Risen Indeed

There’s a small magazine table in the dining room that I like to change with the holidays.

The tiny crèche at Christmas on our black stenciled magazine table.

At Christmas it held a tiny crèche.

A tiny Limoges box which reminds me of the fishing boats by the Sea of Galilee.

This Easter the items on it remember scenes in the life of Jesus. The little Limoges box has a scene reminiscent of the fishing boats on the Sea of Galilee.

This small Irish bowl and pitcher are reminders of the humble service of Christ.

The bowl, pitcher, and towel remind us of the foot washing at the last supper where Christ gave his disciples a new commandment:  Love one another as I have loved you.

A small shrine.

The palms remember Jesus’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The eggs remind us of new life.

The empty cross signifies our resurrected Lord.

He is Risen indeed! Happy Easter.

Today would have been my mother’s 90th birthday — Easter Sunday.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
