Put on Your Easter Bonnet.

.....With all the frills upon it,in the Easter parade.....Memories so sweet.

We wouldn't think about going to Easter church service's in the 50s and early 60s without our bonnets on.  Whether You were 5 or 85, churches were filled  with  Easter Bonnets on that one day out of the Year. In the 80s one Year on Easter morning I wore a plain straw white hat and I think I was one of a very small few,that was the last time I wore an "Easter Bonnet".Such fond memories I have of wearing Our bonnets to Church.... My Sisters, Aunts,Mother, both Grandmothers and even one of My Great Grandmas.Strutting around on the Church's lawn before and after service taking photos. That was one fun outcome of  the whole family going to the same church.I loved it as a young girl.

 Here's a couple fun easy ones for the little ones today....

I esp. love the first one : )                                                        Now this Grandma

is off to work around the house, keeping My mind busy on making new Memories. Blessing to all of You- Happy Easter-Denise

I not only remember Easter Bonnets - I bought one for myself for Easter this year. Easter was our official start of Spring - new coat, new dress, new shoes and an Easter Bonnet!

I used to get a new spring hat and a new spring coat every year. Happy times. My girlhood was special, but my grown-up girlhood is even more so! A most blessed and abundant day to you, dear Denise. And a blessed and abundant Resurrection Day ---- He is risen!

So bee-u-te--ful, we love to see Easter Bonnets, but I usually just wear by pretty bow, I have many different colors, right now I am wearing a pale blue one.

Happy Easter.

Heaps of Hugs

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
