Happy Easter and Passover!




Easter baloon

To children everywhere Easter is jelly beans, bunnies, plastic eggs filled with candy and money, baskets full of chocolate and all things that are sweet and delicious.

To adults it has more meaning – Christ has arisen!

It is a time to reflect on our own self worth.

It is a time to put our best foot forward in God’s image.

It is a time to teach our children the real reason for Easter and Passover.

It is a time to be kind and caring and carry this theme throughout the year.

It is a time to love one another and accept our differences.

It is a time to encourage our children to be the best that they can be.

It is a time to do all we can do to make our world a better place.

It is a time to pray to God to give us the strength and courage and conviction to do all the above.

I pray that everyone will have a blessed and Happy Easter and Passover!

My cactus is doing its best to send along some flowers for Easter. For that I am thankful! It also flowers around Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Here is a lovely Easter Flower Basket that I plan to share on Sunday with my family.

Thank you for stopping by! It’s always nice to see you! Come by again soon!


Please excuse the promotion below. Couldn’t help myself. I had to mention how important it is for children to love one another not just today but every day.

A perfect book for Easter is Lamby the Lonely Lamb – about a purple lamb. Check it out on Amazon. I wrote it for my granddaughter when she was only four years old. She is now eight! Time does fly!

This book teaches children to be kind to one another and accept differences of color.

Book Blurb:

Lamby is a very different lamb because of his color. He is very lonely and only wants to be accepted by the other lambs. Find out what lesson Lamby learns when a little girl, Leah, comes to the farm where Lamb lives.




Happy Reading! Reading is good for your health!

Blessings of the season to you and yours and lots of hugs!

      Thank you, Michelle! I hope you had a lovely Easter too! Did you receive the ebook copy of my new children’s book, Clarence Henry the Hermit Crab? I will send you a pdf copy of Lucy the Talented Toy Terrier too. If you can, a review of each would be wonderful! No rush though! Thank you so much! Maybe it went into your spam folder. Please let me know if you find it. I will try to send the Lucy one today. I think your little granddaughters will enjoy it. 🤗 😘 💕

        Yes, I have it! I will get to it soon! Thank you. It’s been a busy couple of weeks. And add in Easter and my husband’s surgery yesterday. Lucy sounds like a cute book. ❤️❤️❤️

      • jjspina says:

        Oh, I’m sorry. Didn’t know your husband had surgery. I hope all is well with him soon. No rush on the reviews. I hope your granddaughters enjoy the stories. 🤗 😘 ❤️ Take care, Michelle! Blessings & prayers going your way!
