The weather today is still cold. I noticed that our side yard is full of branches and twigs from the River Birch...again. The wind was fierce yesterday. Coming home from Mass last night was especially hard. The wind could almost blow you over and there was snow in the air. People were bundled in their winter coats with scarves around their necks. I bought a new purple spring coat... made of boiled wool this year. I don't usually get much use out of a spring coat, because we tend to go right into summer weather here, but this year is different.
Our Church looked beautiful last night and on Monday we change the red Altar cloths back to violet. We have several days this week of changing the Altar...looking forward to Easter Sunday with all the beautiful flowers on the Altar. I'll be sure to take pictures of the whole procedure and the final outcome. Last year the delivery boy from the greenhouse had to bring in one truckload of flowers and go back to the store to get another load for our Sanctuary. He kept bringing them in two by two. Here we were with all these lilies, hydrangeas, tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils....trying to find a place for them all. We really need workers that day...I'm saying a little prayer that many show up. I know that pride isn't always a good thing, but when I sit there in our pew and look around me....I think that I am so proud to have helped make God's Church a little more beautiful.
