What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Ressurrection Sunday!

I have been given an embarrassment of riches today! Which really isn't the point of Resurrection Sunday, but you know, giving gifts is one of my main ways of expressing love, and I really do think that getting so many lovely things today is Christ's way of saying "I AM here, Michelle, right in the middle of this hard place with you, and I AM here, in the hearts of those that love you, in the hands of those that are near you, in the mouths of the ones that gather with you to celebrate today. I AM here."

Now for the a quick run-down of the delights of today. I slept in, (I've been having night mares each and every night this week) and when Mom came to wake me up I only half roused and then went back to sleep. And had a night mare. It was a rather detailed one involving the place I stayed in Ireland when I was on my mission trip, Harrison Ford (who was actually trying to get me and the rest of the poor prisoners out of there) and lots of very evil scientists who wanted to do nasty things to us. Harrison Ford had just worked out how we could get out of the place and I was about to run down a hall when Dad came to see if I was ready for breakfast and he woke me out of the night mare. Well, my heart hit like a trip hammer for over a minute and that was not the best way to wake. However, the day got better from there. Artchick had left my Easter present where I would see it first thing seeing as she wasn't there to give it to me in person ( I love him, he's a cuddly soft little lion that I named Jake in honor of Artchick's favorite actor) and the prettiest flower card with the sweet things written inside to make me, he honorary ''big sis'' mist up.

I dressed and went down to breakfast which was a virtual feast! We had ham and cheese and eggs (not that I ate any) and cranberry scones with pom butter on the side, and turkey sausage. I had a scone and some sausages and then we opened presents (we don't do candy). I got a bunny that sings, (so I'd laugh and smile more) and a basket of really pretty flowers (because I have been saying how much I want flowers right now) and a signed hard cover of The Icarus Hunt by Timothy Zahn! I was blown away. I got Mom a copy of The Nativity and Dad got a $25.00 gift certificate to Home Depot (TM), and I gave Artchick a DVD of The Secret Garden & A Little Princess. Then we all washed up together and church was "The Miracles of Jesus" DVD in small group. The teaching today was on the healing of the woman who had the issue of blood, and then Jarius' daughter. I really enjoyed it.We talked for a long bit about where we might go for vacation this coming year. Then I did some writing and Mom and Dad surfed the net.

We decided that we were going to skip lunch and we watched several Remmington Steele episodes instead and had more fun pointing out the fashion trends and old cars. We had dinner around 4:30 and it was comprised of filet minion, baked potatoes, and green beans with chocolate cake studded with jelly beans. Then, we watched the remaining Remmington Steele episodes, and decided after the second washing up, we would watch Wind in the Willows on PBS.

And that brings that day to a close. Hope you had a lovely time too everyone. Thanks for keeping me in your prayers. I really do appreciate it.
