Easter Afternoon



My daughter

Isaac, my son, had to work Easter afternoon, and Keely and I went to town to take his car to him. Then we went to WalMart to look for some trim that Keely needs for a Renaissance Faire shirt she's sewing for a friend. I snapped this photo of her while we were trying out the lawn chairs in the garden shop.

Sun across the fields

As we drove back home, the sun was shining with a peculiar intensity across the verdant fields. ("Verdant" was the word suggested by Keely to describe the lush, fresh, growing greenness of the landscape, and I think she chose the perfect adjective.)

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
