Good Friday

Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, 
yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.

 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; 
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.  
-Is. 53:54-5

What a humble king.  Thank you, Jesus, for making a way.  

On a side note, I met with my girls' group last night and I sat & bounced on an exercise ball for two hours while I held Lauren's baby, Will, in hopes of encouraging Henry to ease on down the road.  Nothing happened with Henry but it put Will right to sleep- maybe exercise balls are a good investment for soothing & putting babies to sleep (and developing core strength)!

ONLY IN ERIE- would I ever sit in the sunshine on a 55 degree day and consider it warm.  I sat in the backyard and read yesterday while Powers chased voles and Adam studied and I am sunburnt.  My lily skin couldn't handle it but, you know, you really don't think about getting burnt when the temperature is below 60...

It happens.  

The worst part was that I had rolled up my shirt and so I burnt HENRY!  Augh, I'm a terrible mother!  Not really, I didn't burn HIM I just pink-ened my giant stomach in the sun.   I didn't think about the fact that I smear cocoa butter on my stomach two times a day and that cocoa butter and sunshine is like Crisco and a hot skillet.  Oh well.

Happy Easter to you three as well! (Or, I guess I should say four and include Powers! What was I thinking?)

I read to Stan what you said about burning Henry, and we cracked up...thanks for the laugh :).
