    1. We sang that song in church on Sunday and that one phrase really jumped out at me. I've been humming it all week. Loved the photo...so glad I found it! I thought it was perfect, too! It had to be beautiful but not cheery. The droopy daffodils still looked cheery to me. ha.

    With a feeling that is poopy
    As in not feeling so hot
    In its plot

    1. Oh, I had not heard that yet
      but I wouldn't doubt it one bit.
      They don't want Christ in Christmas, you know,
      So why should it be left in Easter? So it goes!
      Can't offend the non-Christians
      so Spring Day is better by a zillion.
      Good grief. lol....
      Whoever thought of that
      should get run over like your Easter Bunny that went splat.
      hahaha.

      Or make sure he/she is in a cloud of smog
      Glory Dear may have a fit

    3. Yes, she was quite upset
      seeing him smooshed flat.
      A very realistic shot, too
      and you should use it again, it's true.
      Most readers are newer than that
      and that would knock them flat.
      haha.
