Now Where Did She Go?

With the Sunday sermon ready and the new administrative assistant hired and the bags and bags and boxes (almost) packed and the grounds freshly mowed and the new nursery up and running and the 'to-do' box properly filled (it's a continuing education trip so I am bringing resources to write sermons and books to read and other projects)and the transition made from fall/winter clothes to spring/summer clothes and resting assured that tomorrow morning will arrive and by golly we WILL sing 'Christ the Lord is Risen today' WITH trumpet accompaniment and with the requisite double-dose of allergy medicine and shot glasses of Robitussin taken in order to survive the Easter lillies it is time for me to go... for now...until I shall post again which will either be as early as Monday afternoon or as late as a week from then depending on internet access.

Congratulations Friends! You survived Holy Week! Now:

Go. Take. A. Nap!!!

I've always wondered how many other preachers suffered the effects of Easter lilies on Easter Sunday. It's awful! One year we had about two dozen surrounding the pulpit. I wasn't sure I was going to make it. This year we just had 3, tastefully arranged and much easier to tolerate.

Have a great week!

Fantastic pic!

I didn't have to write any sermons but can I take a nap anyway???

preacher mom -

My first Easter Sunday at this church the place was filled with not just lillies but daffodils, tulips and my own personal nemesis... hyacinths. They have toned down the greenhouse, but the place is still full of lillies and I sit and feel as my throat starts to close minute by minute.

Heyjules - ALL may nap.

who LIKES lilies anyway? I mean, yeah, tradition and blah blah blah but even for those of us not cursed with allergies they smell terrible and they're so, you know, leggy - it's not just my opinion, I know, that lots of flowers look nicer.
