Tiptoe Through the Sunny Tulips


At times, in New England, we don't see the sun for many days in a row.

So when my good ol' girlfriend, Patti, brought over yellow tulips last week, they reminded me of that golden ball in the sky.



It's not a bouquet of tulips she bought. It's tulips planted in a pot which, of course, can be replanted whenever the frozen ground decides to thaw.



Bright yellow paper around the pot looks cheerful, too.

Plus, I added a very Eastery-looking doily underneath. So pretty, don't you think?


Now there's  a bit of "sunshine" in the middle of the kitchen table and it makes me so happy!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR TULIP?

Palm Sunday



Christians celebrate today, Palm Sunday.

It signifies Christ's entrance into Jerusalem just a week before his death and resurrection.

People waved palms in the air and placed them on the ground  as He came triumphantly into the city. 

 No one hated Him then.

 No one wanted Him crucified. 

It was a  day to celebrate.

 
Ever since childhood, we brought palms home from church on this day.

We'd hang them up, usually above the doorways, or behind crucifixes, in our house.

Some people make crosses from them, such as shown at the top of the post.

When I think of what followed Palm Sunday, the beginning of the Passion of Christ, my heart gets so sad. 

 Tears fall spontaneously when pondering His suffering and death.

But today we will rejoice.

DO YOU CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY?

Enjoy the Weekend!





Weekend!

The word, itself, makes most of us smile.



It's so wonderful to sleep in, or plan a day trip, go shopping or hang around the house, and just enjoy each moment of freedom!

A change from the weekday routine is always good.



It's refreshing.

There is still a "to do" list to contend with, but if things on it don't get done, who cares?



There's always tomorrow.


So, enjoy your weekend to the hilt!

HOW WILL YOU INCORPORATE FUN INTO YOUR WEEKEND?
