Easter Already?!

Wow...how time flies. Seems it was just turning 2008 and now the bunny is hopping around. It's cold here, again. A little rainy. But Spring is just over the horizon.

Georgia spent the night at Grammie and Poppie's. She "helping" Grammie make Easter cookies this morning. We'll dye eggs later today. She'll have a rather creative day. ;)

Then, I finally fire up the grill after a few months delay and serve some steaks. Mmmmm. Nothing like some meat off the fire!

It's still rather funny what all goes on during Easter. Bunnies, candies, baskets, eggs, sunrise services, big hats. But the real meaning of Easter has nothing to do with all of this. It's Jesus Christ's victory over death.

His death, burial, and resurrection symbolizes the complete verification of all that Jesus preached and taught during His three-year ministry. If He had not risen from the dead, if He had merely died and was buried, He would have been considered just another great teacher...a good man. However, His victory over death proved that He was the Son of God...God among us...and that is why the Scriptures are alive and well today. The Living Word is just that...words that are alive and relevant today even though they capture a time over 2000 years ago.

May you know His love today....

I Can Honestly Say Jon Is My Best Friend

At the beginning of this year, these were Kate Gosselin's words in an interview with Today's Christian Woman: "I can honestly say Jon is my best friend."

Kate also says, "When the babies were born, I was well aware that our marriage could crumble. It was close to doing so at times. But we survived that first year. And then the second one. And then each year after that. Even though the issues have changed, it's never gotten easier.
"But Jon and I are more determined than ever that we're in this together. We've told our kids many times that we're always going to be a family. There are no other options. Sure, Jon and I take our stress out on each other, and no, that's not always good or healthy. But we work hard as a team every day."

Why The Hate For Jon & Kate?

This is a bit odd for me to write a post about "Jon & Kate Plus Eight." The only reason I watch the show is if Kim has Netflixed a season (we don't get TLC) and I'm relaxing with her. Kim's a fan of it and has read Kate's book. But why this post?

This family lives in our neighbor-state Pennsylvania, Kim and I concluded that Jon's personality is very similar to mine, and I'm sick of all the trash about them on the web and in the blogosphere.


Die Rush Limbaugh!

On the Eve of New Year's Eve, Rush Limbaugh is rushed to a Hawaii hospital with chest pains. News reports mention his condition as "serious" but little information is available. Hours later, it's reported that he's "resting comfortably" at the hospital.

The hours in between paint a pathetic picture of our country:

New York Daily News described Limbaugh as a "radio loudmouth" and a "right-wing talk show host." The article also mentions that Rush's "nemesis" President Obama and "target of Limbaugh's bile" Nancy Pelosi were also vacationing in Hawaii this week.
