Resurrection Sunday II

Beautiful Resurrection Sunday music at the New Horizon Worship Center.

It has been a Blessed day.

Resurrection Sunday

Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week,
he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat,
and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart,
because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,
and preach the gospel to every creature.
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them,
he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 

He is Risen(Matthew 28:6)

Baby Duck is still at the Bridge

On my walk to the Bridge, there are pretty purple flowering bushes,

 Look who is snoozing in the morning sunshine.
 Oh My, I didn't mean to wake you up.
Life is beautiful.
Blessings, Janet

No ducks at the Bridge this morning

 No ducks at the bridge this morning so I decided to tour the north side of community. 
 Yep, she didn't disappoint. Beautiful community and lovely duck.
She is sitting in the shade. Yesterday was 91 degrees. A bit hotter too much earlier than usual.
It will be 40s by Wednesday night.
Big difference between making someone feel worthless or making they feel priceless.

Palm Sunday

The JOY Singers sang this morning.
We celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem the week before his death and resurrection.  Passion Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week and concludes Easter Sunday. 
The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him by waving palm branches and covering his path with palm branches and articles of their best clothing. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross.

John 12:12-19 Foreshadowing of 2nd coming.

Baby Duck grows

Baby Duck has grown in just a week. Mom is with him.
 Mom took off for the water and Baby followed as fast as he could paddle to follow.
On the other side was food. . . . people were on the bridge dropping food into the water. That's why the fast getaway.

Never let the things you WANT make you forget the things you HAVE.

Turtles Rule

Back to walking today. Only walked a mile and a half.
At the Bridge there were only Turtles this afternoon. 
The ducks were on the other side, across the street, 
and the egrets were being fed down the north side of the canal.
Beautiful day. . . . cloudy with some sun.

Back from the Women's Religious Retreat

Five ladies from New Horizon Worship Center participated in the Women's Retreat in Orlando. Pastor Mathai drove us all up and attended parts of the retreat. . . Leaving a Legacy "Connecting the Generations!" Our leader Jeanne Rogers was fantastic.

Conchitta Johnson, Yvonne Brown and Cyslin Gruher
Beautified for the Dinner

 Worship team: Vessels of Worship from Miami
At the dinner: Conchitta, Janet, Cyslin, Yvonne and Pastor Jean. Pastor Mathai took the picture.

Baskets came from all of the churches represented. I bid on a Starbucks basket and won. The monies went to the Cambodia Kids 2013 which is our National Project.

Our special speaker of the evening and the next day was rev. Diana Adour. She was fantastic. She is a co-pastor with her husband Tim at the Church of Revelation in the Bronx.
Crowning Glory - Psalm 103:4 We all received sparkling tiaras (crowns) for the Lord.

The over 40 group stood up, there were many of us.  The under 40 group gathered around the stage. We  spoke words to each other regarding vital aspects to connecting with each other. One of the gals and I bonded (we will continue to stay in contact. . .I consider her a daughter in Christ).  So many people are hurting and reaching out and we must be ready/prepared to be the light that helps guide them to the Lord.

God Bless,

Both parents decided to hang around.  Baby duck was up on the bank and decided to come down for a drink.

Mom, Egret and baby

 Where is dad?  Up on the fence post cleaning and preening.

Have a Great day.

Baby duck and family

This morning as I was walking, the clouds began to build.
Can you tell there is a cool front that will be moving in later this evening? 
 Baby duck doesn't get too far from mom.
 Hasn't he grown?
 The whole family was there together this morning.

Have a great day.

Turkey Buzzards(?) Hawks(?) at Diving-Playing in the Wind

This was quite a treat for me. I had noticed when I turned the corner all these huge birds practicing (or playing) in the wind their free fall, their flying around and at each other. 
At the end of the street in the Club House yard, there they all were. . . Turkey Buzzards, Hawks?? Do not know the tribe, but there they are in a huddle . . . Who will go first?

 And look, here they are lined up, ready to go. . ..
 Wait, it's my turn!!  Nope you lost your turn. . . .
 It was a bit difficult to catch them in flight, but as you can see, they are enjoying their day of playing in the wind.
I have never seen anything like this. I didn't know birds play. . other than swimming,  eating and sunning/napping at the Bridge/Canal.

What a beautiful surprise on a wonderful Sunday afternoon. I love finding different things on all my daily walks. It is truly a blessing.

Life doesn’t get easier, you just get stronger.

Baby Duck napping, Turtles playing

Turtles are playing, there are 3 of them, but the other one swam out of the picture.

 Baby duck is napping with his little beak in his back.

Baby duck in relation to water and surroundings.
Baby duck as moved to just under the bush on the right bottom of the picture.
 The rest of the crowd is wandering around above the water and baby.

 Daily watching the birds and turtles is so much fun. Our little duck is beginning to grow. I haven't seen the little black duck again.


No matter how well you invest it, you will never have any more TIME.

Baby duck playing

There's baby duck, it's warmed up somewhat from 45 degrees this morning.

 There is an adult duck siting in the sand sunning. Here comes baby duck!
Mama is trying her best to get the baby to take a bath.
Baby duck . . . "What are you kidding, that water is cold!"

 Mama gives up and sees that baby is not going to bathe this morning.

Whoops. . . .Baby is leaving. . . .duck sunning looks at mom & dad like
You know mom and dad will follow as they have been doing to protect their young'un.
I can see mom teaching, but don't see any correcting yet. . . .

It is fun to see who's in charge, what they do, how they do it. . . learning experience for me as well as baby duck.  There are always lots of egrets and blackbirds around.  This family is fun to watch.

Bird and Flowering Bush

This bird does not look exactly like a duck, but I have no idea what it is. He was cleaning in the sunshine, that's why he is in an odd position.
He almost looks like a 'snake' bird. . . .

 Living in the south, especially in 'winter' has great rewards.
The flowering bush adds variety and beauty to my walk.

Duck Family

Saturday I didn't walk until it was 61 degrees (up from 51).  Today I didn't walk until it was 51 degrees (up from 39).  It's all relative. ;-)
