Just got back from hospital , our energizer bunny is still running.  Found out that indeed FIL was on ventilator but it has been removed now as heis breathing on his own!  He is still not talking and I'm not sure that he recognizes us, but septicemia is is improving they also found kidney stone which at his age I don't think they would operate.  

Also today I had repairman out for dishwasher luckily it was inexpensive.  Maybe tomorrow will be a normal day.

No sewing again, but got lots done.   Cleaned, decluttered and reorganized tow storage rooms.  Sent a van load of stuff to the thrift store, got 2 boxes and a basket of stuff ready for my friend to look through. Sorted through my boxes of stampin up paper too.

Maybe tomorrow I can work on MQ8

today, I got walking in - went to Oklahoma Library Association pre-conference held in Ardmore, OK.  preconference I went to was a tour of the Chickasaw Cultural Center,  it tells the story of the Chickasaw Indian Nation and preserves their heritage and culture.  As librarians, we got a tour behind the scenes - preservation room, decomtamination area and where they are digitailizing all their holdings.  very inteesting and so informative!  

Cultural Center is just beautiful,  one room you get the experience of being in te forest and you hear the stories passed down from generations.  If you ever come to OK, make it a priority on your visit. 

anyways, we left at 8:00 this morning and got home about an hour ago so a long day but very worthwhile.  Best part, I got paid to go and for my mileage down there and back.  what a deal!

Sukochi, we DO keep Christ in the center of our celebrations, every one of them and He is the center of our daily life too.  Our church has easter egg hunts to reach out to the community and show them Christ's love.  That is what we are to do.  We hope that they will be drawn to that love and be saved.  WE NEVER FORGET WHY WE CELEBRATE! 

Christ wasn't found in churches, he was found in the streets w/the "bad" people.  That is because He loves everyone, not just the ones who celebrate "right." 

Done w/my rant.

Dawn, I am sorry for the way I worded that. I had no intention of questioning YOUR Faith. I was speaking as a whole. I understand that reaching out to the community, at large, is so necessary. I am sorry for the way I sounded. I really need to pray more and talk less.

I don't read each post but this one made me wonder what this was about. I found this site that I think might of interest, actually for anyone. http://homecooking.about.com/od/foodhistory/a/easteregghistry.htm

As for myself, I stopped going to church because I saw the political side of it. I was one who never missed church. That does not mean that I do not believe. I continue to reach out to help others as Christ would, but I just don't need a church to do it with. Maybe one day a good church will be found in my area.

Patti:

I know that many of our Christian holidays are celebrated by pagan customs, but I grew up with them and they have special meaning.   My daughter has formally converted to Judaism, and I was thinking the other day, that I would miss doing the Easter bunny and egg hunt with the someday grand kids.  Then I thought, hey the bunny is not about 'Resurrection Day,' it's about spring.  So we may have our own family spring festival, but not confuse it with Passover, nor Resurrection Day.

Patty, that sound like our family. We have a wide variety of religious paths in our family. Several varieties of Christian, Pagan, athiest, agnostic, and more. Since our family never misses an occasion to celebrate anything, we have seasonal celebrations: Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter plus all the traditional Holidays. Since our religious views vary so widely, we figure each can mark their respective religious holidays however they wish: going to church, personal ritual, community service, or however they wish. Then we come together as family to celebrate life!

Marie, that fussy cut patch really sets off your block. I love the effect!

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
