Surprises, sacrifices and schedules

This is Holy Week in the Christian faith, the week of remembering Christ’s sacrifice for us. It is coming into a weekend of special services and celebrations, family dinners and reunions. I hope it is also a time of reflection for all God has provided for us through the Cross and His unfathomable Love, much more than is realized or that we can even understand.

This weekend is especially wonderful for me because last Sunday we were surprised by the arrival of our daughter who lives in Alberta. She showed up for a three-week visit, which is a blessing to this mother’s heart. For the first time in a few years we have all four of our girls home for a few occasions – one daughter’s birthday, Easter, Mother’s Day. I love it! And tomorrow morning we – and some other family members – are all going to the Good Friday service where I fellowship. That means a lot to me.

On another topic — Now that I have access to my computer only half the time, my posts are having to be scheduled when I can manage to prepare them – which explains why I got two posts up last week when I was not online, in case anyone was wondering about that. A Twitter pal noticed.  🙂  WordPress has this great feature where a blog entry can be scheduled to be posted whenever you want it to be seen. Gotta love that! The only problem is that I can’t reply to comments unless I am here. But don’t let that stop you! 🙂

I plan to soon get another book review up followed by an interview, and another one is already planned for early May as part of a blog tour. So, if you enjoy those then please keep checking back.

I’m trying to keep up between times spent with my dad, but not doing as well as I would like in the other things. Hopefully, I will improve. My time management skills are severely lacking.

So, how are you spending the Easter weekend?

And on the topic of time management, how do you pull it all together?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. I’m so happy for you that your daughters are home! What a glorious celebration. We will be a small group this Easter, just my husband and me here at our house with my mom and dad and my husband’s father, but we will celebrate with joyous hearts. The next weekend we will have a larger family celebration because my niece is graduating from college. A lovely family time! Happy Easter, Polilla! He is Risen!


    • Sue, thanks for sharing and for your happiness for me. Family is so important, and it means a lot to be able to get together at these times.
      Yes! He is Risen indeed! Happy Easter, Sue.


  2. So nice for you and your husband to have the whole family together for Easter.

    We’re having a quiet Easter this year. My son is coming out for a visit today. He and my daughter both have to work on Easter Sunday.


  3. Hi Lynn!
    Thank you for stopping by my blog! I’m thrilled for the blessing of a new found friendship!!
    We are enjoying Easter weekend in the mountains of NC…my husband, our youngest daughter, our oldest daughter and her husband!! We’re missing the other two girls and their hubbies, but look forward to all being together to celebrate my husbands birthday next weekend.
    I’m praying God’s richest of blessings as you celebrate His resurrection!


    • Hi Kristi, thanks for stopping in! I don’t think I said, but I found your blog through Twitter.

      Having four girls makes life quite interesting, doesn’t it? 🙂 I pray your Easter weekend is especially blessed.
      Thank you for your prayers.


  4. Ooooh! I’m enjoying being with my family this weekend. Hopefully my mother-in-love in coming over this evening to hang for a bit, then tomorrow I’ll be worshiping at our sunrise service, then the 11am service and THEN we head to Cordova to spend the day with my mom and sister.

    Looking forward to it all!

    Happy Easter, My friend!


    • Donna, your thankful spirit is a fine example to your children. As Paul said, “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4)
      Happy Easter, dear girl.
