Jesus Christ rose bodily from the grave to give eternal life to all those who believe.

Mark 16:4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away --for it was very large. 5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. 6 But he said to them, "Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. 7 "But go, tell His disciples--and Peter--that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you." 8 So they went out quickly and fled from the tomb, for they trembled and were amazed. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid. 9 Now when [He] rose early on the first [day] of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. 10 She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. 11 And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.

I'm so grateful Jesus died for our sins and rose again, his love cannot be expressed in any greater magnitude.

Thanks be to God for His many blessings, and for our salvation through Christ's suffering.

Good morning to all - off to church and a family gathering, see you all later.

"Up from the grave He arose...!" My favorite day to sing. Thanks be to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit for loving us so much!

Happy Easter, all.

Since there are now persons of the egg-hunting age in our family, we'll all gather at Mrs.L's mom's house for an in-door hunt and then a family dinner this evening.

Everyone please enjoy the blessings of your family and friends - they are gifts from Above.

Humor break:

THE Republican National Committee has turned to boxing promoter Don King to lend his voice to an online game poking fun at Sen. John Kerry, reports The Washington Times. Visitors to the RNC's Web site can play "Kerry vs. Kerry," a boxing match in which the presidential candidate fights himself.

"Ladies and gentlemen," King's voice-over booms. "Welcome to Kerry versus Kerry, the battle for the Democratic Party. In one corner, hailing from Massachusetts - 350 votes for higher taxes, votes to eliminate important intelligence funding - Sen. John Kerry.

In the other corner, also hailing from Massachusetts . . . Sen. John Kerry." (PageSix)

Sorry to ruin your Monday morning but we know it's coming.

NYDailyNews: .......networks and cable outlets are vying for the first interview with Bill Clinton, whose $12 million presidential memoir is due out this summer. Among the contenders, I hear, are CBS' "60 Minutes," NBC's "Today" show and ABC's "Good Morning America," and there's talk of Oprah Winfrey doing a prime-time special on ABC. "There's also interest in virtually every major country in the world, who all want prime-time interviews," Clinton attorney Robert Barnett told me. "I have yet to hear from other planets, but nothing would surprise me."

I'm considering a coma this summer.

Bill Clinton, whose $12 million presidential memoir is due out this summer.

Within the past week or so, I posted a snippet from one of the NY papers quoting Hillary as saying there's no way Blubba will complete the book in time. I guess we'll see. Maybe Dick Clarke will ghostwrite it for him, as x42's probably been too busy with Belinda and all.

.... "We've gone through tough times," said ... Jerry Bruckheimer, who's tight with the Pentagon after producing "Black Hawk Down" and "Top Gun." "But eventually we'll realize that we did the right thing by removing a brutal dictator. I know I'm in the minority, but I like Bush."

Bruckheimer certainly would have had to wear a helmet at the Beverly Hills party for Arianna Huffington's new book, "Fanatics and Fools: The Game Plan for Winning Back America." Among the left-leaning crowd were Bill Maher, Norman Lear, Albert Brooks and Larry David (who loves Huffington's manifesto "so much that I almost finished it").

Rob Reiner had to admit he disagreed with Sen. Ted Kennedy's crack that Iraq was Bush's Vietnam. "I think this is worse than Vietnam," he told us. "Because in Vietnam you could pull out. In Iraq, we're stuck in a situation we've created." Rush&Molloy

Since so many direct their computer questions to you, I have one today...When I open Free Republic it is opening to Latest Posts....it has always opened to the Home Page before...How do I get it to open to the Free Republic Home Page?

How is Carson? Any Easter photos to share?

Carson's doing great - thanks.

Hmmm...if you have FR set as your browser's homepage, you can go to File, and select Open New Window and then have Latest Posts or The Guild or whatever thread you wish open in its own window and simply toggle back and forth.

Or, I may not have understood the question correctly if you want me to take another shot at it.

(Currently there are ten open windows here.)

Yep, one boy, one girl, soon to be many nightmares!

Another Laney favorite, her new LSU Tiger, demonstrating her thrill with a LSU Tiger growl.

Island Living...

On a chain of beautiful islands in the middle of nowhere, the following
people are stranded:

Two Italian men and one Italian woman

Two French men and one French woman

Two German men and one German woman

Two Greek men and one Greek woman

Two English men and one English woman

Two Bulgarian men and one Bulgarian woman

Two Japanese men and one Japanese woman

Two Chinese men and one Chinese woman

Two Irish men and one Irish woman

Two American men and one American woman

One month later, on these absolutely stunning deserted islands in the
middle of nowhere, the following things have occurred:

One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman.

