It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 4, Page 21, Book 19

An Easter Prayer

God give us eyes to see
the beauty of the Spring
And to behold Your majesty
in every living thing.

And may we see in lacy leaves
and every budding flower
The Hand that rules the universe
with gentleness and power.

And may this Easter grandeur
that Spring lavishly imparts
Awaken faded flowers of faith 
lying dormant in our hearts.

And give us ears to hear, dear God,
the Springtime song of birds
With messages more meaningful
than man’s often empty words.

Telling harried human beings
who are lost in dark despair
‘Be like us and do not worry
for God has you in His care’.

Helen Steiner Rice

April 21st - Easter Sunday

It’s Easter Day and I hoping you all have a wonderful day.  It is such a beautiful time of year. I found a cute little piece of advice years ago and am sharing it again today.  It really is wise for those that have eyes to see and ears to hear.

All I Need to Know about Life I learned from the Easter Bunny. 

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

Walk softly and carry a big carrot

Everyone needs a friend who is all ears

There is no such thing as too much candy

All work and no play can make you a basket case.

Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day

Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits

Keep your paws off other people’s jellybeans

Good things come in small sugarcoated packages

The grass is greener in someone else’s basket

An Easter bonnet can tame even the wildest hare.

To show your true colors you have to come out of the shell.

The best things in life a still sweet and gooey.

Those were both nice, Ma. The poem from Helen Steiner Rice and what we learned from the Easter Bunny. So very cute for this Easter Day!
