debris4spike: (Christ is Risen)


Just got back from evening communion at Church, and this was our final hymn. A lovely reminder that today is Easter Sunday ... Jesus Christ is risen from the dead, Hallelujah. It was also one of the hymns that my drothers had at their baptism back in 1984 ... so another reminder for me!

And, this final hymn was the last hymn of our morning service ... people often ask how I have coped with these last 5 years, well, there is your answer.



Happy Easter

Today is Good Friday - the day that we remember that God's Son Jesus was crucified, with two criminals, outside Jerusalem's walls. The pure Son of God died and was buried in a borrowed tomb.

Exeter, like many towns & cities, had a walk of witness this morning, although I didn't go. Exeter has a big event in front of the Cathedral including a play to show those events of the trial and Crucifixion. As a personal choice I do not like to see Jesus being portrayed by anyone. It is great that it's so many people forget what Easter is about. The weather was good, so hopefully a lot of people learnt a bit about The Bible this morning.

And, yes, I have just had 2 hot cross buns with my tea!

Happy Easter

As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. 6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him." (Mark 16 : 5-6)

“We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him.” (Romans 6:9)

Hoping that you all have a lovely Easter Day, and manage to get some sunshine (we have had some here).  My great grandmother always said that you would see some sunshine on Easter Day, and yet again she is right (she died in 1930, aged 78)

Hoping that you will all stop for a moment and remember the real meaning of Good Friday.

John 19: 16 - 19 (NIV)
So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. 17 Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). 18 There they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle. 19 Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: Jesus of Nazareth, the king of the Jews.

This is a version of a hymn that we all know, many sang it at Sunday School .... There is a Green Hill, but it is sung to the tune of House of the Rising Sun

Maundy Thursday

The Queen has marked Maundy Thursday with a moving ceremony, reducing members of the congregation to tears as she handed out commemorative coins.

The monarch beamed as she undertook the tradition of giving red and white purses containing Maundy money to pensioners, who were chosen in recognition of their service to the community and the Church.

The Queen was joined by the Duke of Edinburgh for the Royal Maundy service, which was held in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle for the first time since 1959.

She wore a turquoise wool crepe dress and turquoise tweed coat by Karl Ludwig and a matching hat with a lace trim by Angela Kelly.

The service broke from tradition to mark the Queen's upcoming 90th birthday.

Some 90 men and 90 women received Maundy Money - each coin representing one of the monarch's years - and were selected from across the country, not the local diocese as is usual.

The Queen handed two purses - one white and one red - to each person during a procession of the Chapel, while the choir sang.

Recipients and their guests could be seen wiping away tears after spending a brief moment with the monarch.

The red purse contained a £5 coin commemorating the Queen's 90th birthday and a 50p coin marking the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, while the white purse contained uniquely minted Maundy coins, equating in pence to her age.

Among the 180 recipients was Tim O'Donovan, 84, who has authored the annual survey of Royal Family engagements published in The Times since 1979.

Mr O'Donovan, who is also a retired lay steward for St George's Chapel, said he began keeping the record "out of curiosity" after thinking "perhaps one should know what the Royal Family are doing".

He said it was a "privilege" and "marvellous" to be part of the service, instead of watching on.

The bells of the Chapel rang out as the Queen's procession, which included the Dean of Windsor, the Right Reverend David David Conner and the Lord High Almoner, the Right Reverend John Inge, left the service.

Excited well-wishers cheered as the group posed on the steps of the Chapel for photos.

The Royal Maundy is an ancient ceremony which originated in the commandment Christ gave after washing the feet of his disciples the day before Good Friday.

It appears to have been custom for members of the Royal Family to take part in the service since the 13th century, the Royal Mint said.

The Queen marked Maundy Thursday by distributing commemorative coins to 90 men and 90 women - each representing one of her 90 years. The 180 recipients of the Maundy money are retired pensioners who were recommended in recognition of their service to the Church and community

I spent the "spare" time gardening with Dad. We have been working on cutting back the hedge that wasn't touched last year. Sadly the ivy has attacked again ... so quite a bit of dead stuff to remove ... Jiffy is happy as it means he can keep tabs on the neighbourhood cat easier 🙌

I have been getting bad at keeping up to date ... I am sorry. I have loads of photos to post .... will try and get them up tomorrow as it's my evening in Exeter.


As I haven't had much chance time to make icon sets I have decided to sign up for [livejournal.com profile] historamedy365 .... and do two sets of 100 in the year. So later today I shall be posting my link charts on my icon journal. I am doing BtVS and Blakes 7 .... so the two series I have loved for ages.

It was lovely to attend Easter morning Communion with Dad ... such a special day to celebrate a special memorial service. Both Mum and Dad enjoyed their meal .... I even made a simple pudding. So a nice day.

Mum is not doing too well ... she can't sleep but doesn't want "more" pills ... I am trying to persuade her to at least speak to her doctor.

I am doing a lot better ... still in pain from the mid back down. But my arms and shoulders are much easier. I find my breathing easier and stamina much, much better. I very rarely get the sudden overwhelming tiredness, so that has been a wonderful improvement. The cranial treatment is slowing working.

Well I must get on ... I will try to catch up with comments later. Miss you.

As you all know my faith is utmost in my life ... today it's Good Friday, the day that Jesus, God's son, died on a cross for all the sins of this world ever.

I praise God in that ... but more especially in that He rose again. I praise God that He did this for the world ... He did it for me.

Thank you God.

This hymn is one of my favourites ....



Praise God that He sent His Son to the world ... to die for us. Take a moment this Good Friday to pray and give thanks.

Hallelujah

Happy Easter - Christ the Lord is risen today - Hallelujah.



We had this hymn to start our second service - maybe not as many people, maybe not as in tune ... but sung with love and truth on this special "first" Sunday.

Happy Easter to all my friends - take a moment to reflect on the real meaning of this season.

Hallelujah
