This is the Easter message, that awakening is possible, to the goodness of God, the sacredness of human life, the sisterhood and brotherhood of all.

Anne Lamott


Day 5 of 50:   Put up a sign or banner that proclaims, He is risen!

Signs often remind us of who we are or where we’re going.  Like the male or female signs on restroom doors or no right turns at red lights.  Signs of Easter are all around us this time of year.  New birth and new life seem to be around every corner.   

I have a little chalk board in my kitchen and that is where I usually post something for the day, the month or the season and there is where you find my sign that proclaims He is Risen!

Remember who you are.   Remembering that we are more than the sum of our parts and  that there are precious things about us that are beautiful and unique because we are created in the image of God.  This is a source of joy and redemption for anyone walking a difficult road.

Today I’m thankful for:

1607.  for hot dogs any way you fix them!
1608.  for cheese it is good just about any way you use it
1609. for crescent rolls and all the wonderful ways to use them.

Those humorous signs were funny; needed the laugh after a long day of work :)

I like the visual reminder of He is Risen! I need to work on that this weekend.
