The fast is over and it is time to feast! I am happy to be back in this little space and happy to be feasting later on with friends. We had a busy and difficult Lent and I am glad to send it to the archives of life.
So out came the Easter baskets and I have had a happy time the last week buying and making sweets and gathering little gifts to make them festive and special. It's a big job for seven baskets!
Over the next few days I'll be updating you on what we have been up to here at the Bonny Blue House, in the meantime I hope all of you have a beautiful and blessed Easter celebration.
O mystery great and glorious,
That mortal flesh should conquer death,
And all our human pains and wounds
The Lord should heal by bearing them.
Behold how man, though crushed by death,
Now does arise and live with Christ,
While death, repelled and robbed of might,
Dies from its own malignant sting.
