It was my birthday today and it was a nice day. We serve coffee after church service,with saffron rolls and tiny cupcakes. Pennie last night brought me a bouquet of fruit some covered in chocolate. She and Brea got me a garden stake that says" I don't remember planting that." Pennie gave me a calendar with pictures of Maggie, Spanky, and my grandchildren on each month. The calendar starts with April. Peter and family called to wish me a Happy Birthday. Brea wished me a Happy Birthday in her blog and gave me a song.

Happy Easter

Wishing all a Blessed Easter!

We had a very nice Easter but very active. My son from Madison and his children came and looked for eggs and Easter baskets. It was a rush to get to church on time and were afraid we wouldn't find a place to sit ,but we did. It was a nice service.

Yesterday we went out all afternoon and I didn't notice how much standing I was doing and was still standing when I helped with the evening meal. We grilled even though it was cool. My legs felt it today. The BQ chicken was very good.

Why I Worship

Our church has asked for short writings on why we worship to be put in the newsletter. I thought I would put my ideas here.

God loves me and I love God is the main reason for my worship. My God is an awesome God. I can worship anywhere and I have worshiped in many places such as ,lakeside, canyon, and woods. I worship on Sunday in a church building with people from St Marks. When many people worship together and all have been given gifts for ministry there is strength, and support. During the service we receive communion which gives healing and forgiveness. God's word is read and we hear what God will have us do. With our gifts combined we are able to serve any many ways to many people in our country and others. These are the reasons for worshiping at St Marks.

Trapped by Jewel Quest2

I haven't written a blog for awhile. Why you ask? Jewel quest 2. I bought the game at Christmas but it sat on the desk . That was a good thing,but I didn't know that then. I started the game and I can't stop playing it . Late into the night and on into the morning I play,stopping only when my eyes are hurting . The day comes and I think about the game ,sneaking in to the computer to play. Poor Maggie, she is put out into the snow. She did bark to go out. There is much house work to do but I prefer the game. The laundry does get done and I do stop to feed Dr John. I keep loosing at the waterfall. I lost today at noon and was upset. Dr John and I decided not to eat lunch but to go out to dinner. We went to Applebees using our Christmas gift card. I had steak and shrimp it was very good. Well I have to go back to the game.
