i went around and took them. . .when the light was best in the house, etc., but sometimes i feel i post too much secular stuff. . .i need to post more about JESUS. . .
and since it is EASTER time. . .and this is truly a Christian's happiest holiday to celebrate. . .i pray that you know that Easter is about Jesus being crucified for us. . .for all of us. . .and that HE wants everyone to be in Heaven with HIM!
You can't go to heaven just by being a good person, you must be saved!
If you aren't saved, it is so easy to be! That's why little boys and girls become Christians at such an early age. . .but adults think it's something that is so hard to do! All you have to do is admit that you are a sinner. . .you must believe in Jesus. . you must believe that He is God's son, that He gave his life on the cross so we could live forever with Him in Heaven. You must believe he died on that cross, BUT He rose again, and finally, you must confess your sins to Jesus. Pray that He will enter your heart, and you will be saved!!!!
Thank you Jesus that it's that easy!!!
Ok.....I had to get that off my chest!
Here are our Easter decorations. . . . . .
Jesus is KING!
an easter fairy bunny. . .
some of my mother-in-law's rabbit decor. . . .
I bought a plain easter egg garland at TJ MAX.
found some linen material, backed it with felt and wonder under and wrote letters on each to spell THANK YOU JESUS. i hole punched both corners and tried it onto the egg garland with some raffia.
i also added strips of material, ribbons, twine, and other things around the eggs.
THANK YOU JESUS mantle. . . .

well. . .
i've told you so many times about my friend's NIOKA GREEN STORE!
my other precious friend L (that needs to start a blog or keep one going) and I went to visit her on saturday at the southern market's spring fling! it was really neat! it was like an outdoor fancy yardsale with new stuff. . does that make sense? . . .and if you would look and dig, you could find some super great buys! i bought a wreath that i've "re-done" and it's on my front door. . .and some monogrammed buttons that i'll share with you soon!!
ok...here's a little glimpse of her store inside the market. . . . .
i say look at that gorgeous piece of furnture, but she'll say how that piece is from reclaimed wood and she'll go on about this and that and she just draws you in with her knowledge about all things green!!!
