The joy of Easter!

Now it is time to rejoice for what Jesus had done for us. Not that I am going to drink wine or be wild, but just be happy and merry.
Anyway,  I won this bottle of wine from out lottery at work some days ago and it feels always good to win something:) 

Since yellow is Easter color in Norway, I bought these orchids to decorate my kitchen table for the Easter.

It is still blooming after some days

Beautiful in near shot, isn't it?

Well what I had been doing in my spare time this Easter?
I began to crotchet a pink dress for a doll. It is big enough for a newborn baby too:)
Here is the beginning of my project.

It is soon finished

The finished product. My mother -in-law asked me if soemone is going to have a baby:)

My model doll. Too big for her.

I have to adjust the pattern next time to suit my doll or maybe buy a bigger doll or wait for my next girl grandchild:)

I have been out for a walk too and found these beauties around.

" Caught in the act"

 Still wishing you Happy Holy Week. Red color for Jesus blood.

Ending this post with this prayer I wrote for my other blog:

Father, thank you that I am like  a clay that you can mold 
with your gentle and loving hands.
It would be so marvelous to be decorated by your artistic mind.
To be admired because I am created by you.
Designed by the best  CREATOR of all.
Mold me Lord as a vessel that can be useful
for you and for others.
I pray in Jesus name.

How real is it to you? Crucifixion?

For me, it is everything. Because of what Jesus had done, I am now saved.

But for some, they have to do it again and again believing that they can pay for their sins and others. Or by doing so, they feel that they are suffering for Jesus. Do you believe in that?
In my opinion, they don't have to do that. Jesus suffered already for us all. They only have to believe and achieve Jesus  forgiveness. It is a free gift.
But remembering what Jesus had done is the true spirit of Holy Week.

Others will torture themselves because they thought that they can pay their sins by doing so. What is the use of that if their hearts are not truly repentant? 
What do you think?

Last year, I celebrated my with Holy Week with my family in the Philippines. 

We went to Bonifacio High Street to remember what Jesus had done for us.

Let us reminisce what Jesus did for all of us by reading the story.

Jesus said:

Garden of Gethsemane


Here was my family who pinned their green strips

Grandkids signed their names in the book

My son-in-law carried the cross to at least feel how Jesus felt.

My grandchildren wrote their prayers

Pieces of red cloths to be hammered on the cross. Sign of Jesus blood that was shed for our sins.

Thankful notes to Jesus

bread and wine at the end

Now we were all hungry after our pilgrimage:)

We went to this Restaurant to eat.

The foods that we ordered. Typical Filipino foods...

Pictures were taken last year. 
Saying goodbye with this picture. Me and my grandkids.

Food for the soul
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only Son,
that whoever believes in Him
shall not perish
but have eternal life.

John 3:16
