Day 100 or there abouts

My body aches
in fact it hurts
every joint
every bone
if I move
or when I rest
I can't find comfort
none at all
It was bad last week
but now it's worse
eight weeks reducing
from medication
it seems as if
I might have found
the point at which
My body's crying
but this will pass
I pray it will
and in the meantime
I find distraction
less in words
more in drawing
and acrylic painting
So that is what
I'll do when not
lieing down
when it gets too much
Here's just one
that I've created
something to
feel pleased about

Easter love biscuit #messychurch #craft #church #heisrisen

We made these easter love empty tombs at PPP messy church on Good Friday.  This one was made by a3 year old.  

I could have shared a more "perfect" one with the heart facing the right way and the mini egg just off to the sue as if rolled away.  But the child who made this brought it to me and said

"look Emma, this is the empty tomb. Jesus was in it but he came back to life and he is still alive.  The heart is the love he gives us all"

What more needs to be said, what an amazing expression of what Jesus dogs for us all.

Here are the simple instructions for making this yourself:

- take one rich tea biscuit
- cover in a thick layer of green coloured icing (made with water)
- place a jammie dodger at the back of the biscuit - this is the tomb
- place a mini egg in front of the jammie dodger - this is the tomb stone


blue skies
fluffy clouds
turn around
storms arise
April showers
down on Me
which emotion
will I be?
