R AND R SUNDAY / A day of hope
This is the 4th Sunday of Lent. Today is a day of relaxation from normal lenten rigors; a day of hope with Easter being at last within sight. We enter into the second part of Lent with a spirit of eagerness. It's very hard to believe that Easter is just a few weeks away now. It is also Mothering Sunday across the pond...the folks in the U.K. are celebrating Mothers day and I wish my friends there a wonderful day!
I am getting ready for Easter here at my house and I've got my rabbit sitting on the chair in the front room just waiting to sing to anyone that wants to press the button on his hand.
Here come Peter Cotton Tail....
I have always loved those little Beatrix Potter books, and especially the tale of that naughty rabbit. And I have one of her books sitting in the basket beside that same chair.
