Christmas & Easter

Well as my Pastor said on Easter Sunday “without Christmas there would be no Easter” Seasoned Christians know this. Yet Christmas seems to be a much bigger holiday than Easter. Easter doesn’t seem as important to the world. Everything was open ..even in our small conservative town. That seemed strange to me.

My pastor gave a a great sermon. It wasn’t the typical resurrection story. He skimmed through the whole bible and weaved everything together. It was a beautiful sermon.  One of the best Easter Sermons I have heard…honestly.

I had a rough day. I think it’s just a culmination of lots of things. I don’t want to complain about it all. But I boycotted my family on that day….and I sewed my heart away. I worked on Christmas projects. I made this cute little Christmas Present quilt:

I also made a Christmas runner and cut out a few more projects. So I can just sew when I have a moment here & there. I have work to do…..I have house stuff to catch up on….and paperwork. Sometimes I just have to zone out and work on something that takes me away. I would buy some calgon to take me away…but somehow..even though we have 2 bathrooms…..I can’t ever take a bath in peace without someone needing something. I can talk & sew at the same time. 🙂

Things started calming down that night. I think teenage years are just plain tough. No matter how you handle them.

But I a just going to keep looking up, trudging through and hopefully survive….no matter what I will have a smile in the end. It’s either because it’s over or because I lived …LOL. But a smile is a smile…right?

I hope you all have a blessed week. 🙂
