There is something important that I need to shout out....
 No it's not that if there were a 'Blogger's Union, I'd be laying at the bottom of a Houston bayou with yard gnomes chained around my waist. Yes I deserve such treatment but rest  assured I have signed up for 'bloggers boot-camp' to get my priorities in check and win back your trust; back to the ole' dumbwit, worthy of your time and your very appreciated comments.

However the real announcement is the launching of this new online magazine -

this coming Monday, April the 25th

House of Fifty promises to bring it's own fresh face to the e-zine lineup. Janell Beals is HOF's founding editor whose has assembled a diverse team of contributors to bring you what Janell say's best, "inspiration in the everyday". If you have not signed up, I invite you to visit House of Fifty here to subscribe now and read the premier issue this coming Monday.

Janell would love to hear your feedback/suggestions regarding the premier issue @ info@houseoffifty.com. If you feel double the love, I'd be thrilled to hear your impressions too; that is if you are still talking to this anti-social in rehab for bad bloggers gal?

Sending you my best wishes and ...

 Hymn 457
1 Jesus Christ is ris'n today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss, Alleluia!

2 Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
Unto Christ, our heav'nly king, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save, Alleluia!

3 But the pains which He endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation have procured; Alleluia!
Now above the sky He’s king, Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing, Alleluia!

4 Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!
Praise eternal as His love; Alleluia!
Praise Him, all ye heav'nly host, Alleluia!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Alleluia!
{Go forth and live responsibly}
  celebrate with a song

It is so exciting when something new is brought to our attention and we are certain that the House of Fifty will be a huge success.

Your vintage Easter card is very attractive, whilst the inclusion of the hymn is a reminder of what this time is all about.

A very happy Easter to you.
