do you?
