Easter Thankfulness

This morning I had a bee in my bonnnet to straigten up the cupboard in my dinning room and found two random wooden eggs so I went a huntin to find the rest of the family. Felt a little like the woman in the parable of the lost coin. 3 bags to Goodwill later I found what I was looking for in a box labeled Easter decorations in the top of Elise's closet. My searching is pitiful compared to the way my Savior searched for me.
Reminds me of the Caedmon's Call song
Where I began
The grass looked greener on the other side
So I tried to, snatch myself from your hand
Caught a boat to anywhere but Nineveh
And, well you know, I got spit back on dry land.
Verse 1: Give me purity and give me contintment
But oh no, not yet.
Like a coin hiding in the corner
Trying not to be swept
And I was trying not to be swept.
Kicking against these goads
Sure did cut up my feet
And didn't your hands get bloody
As you washed them clean (you washed them!),
Chorus: Here I am again, back where I began
Try as I may I can't get away from you
And all of these roads lead me to roam,
Bring me back home.
Here I am again, back where I began.
Verse 2: So you have yourself your ninety nine (ninety nine),
Isn't that enough for you?
Still you followed me to the shadowed valley
Carried me on your shoulders too.
I've done the work of Sisyphus
Thinking that I could get over this hill
But the one thing I can't get over now...(is the)
Is the force of your will.

Robin you don't need a bee a your bonnet because you keep your stuff neat and tidy to begin with.

It really bothered her for a couple days, probably even sore today, but we don't believe anythings broken.
