Thanks everyone for the comments on my last post, I really appreciate the encouragement.
I have been looking forward to this Easter weekend. To be honest, I was mostly thinking of the time off school and the two Bank Holidays of Good Friday and Easter Monday. The relief of time off work is great! I know, I know... that's not what Easter is about. I was surprised when I read in the Metro newspaper the other day that a large percentage of young people in the UK do not know the reason why Easter is celebrated. An even further lower percentage in the survey said they would be attending church on Easter Sunday. I'm saddened - and this is supposed to be a Christian country! Anyway sha, that got me thinking about why I celebrate Easter too. I have felt my spiritual life stagnating a bit in the last few months. So my prayer this Easter is that I would rediscover Christ in my life in a new way. Whilst trying to avoid eating too many chocolate eggs and bunnies. LOL.
Didn't have anything planned for today, so I was just been chilling at home, browsing blogs and stuff. Until hubby decided to arrange the storage cupborad. Since we moved, I dumped some boxes of stuff there that I never got round to sorting out. As he was sorting out our stuff, he brought out a bag containing all my old photos. I have just been rooting through the photos in there- ranging from secondary school days, to college and university days. There are photos of my friends that I still talk to, photos of people I've lost touch with, photos of people I would consign to the dustbin of history, photos of my 18th, 19th and 21st birthday parties, graduation photos, embarassing school uniform photos, photos from those fun times, phots of past fashions .... etc. All the memories! I showed hubby a photo of myself when I was 17 and he said I looked about 12, how rude! I'm laughing at my old photos right now. I need to archive them to show the kids, lol.
The weather is supposed to be lovely this weekend, so I'm looking forward to it. Here's wishing you all a lovely Easter as we celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ!
