Hope you love the flowers as much as Roy and I do, and I just want you to know that my life was in danger while I was taking these pictures  standing on the side of a busy highway.  Just so I would have something blue to post, (if you are believing this story, call me I have more to tell you).

LOVE YOU ALL……”BLUE” GOAT LADY

MY POEM FOR EASTER SUNDAY

Jesus of Galilee

 

JESUS

Jesus was hanging on the Cross in agony,
Oh!  The shame of it all that day;
He suffered, Bled and Died for you and me,
Never forget Calvary and don't forget to pray.
Remember Jesus of Galilee.

Women followed Jesus of Galilee,
Standing to "watch"...a long way off;
Then went to prepare spices for His body,
Love of a great degree, while others
walked away to scoff,
At Jesus of Galilee.

The women returned the first day of the week,
It was very early in the morning;
The body of Jesus they came to seek,
They loved Him, still, in this new day's dawning,
This Man of Galilee.

The stone was found to be rolled away,
The body of Jesus was no longer there;
Two men stood in shining garments that day,
The women were afraid and filled with care,
For Jesus of Galilee.

The men asked, "Why seek the living among the dead?"
The Son of Man was delivered to the hands
of sinful men;
The women remembered, then, the words
Jesus had said,
He would be Crucified, but the third day
He would rise again,
He is Risen!  This Jesus of Galilee.

Jesus said He would go but again return,
The time of His coming now draws near;
To see Him "descend" from Heaven; do we yearn?
Or will our hearts be filled with fear,
For this same Jesus of Galilee?
(St. Luke 24)

 

Roy and I send each and everyone of you a large basket of God’s Blessings.  Happy Easter !

Home, Tired, Broke BUT…Had a Great Time….

Our adventure started about 10:00 am when Sharon drove in and presented me with this wonderful Easter Plate for the lake house.053 We decided to go in Sharon’s SUV, so we would have more room to haul our treasures home. Great Idea from our point of view, bad idea from the husband’s point of view…now they can spend more money!

The sun is shinning and we have 175.6 miles to go and just think of all the stores we will see in those miles.

We arrived in Wimberley about 2:00 and had lunch and then began our shopping. There are many darling stores in downtown Wimberley.

I found these cups with “goats” on them.

002

One of the cute shops in Wimberley.

Here are some cute ideas we saw in some to the shops.

Then we found the wine shop and they were having wine tasting..can you imagine.

011

050

Bought this wonderful candle and several bottles of wine…couldn’t be rude after they let us taste all the wine, could we?

After a few more wonderful stores, we decided we should find our B & B and that is what we did after a while….

High Point Manor is delightful, different, peaceful and we had a huge cabin for just two ladies, There are animals everywhere, so you know I was in heaven.

LODGE024

The was the main Lodge, office Dinning room, and I think 6 rooms each with their own bath. There was also an office, kitchen and large living room with a huge Easter Tree.

This is the back of the lodge.

We got our key and headed to our cabin. We were in the Magnolia Cottage.

013

012

This was our Cottage in the trees. We had 2 bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bath.

Plenty of room for us.

We ventured down the road about 1 mile for dinner and my brother and sister-in-law joined us. Great time had by all.

Time to head to Cottage and crash…Big Day tomorrow.

Breakfast in the Dinning Room, eggs, bacon, all kinds of toast, juices, fruit, cereal, bagels, …you get the idea.

Off to Wimberley Trade Days. We were to meet Dixie of French Lique and Candy of Candy Rock at 9:00 and any others that came. Candy’s mother was visiting her and she lives in Huntsville, over near us, and Candy’s neighbor Sandy. We all introduced our selves and Dixie gave each of us a little sachet pouch with lavender she had grown.

We decided that it was going to be hard to keep us together, so we would just meet back for lunch. My brother and sister-in-law also met us at lunch. A brief visit then off to do more shopping.

It was a beautiful day, there were 400+ vendors and lots of people.

Scenes first thing in the morning.
