Vernal Equinox and Holy Week

Spring officially sprung today, and I was struck by the irony of my view the past two mornings. We had a few inches of snow Friday night, and we woke up to a white world on Saturday. It got just warm enough on Saturday afternoon to melt most of the evidence. This first morning of spring dawned crisp and cool but snow-free with hues of gold, brown, and hints of green.

  
In other news, I am still pregnant and happily waiting for baby. In spite of my sore back and heavy belly I hope baby stays put for a few more weeks! The carpet for the freshly painted nursery is coming tomorrow, so hopefully I’ll have a (mostly) finished room to show you all soon. 

Wishing you and yours happy spring and a blessed Palm Sunday. As we enter Holy Week I hope you can take some time to ponder both the solemnity of the journey to the cross and the amazing joy that Easter brings.
