the quiet of home ... sweet stillness of the morning ... my favourite time of day ...
yet once again i'm going to leave it behind and venture out a bit further ... to the west coast to visit my sister and brother ... i haven't been that way since 1996 ... long time! of course my siblings have visited us here in 'middle earth' ... but it's been over 2 years since the last visit ... leo is being supportive about the trip ... my 10 days away ... i've stocked up the fridge for him and he says he will enjoy watching the hockey playoffs while i'm gone ...
i've been an absent blogger too ... it seems my timing is always off ... or the words just don't come ... sigh ... which leaves a poorly tended blog ... so sorry to those of you who still keep in touch!!
well off to do some last minute stuff - aren't there always those!!! blessings on you!

i'm reading/studying the gospel of matthew in my devotions ... at the moment, i'm in the week before the crucifixion ... those poor disciples, with their expectations of an earthly kingdom, boy were they disappointed and confused when Jesus died!! but praise God for miracles!! ... their disappointment fled when the incredible happened - Jesus actually rose from the dead! just like He said He would ... they were shocked ... just as shocked as we will be when Jesus returns again - just like He said ... i mean, i believe it as a future event - but what if this is the year it actually happens? i will be so surprised!! because it is something way out of my normal expectations for a day - to be transformed in the twinkling of an eye - so, as i think of this Easter time, i also wonder ... is He coming back soon?
