Started feeling the urge to run again.

I started a simple couch to 5 k program. I like those programs, they are fun and easy. Getting out is so relaxing. This is my first time running in town, before I lived in the country or on an island. City running is a lot more entertaining, and one can take different routes each day and see different things, makes for an interesting run. I love looking at the old houses. I don’t even mind the cracked streets.

I have heard some people comment about the roads in my town but I actually like them, it’s character.

He is Risen!

On Easter morning with our youth at church my husband would say “He is risen!” they would just stare back at him blankly not knowing the traditional response of “He is risen indeed!”. Now they know though. I have always loved that greeting. Easter is such a wonderful Holiday because our Lord has risen and like an old hymn “Because He lives” goes

Because He Lives
I Can Face Tomorrow
Because He Lives
All Fear Is Gone
Because I Know He Holds The Future
And Life Is Worth The Living
Just Because He Lives

Another Hymn I like is “Hallelujah what a savior”

Man of Sorrows! what a name
For the Son of God, Who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

and “He could have called ten thousand angels”

He could have called ten thousand angels
To destroy the world and set him free
He could have called ten thousand angels
But he died alone, for you and me.

So many good hymns. I grew up in a Hymn singing family and I sang in choir at a Baptist church in my youth so I had the honor of learning a lot of great hymns. I like to pull out the hymn book and sing to my kids at bed time now and again, I have not done it in a few years. I will have to start it up again.

Easter is a Holiday we can celebrate every day so maybe I should just go around greeting people with “He is risen”, now that would be a conversation starter.

Wedding ring

I lost my wedding ring a few months back. My optimistic self thinks it will turn up or at least that is what I did think but now I am thinking it maybe gone. Maybe, I say, it could still turn up but until than. . .

this will take its place. I really like it and it only cost 9 bucks. I got the idea while looking in the jewelry section at Walmart and I saw this and you know, who would even know its a fake besides me? I really love my fake!!!
