Aw...Mondays and More


Rebekah and Avery took a Easter SONday photo with me. We had such a wonderful day. I will blog about our meal each day this week. Zach made a Prime rib, Rebekah baked a Honey Ham. We had a wonderful time and Jeremy and Brittany and kids joined us. They brought yummy green bean casserole. We felt so blessed. The eggs hunted for eggs and each one received a Golden Egg. It was fun for everyone . We are always so grateful to celebrate the Resurrection SONday.  We made similar meals like those we shared with our own parents over the years. Missing two of our kids, Noelle (Roger) and Hannah (Jake). Grateful we can hopefully be all together for Mother's Day.

I am very grateful for Simone. She and her hubby Pastor Jeff are in Oregon these days. She shared this for Easter and I am very blessed to have her in my life. She was a longtime blogger and married Jeff and began their journey pastoring together several years ago. I feel like God gave me these precious gifts for a specifiic reason so I want to share them with you too. 

As a small child I learned early the significance of Easter and the season that surrounds it. While enjoying egg hunts and chocolate bunnies I was taught at a very young age  what it all means and I spent some quality time on Good Friday going over memories, reading Scripture and remembering all I was taught at such a young age. I am always and forever grateful for my upbringing and I am so happy to know the handful of godly women who keep me upright. 

I feel the time is drawing near for the return of Jesus and I do not want to be left behind. If you ever had the opportunity to watch the series Left Behind or read the books by Tim Lahaye it laid out the road map to what we will see coming. I often am shocked at Christians who post things at social media that are so unbecoming to their faith. We are not to worry or trouble ourselves about things of this world. It is what it is and fighting over all of it will not help anyone.

A peek at the prime rib Zach prepared at the wee hours before dawn. Grateful for this. He is willing to grill lamb chops next. I sure love having these crafty cooks in my home.

A phamily photo of the Robinson bunch on Easter SONday 2021. Addy is getting to be so grown up and the boys, they are something to keep you young at heart, mind and sometime even your body. We enjoyed our day immensely. My father would often say this is what phamily is.  Not wealth, or things, or opinions or advice. Just loving those closest to you. I miss my folks and my honey misses his on this Resurrection SONday. 

My mother-in-law Rita was a beautiful young lady. I love this photo of her holding a lamb. She was a farm girl and she was a beautiful heart.

A colorful Love is...reminding us sometime it is ok to put all your eggs in one basket. My father always said, don't put all your eggs in one basket but I did right by trusting my love for the past nearly 36 years.

Although Annie has been on hiatus, this quote by a favorite player in the MLB my father talked about to me. I love this so very much,

Saddened to see the MLB and the PGA jump into the political nonsense. No ryhme, no reason, just sheer pure hatred. So sad. . No matter your views, your thoughts, your opinions, HATRED is HATRED when only one side matters. Tragic. I am grateful my father is not here to witness the absolute destruction of this country and the world as he would have known it. Jesus, we are waiting on you. Please hurry.

Hoping you had a blessed and very beautiful day. The weather was gracious and as I walked across my yard to check outside lights tonight it feels like rain may be in the forecast. 

Sleep well, dream beautifully and praying we meet again.

Glad you Easter was so nice. The prime rib looks fabulous. Sadly, the world has changed drastically and is no longer a nice welcoming place. Hopefully some sense will come back, but who knows.

You had a most wonderful Easter with your family. I'm so happy for you. The food too. Yummy. You were raised as I was where religion was concerned. It's too bad my father didn't go along with that.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Love and hugs. ♥

Oooooh, don't get me started on the latest 'woke' business. When I heard about the MLB I thought about you and your love of the game. I hope you're right about Jesus coming back soon.

Yours is such a beautiful family! I'm curious -- what does that sign say in the window above your head? And who's that looking out the door? Makes me GRIN!

It sounds like a totally lovely Easter day and the meal sounds yummy!

I do really try to stay away from politics when posting. It always annoys someone. And is so divisive now. Looks like you had such a lovely weekend!
