April 2010 
What a beautiful 'sunny SUNDAY', the LORD has given us !!! THIS 'IS' the day that the LORD hath made. :o). A 'sunny day' always reminds me of GOD'S precious SON - CHRIST JESUS, who 'arose from the DEAD', and is living forevermore, at the right hand of the Father.

The 'OLD Rugged Cross' (hymn)
On a hill far away stood an old  rugged CROSS, the emblem of suffering & shame. And I 'love' that old 'cross' where the dearest & best for a 'world of  "LOST  SINNERS" was SLAIN.
chorus -- So I'll CHERISH the old rugged CROSS, till my trophies at last I lay down; I will cling to the old rugged CROSS, and exchange it someday for a crown.
My husband Wayne, who can make anything out of anything, created this CROSS 4 the entrance to GOD'S Mountain, for the Easter season; a few days after the Resurrection, we turn the SIGN over to say, "HE is ALIVE 4 evermore"

Because of God's 'son' Jesus, there is a Faith Orchard. This Orchard sign is the entrance to a 'family homestead', named 'MYERS' Mountain', by our 3 children, when they were little. They named it after Walton's Mountain. Over the yrs., we as a family, came to truly see with our hearts the 'love of CHRIST' 4 each one of it is now, GOD'S Mountain !! As U enter the opening of the lane from the main rd., traveling up the steep hill, U suddenly see 4 acres of 'beautiful open land', with a house, an orchard & many blooming plants. It is our 'haven', from the world; quiet & peaceful. Our grown children have many fond memories of this place. But someday, we as a family will enter thru another entrance, into the gate of HEAVEN, which will be far more beautiful than this earthly piece of land !!!
We know we are going to that Heavenly place because of 'the CHRIST' shedding his blood on the CROSS 4 your sins & mine....Salvation by GRACE alone......we have chosen HIM & HIM alone to 'save'us for HEAVEN.

BECAUSE of Resurrection Sunday, CHRIST is ALIVE, GOD himself also chooses to give us 'new life' in the realm of  NATURE. Beauty is all around us.... II Corinth. 5:17 says we can have 'new life' also.....
Be thankful every day, that in PA we live with beautiful changes of 'seasons'  GOD is 'the GOD -ONE & ONLY', the creator of all that he paints for our eyes to behold....our spirits also behold the beauty, and bring GOD'S peace & joy into our hearts.
I am thankful also for the 'land of blogging', for each of us to be able to express ourself, and 4 the blessing of opening our hearts to each other. After a long winter, GOD has given us the 'joy of SPRING'...
 Possibly I will start writing more frequently, next time I will share photos of some 'new addtions' to Faith Orchard on GOD'S Mountain!!
Celebrate with JOY !!! 4 Life given to us......
a hymn --  "This is My FATHER'S WORLD"
And to my listening ears All nature sings, and round me rings 'the music' of the spheres. This is my Father's world !! I rest me in the thought of rocks & trees, of skies & seas. HIS HAND the wonders wrought.
