Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Natalie the Explorer. It’s a warm day, and Zen green tea is my wakeup beverage of choice. What’s yours?
Bixby was really anxious for a walk this morning. I had let him out back earlier,but he kept following me around. It was a little after ten when we went (I had slept late), and it must be in the eighties here in Northeast Florida already, because I worked up a sweat!
Bixby was sure happy though, and who could blame him. The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and the smells of Spring are freely available to all who wander out.
It’s Easter weekend in my faith tradition. I dislike the Easter bunny and candy rituals. The Easter story is a spiritual tradition. I went to church on Palm Sunday but stayed home and watched the Maundy Thursday service. I’ll be going to church with my mother tomorrow and my boyfriend. Hopefully, my son will go as well.
In whatever faith tradition you practice, I wish you a blessed weekend. I think I’m a fairly secular person in my writing, but I’d like to think I convey a sense of spirituality. Ramadan and Passover are also going on in April. I have many students participating in Ramadan. It’s wonderful when we can all love and respect one another’s differences.
My search for a Bible verse of the day yielded the following, which I will share in a screenshot:
It is truly a verse that means and says a lot. It brings to mind the Russian war against Ukraine. If only things were different. I pray for them. In daily life, I work to treat others like I’d want to be treated but then pause to find a balance with personal boundaries. Hopefully, this all gets better with age. 🙂
I am so longing to travel but am in a phase of finishing out the school year, while planning some summer travel. Today, I’m on the home front, helping tidy up the house for tomorrow. There is a time for everything, yes?
Have a great weekend, whatever that entails for you and yours!

Thank you, Pam, for your weekend coffee share. Bixby knew how to enjoy spring with you.
Thank you for stopping by, Natalie!
Hi Pam, so well said – all of it above.
I have a good friend who used to work for me (I was her manager).
She’s Russian and I caught myself today wondering if she’s okay, living here in the US now for many years but still has a very thick Russian accent – so I worry that some might take out their frustration with yet another needless war on her because she really is obviously Russian. There are only a few people who made this war happen, even if you factor in any kind of Ukrainian provocation.
I think we need some meaningful way to declare war on just a few people rather than them and all their neighbors and peer citizens.
It’s sad that our Easter is tainted with such evil being dropped on so many innocent people.
Thanks for a great coffee share visit.
So true, Gary. Take care, my friend.
My hubby has a co-worker who is russian and my daughter has a friend who is as well. THey both have friends and family in both ukraine and russia and this has been so hard for them. Hope you had a great weekend.
You as well, Kirstin! I am praying about the Ukraine situation. It’s all I can do.
