Momentarily liturgically confused


I awakened to temps in the 20s, and to a bit of snow on the ground.

Still in my morning fog, while checking email, I had a vague feeling that we're living in some sort of special time of year ... it's not ordinary time ... no, it's something celebratory, right?

Christmas?

No, wait.

It's April.

Easter.

Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket. It's Easter. For about forty more days.

Bundle up and enjoy this lovely spring day, won't you?

Karen,

You gotta love this Global Warming eh?
I'm in Atlanta and it was in the low 40's the last 2 days. I'm thinkin' the 'Inconvenient Truth' is that global warming is a crock of...well you know.

~Peace and Happy Easter!

Oh man! Are you sure this isn't an April Fool's joke? Happy Easter, Karen!

We had HAIL yesterday. Hail! I was almost shocked at the weather, then I remembered how bad the rest of March had been. Sigh.

It RAINED all last night and today it's above zero! MAYBE SPRING IS COMING!

You got snow? We had very cold rain. I'm tired of cold wind. I'm tired of boys staying indoors.

Thanks for listening to my complaining about NE weather. God bless. (Remember I'm to the south of you several hours.)

We got a lot of snow yesterday. I see you started gardening in your blog, Sarah-- I am green with envy. My garden has been under snow since November. We really have not been outside yet. And it's April!

LOL! We had a sweet snow day last week, and while my reaction was similar(it really did seem more like Christmas!), I never really made a "Liturgical Year" connection. See how you just bless everything you touch? :)

I laughed at the global warming comment. I refuse to take a stand, not having looked at the research, but I do get impatient with folks who think they "remember" it being much colder and snowier when they were younger ("proof! Global Warming!!!")...forgetting that they were also much shorter, and probably didn't live in exactly the same place...and memory is a tricky thing. Every year here on Memorial Day, people talk about what a blessing it is that the sun is shining, because it "always rains on Memorial Day"...but I've been in this town for almost 10 years, and in all that time it's only drizzled once, and I have video proof! So I don't put much store in people's memories where something as significant as global warming is concerned.

How did I get here from your post?

LOL again!!!

Warmly,
Eileen

I'm boycotting the weather and making my blog SCREAM SUMMER.

Where I am it is 50 and rainy ... typical SPRING I guess.
