A Haven for Vee

An Easter Project, A Moon, and a Snowpile

Yes, I am posting a photo of that crazy snowpile. Sitemeter shows me that people arrive just to see that thing! If that's why you're here, just scroll down as it's the last picture.

This photo is just for Mari-Nanci whom I told last night that I couldn't see the moon because of cloud cover. No sooner had I shut down the computer than in flooded that familiar light. Grabbed the camera, opened the door, and found the moon sitting right there waiting for me. I didn't even have to go outside in the wind and cold.

Yesterday, as I was tidying and primping in preparation for Easter, I realized that there was not one decoration that spoke of Easter's true meaning. Visiting Manuela, I was reminded of this idea.

It was such an easy thing to do...all completed in about 30 minutes, including the time it took to scrounge for the supplies. You can see Manuela's right here on March 18.

...and Kari & Kijsa have done a number of these including this one right here.

The Snowbank...enough said about this! LOL!

If you can hang around for one more thought. Sometimes in the middle of a life mess, I wonder how it'll ultimately work out. Some things have speedy results and others just linger on and on. You know how that goes...

But, whether issues are resolved quickly or last f-o-r-e-v-e-r, none of humanity will ever know (praise God!) the despair that those who stood at the foot of the cross (or hid in denial) knew. Oh, yes, they had been told that good things were going to happen, but they didn't "get it." I don't blame them for this...I don't get much either. Can there be any greater despair than to watch the Son of God die? To watch hope die? We, on the other hand, know that Sunday morning dawns with all the hope of the ages resting in that one moment of time. We have so much reason to rejoice.

Busy day today for so many of us. Still, I hope to get caught up with everyone tonight!


  1. I pray you have a blessed Easter. He has risen, indeed!

  2. Mornin' Vee!
    It's getting a bit scary but I made a He is risen sign last night too! I guess great minds run along the same track! You are my only visit this morning as we have big doins' goni' on 'round here! Every one is coming to our house this afternoon to ogle over gorgeous grandson as he does his first egg hunt! We will have a big family supper and bask in togetherness! I hope you have a happy Saturday!

    P.S. Here is a little ditty for you from me:

    I'm a nut, (clap, clap)I'm a nut,(clap, clap) I'm an acorn nut!
    Someone came and stepped on me, that is why I'm cracked you see, I'm a nut,(clap, clap) I'm a nut,(clap, clap) I'm an acorn nut!

  5. A lovely moon...and snowscape as well! (They somehow don't conjure up images of Easter in my mind though.)

    'He is Risen' for each of us...whatever the circumstances of our lives! We all have the same hope.

    Easter blessings to you!

  6. Beautiful moon photo! On Easter Sunday at church, we ring bells every time the pastor says "He is risen!" My favorite service all year!

  7. You-Have-Done-It!! You have captured the moon, in a simply beeeeutiful photo!!!

    You win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) Really, you do. This is just lovely. -happy sigh-


  8. And never one to let well enough alone... Have you saved this one, so you won't lose it? If so, what happens if you crop it a bit? Betcha' this would make an interesting and lovely photo too.

    I love to crop! Cropping is my friend. :-) Do you love to crop? If not, maybe try it. You may become addicted too.

    No I don't mean to crop too far, too fast. Just some... Look. Some more... Look. It will 'tell you' when it's a purrrfect crop. :-)

  10. I love your new Easter decoration! It's perfect! You are so right about those who watched our blessed Lord die on the cross ... makes our problems pale in comparison! He gave up His life for us ... awe inspiring!

  13. What a beautiful post; you have such a melodic writing style...and always leave us with something to think about. Nice moon shot; I couldn't even see it last night with the 'bright lights' of the little city. Such a shame. Have a wonderful Easter with your family.

  17. Great post vee - may you have a Happy Easter too.

    It won't be long now before that snow pile will be gone and you will see green grass.

    I took a picture of the moon this morning on my walk.
