It is now almost 8:45. I have been to the bakery, the drug store, the grocery store and the cemetery. I am ready to do some dishes and clean a bit. I do not think I will go out and about any more today. Actually I probably should not as my energy level is low but God's grace is with me this week and I will not celebrate by eat much until tomorrow. The eating part has been very good. I have thought much about our Lord's suffering, about Gail's suffering and spent time thinking about my walk with the Lord. I need and I should take it deeper so that I can hear him more, feel him more and love him more. I am excited for tomorrow and to experience the risen Christ in a new way. I think I will feel it more than any other year. Maybe that is because Gail is not with me and I miss her so much but I don't know.
As I drove home from cemetery this morning the sight was almost breathtaking. I drove over the highway 55 bridge and to my right I could see downtown St. Paul, to my left I could see downtown Minneapolis, almost straight ahead was Fort Snelling, I said Lord you are so glorious, you are so mighty, you are so loving thank you for everything and especially thank you for all of the wonderful years with Gail.
I did get an Easter egg coloring kit so I will color a dozen eggs this morning. Nothing fancy just bright colored eggs to symbolize the bright light that Jesus is in my and our lives.
I must get to work but will sit down for a bit and read the paper. I am not supposed to get the Saturday but it was at my door so will read it before I get busy.
