Yesterday


Yesterday

Yesterday – all my troubles seemed so far away …

We went to Bozeman; it’s an hour’s drive through the beautiful Madison River canyon.

Yesterday was a lovely 60 degree, blue sky day. Looking closely, we could see the grass is beginning to turn green. That silo house is about our halfway point.

Getting closer to Bozeman, the Bridger Mountains loomed majestically ahead of us. What a backdrop for a town, huh?

Shopping

Keeping the recommended six feet distance from everyone, we picked up a few groceries, some flowers and Easter cards, and then went to the pharmacy to pick up our prescriptions before heading back home.

There’s the silo house tucked down in a little valley, seen from the opposite direction with the Tobacco Root Mountains across the horizon. What a beautiful view!

Celebrating

While Bob drove us back toward our Madison Valley home, I wrote on the Easter cards and divvied up the roses to deliver to friends. It was Maundy Thursday… a day to commemorate Christ’s Last Supper, trial, and death. A somber time. Yellow roses help me remember the glorious sunrise that’s coming!

Yes, Easter’s on its way. We’re all on a “Stay at Home” routine (except for essential travel). Getting groceries and medications are considered essential. So are flowers and Easter cards!

First stop was at the home of two of our Sunday School children. We had not seen them since this Coronavirus lockdown began.

A few roses, a card to cheer them, a six-feet-distance hug, blow ’em a kiss … and we were on our way back home.

But First…

Some more deliveries… roses and cards to our neighbors… drop ’em off at their doorsteps… let ’em know we’re thinking of them. One neighbor put the roses in a vase, snapped a picture, and sent us a cheery message.

See how they brightened up their living room?

Yesterday

… all my troubles seemed so far away.

God’s rainbow… God’s promise

Yes,
our troubles seem to fade
as we reflect
on the reflections
of yesterday…

  • a day to take a little outing, pick up a few necessary items, and spread a little cheer
  • a day to look for the rainbow that promises a better tomorrow
  • a day to remember the Lord’s Last Supper and His death on the cross, BUT
  • a day to look forward to three days later… the Resurrection, and the Promise fulfilled.

Yesterday’s gone. Today is a day to spread the Good News.

What can you do to cheer up a neighbor’s day?

Easter is Coming! Take comfort! Claim peace! Spread LOVE! Take joy!

I wish you were near, my WordPress friends.
It’s “Good Friday!”
I’d deliver a few roses to you, too.

Hope of Easter


Today began with a Good Friday greeting.
It was a good morning –
-and a good afternoon
-and a good evening, too.

Did you begin with a Good Morning on Good Friday?

I hope your day was as special as mine.
After my Writers’ Group,
I attended our women’s group at church.
Then I came home and prepared the dinner
of ham and scalloped potatoes
that we enjoyed this evening with our grandson.
This evening we picked him up from his
Job Corps program and brought him
home for Easter weekend.
What a joy to have him here!

It’s late now … and I am ready for bed,
but I wanted to say Thank You.
Thank you for sharing this Good Friday
with your WordPress readers
and fellow bloggers.

Thank you for being part of the folks out there
who “Walk the Talk.”

May your Silent Saturday be meaningful
as you contemplate what that day
must have been like for
Christ on the cross.

Good Night!
See you tomorrow.

Wisdom Lives On

Maya Angelou
Was our Poet Laureate
Her wisdom lives on

Today’s Good Friday
A day to remember Christ
Gave more than His best

He gave us His all
That we’d have Eternity
There’s no greater gift

Live in His wisdom
Accept His wonderful grace
Now we know better
