FAREWELL DON KNOTTS
EARLY ECLECTIC ENTRY FOR E
E is also for Easter eggs that we keep for fun to play hide and seek. I have good memories of Easter growing up when we dyed eggs and hid them in the lawn. These eggs are plastic, but they last a lot longer and they don't smell so bad when we miss finding them a few weeks after hiding:D
E is for Einstein coat that will be a rare article for me. I'm not sure when I'll be able to work on it as I have a lot of things I'd like to accomplish, but at least it's on the needles. I am eager to get it finished!
E is for Emmanuel which means "God with us". I love this name and the song by Amy Grant.
E is for Elenor Rigby by the Beatles. Another song I like in particular.
E is for ecumenism. The Catholic church emphasizes this concept.
E is above all for the enegma of the Eucharist; the body, blood, soul and divinity of Christ our Lord. We celebrate at every Mass our union with Christ.
E is also for evening prayers which are also known as vespers.
I hope you enjoy my eclectic mix of E entries:D

OLYMPIC KNITTING UPDATE
*I have been honored to become one of the moderators for Cloths For Crisis:D * I would encourage everyone to weave, crochet or knit a cotton cloth and send to a local shelter; or stockpile them and when the next disaster strikes (and sadly it will) there will be just that many more people who will know someone cared enough to put love into every stitch for them. Join the group and find lots of cool cloth patterns! It's fun, it's easy and it's needed! You won't be sorry!
Now back to *acheeeew!*~snif~, to the Olympics;~)

D IS FOR...
The Douay-Rheims Bible is the version Mother Angelica uses on EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network) which is celebrating 25 years on air.
D is also for decalogue better known as the Ten Commandments:
1. I am the LORD your God; you shall not have strange Gods before me.
2. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
3. Remember to keep holy the LORD's Day.
4. Honor your father and your mother.
5. You shall not kill.
6. You shall not commit adultery.
7. You shall not steal.
8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.
10. You shall not covet your neighbor's goods.
D is also for devotion. I have made a definite decision to pray the rosary every day, a series of prayers that entail saying Hail Mary's in groups of decades. I have a devotion to Our Lady and the Holy family. I desire to delight in the LORD and to do good works.
D is also sadly for delay in posting. Michael has been and is still sick with a bad cold:-(
Doris Day is also a favorite actress, and I don't feel like a dork for saying so!:~p
Hey! D is also for duct tape! The north side WalMart SuperCenter is reported to sell the most duct tape in the nation. WooHoo for duct tape the fix it fast tool for those like Red Green and company. It's in a variety of colors now. I saw somewhere where a creative gal made her dress and her date's suit from duct tape. Now that's a handy gal!
D is also for dominos. My brother and I spent hours setting them up and knocking them down.
And last but not least D is for delicious dessert of DingDongs. :~D

CATHOLIC BLOG AWARDS
A PRAYER IN TIME OF DESPERATION
I am desperate for your love, Lord. My heart is aflame with fervent passion. When I remember the good things you have done, my heart burns with desire to embrace you. I thirst for you; I hunger for you; I long for you; I sigh for you; I am jealous of your love. What shall I say to you? What can I do for you? Where shall I seek you? I am sick for your love. The joy of my heart turns to dust. My happy laughter is reduced to ashes. I want you. I hope for you. My soul is like a widow, bereft of you. Turn to me, and see my tears. Come now, Lord, and I will be comforted. Show me your face, and I will be saved. Enter my room, and I shall be satisfied. Reveal your beauty, and my joy will be complete.
St. Anslem of Canterbury, d. 1109