The two French men and the French woman are living happily together in a
menage a trois.

The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of alternating visits
with the German woman.

The two Greek men are sleeping with each other and the Greek woman is
cleaning and cooking for them.

The two English men are waiting for someone to introduce them to the
English woman.

The two Bulgarian men took one look at the Bulgarian woman and started
swimming to another island.

The two Japanese have faxed Tokyo and are awaiting instructions.

The two Chinese have opened a convenience store, restaurant, laundry,
and have gotten the woman pregnant in order to supply employees for
their store.

The two Irish men divided the island into north and south and set up a
distillery. They do not remember if sex is in the picture because it
gets somewhat foggy after a few liters of coconut whiskey. However, they
are satisfied because the English aren't having any fun.

The two American men are contemplating suicide, because the American
woman will not shut up and complains relentlessly about her body, the
true nature of feminism, what the sun is doing to her skin, how she can
do anything they can do, the necessity of fulfillment, the equal
division of household chores, how sand and palm trees make her look fat,
how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her nicer than
they do, how her relationship with her mother is the root of all her
problems and why didn't they bring a damn cell phone so she could call
911 and get them all rescued off this Godforsaken deserted island in the
middle of freaking nowhere so she can get her nails done and go
shopping.

Yep, Laney's a real cutie pie, she looks just like her mom. Mom's in for a real amusement ride with those two bunnies. When I talked to mom today I asked if she ever wondered why she never got a bunny for Easter. She had wondered and I told her it was because I had bunnies when I was a girl. Live bunny gifts seem to skip a generation and one day my great-granddaughter will wonder why she never got a live bunny as a pet. :-)

From Little Green Footballs:

In another interview the previous day, a wounded fighter told United Press International about the role of the foreigners: He was wounded helping them and had to be evacuated to a friend’s house in Baghdad.

Calling himself “Abu Freedom” or “Father of Freedom” — a wry joke pointed at the Americans — the 20-year old fighter was hit while trying to save two Syrians that had been fighting with his men, also in the Army of Mohammed. ...

When asked why he fought, Abu Freedom is clear.

“Because I hate the Americans and hate the invaders,” he says. “I don’t want to see Americans in charge of my country.”

In the other house on Monday, Ahmed is more eloquent on how the fighting can end and peace can come to Iraq.

“God willing Bush will fall down by the hands of Fallujah,” he says, combining military and political rhetoric. “If John Kerry wins the election and withdraws the Americans troops from Iraq, and maybe just leaves a few in bases, then we will not fight. But Bush we will always fight.”

LOL I can sum it up in three words: Strong Willed Child *sigh* Or, it could be that she really, really, really likes bunnies. :-)

I keep thinking about that Visa Checkcard commercial where the dad is trying to buy a bunny for his daughter and the authorization is taking forever and .... every where, bunnies!

Fear for 2 More as Daughter Dies in Iraq

The daughters joined the National Guard - in 2000, 2001 and 2002 - each for their own reasons. Future financial aid for education was a big one, as was a search for direction, their parents believe. ...

"I had no idea," Lori said, though she believes her daughters always knew active duty was a possibility. "It seemed like a great thing. We were at peace."

I get it. It was great as long as the benefits came with no sacrifice.

I'm sick of this. The media (and too many Americans) want a WAR on terror without any BATTLES.

It was great as long as the benefits came with no sacrifice.

That's exactly what Mr. M and I were saying as we read the story in this morning's paper about the family with three girls serving in Iraq, and one recently killed. Our fathers went off to WWII and were gone for years at a time with no phone cards, no email. Casualties were in the thousands, week in and week out. My grandfather went off to fight in WWI, where we lost some 50,000 men in a single four-week period in the summer of 1918.

This is - and always has been - the price of freedom, and the soldiers know it. Perhaps, in our modern volunteer military, they join up for job training and education benefits, but the bottom line always has been that a soldier may have to fight and die. We've become spoiled and soft, and all too willing for someone else to make the sacrifices. Another WWII memory of my mother's - ration stamps, no gasoline, no butter. Would we put up with that today? I wish I could say with confidence that the American people would be willing to make whatever sacrifice were necessary for the cause of freedom and justice, especially after the attacks of Sept 11, but it isn't likely.
