BrightSquare Day 4


Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; the one who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

John 8:12

Today Christians Celebrate Easter

Virtual Vacation to Vegas #2

Like emerging from the dark into light, from death into life, during the season of Lent in which some Christians believe that they must give up something for six weeks prior to Easter. Easter morning, then is the day of celebrating that Christ rose from the dead. It is a time to feast and be happy. Jesus came out of the tomb to walk with believers for 50 days until he ascended back to heaven.

“The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer for Easter through prayer, mortifying the flesh, repentance of sins, almsgiving, simple living and self-denial.”

Wikipedia

In a more secular celebration, we hide Easter eggs in plain sight for the little ones rather than than in a tunnel. Those who find eggs in the tunnel, don’t stay in the tunnel, but bring them into the light to enjoy them.

If you haven’t heard of Becky’s Square Challenges, she runs them every three months. To join, follow the links. BrightSquare Day 4

“As usual for a Squares Challenge month I will be sharing squares daily, and I would love it if you did the same. However if daily sounds too daunting, don’t worry. It is fine to join us weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your squares. The frequency of your squares depends on you and also your blog. All I ask is that your image has 4 equal sides, and that it reflects the theme of bright.”

Enjoy #Sunday Stills, I am guest hosting again this week. Terri is doing well in her new home, but still without internet. The topic is volunteering – helping during a disaster, helping a friend, tutoring a child. The list is endless. Tell about your passion volunteering in pictures.

happy easter and have a great week.

    Beautiful post and photo. My SIL got married at the Valley of Fire. It is an incredible place. I want to go back and hike there. We had a small hike where the wedding took place, but we were in our “going to church” clothes. I want to really hike that place! 🙂

      There are so many places to go. We only scratched the surface. 🙂

        That is the way it was when we went to Death Valley. Barely scratched the surface over 2 days. 🙂

          Wow, did you see lots of birds. I tried photographing road runners yesterday. There were several gathered under a bush.

            We did not see many birds in Death Valley. It was more of a trip to see what Mother Earth has to offer. It was magical! Did you get the roadrunners? I’ve only ever seen one at a time. The last one I photographed was at Floyd Lamb Park just outside of Las Vegas. 🙂

            Yes, I did. And there is a road runner in front of the door. And that’s the best I could do! LOL

            LOL! They move so fast, it was a blur! Glad you didn’t delete it. Here is one of my best shots. This was at Floyd Lamb Park outside of Vegas. https://oureyesopen.blog/2019/08/21/august-21-botd-greater-roadrunner/
