JESUS HIS LIFE, AS TOLD BY THE PEOPLE THAT KNEW HIM BEST airs Monday, April 15, 2019 on HISTORY. See the trailer now.

Going to church on Sunday is a given in my house. We go to church on weekday Holy days, days my parents were helping out with events, my mother was the first Flower Guild, and well, we spent a lot of time at church. That builds for a strong foundation in faith and family.

My sister and I visited my Grandparents pretty often in our young childhood.
And, Yes, we went to Church every Sunday. Dressed in our darling dresses, patent leather shoes, a dime in our purse wrapped in a linen hankie. 

There were a few times my Grandmother did not go to church with my Grandfather, my sister, and I. 
I always thought, wow that's so odd she's not going up to church.

She was busy in her kitchen cooking and preparing a home grown and home cooked meal for my parents and the family when they came to pick us up later that day. But, my Grandmother did not miss church on a few given Sundays, nope, she listened, watched, prayed, and sang along with the service on television. She said Amen out loud, Thanked Jesus and prayed. I know this because she was had the church service on long before we walked out the door to go to church. 

She read the Bible to us every night at bedtime when we spent the night at their house. I loved when she read the psalms. The sheep and his pasture, cool waters, all sound so soothing, peaceful, and restful.  (Psalm 23:1-3) 
I really like the song "It is well with my soul". It's a good way to keep your soul at peace.

This Easter Season if you are or aren't a formal church goer or like to watch along on the television, HISTORY has a four part series that begins Monday, March 25, 2019 at 8 PM ET/PT.

synopsis:
“Jesus: His Life” explores the story of Jesus Christ through a unique lens: the people in his life who were closest to him. Each of the eight chapters is told from the perspective of different biblical figures, all of whom played a pivotal role in Jesus’ life including Joseph, John the Baptist, Mary Mother of Jesus, Caiaphas, Judas Iscariot, Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene and Peter.

Each figure takes a turn guiding viewers through the emotional and epic story of the most famous man in history, through his birth, death and resurrection, all conveyed through a combination of scripted drama and interviews with prominent religious and historical experts. Utilizing some of the world’s most respected Biblical scholars, historians, faith leaders and theologians, the series weaves together the canonical Gospels, historical sources and cultural context to create a complete portrait of Jesus – the man and the Messiah.  The series finale airs this Monday, April 15 on The History Channel at 8pm ET/PT.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products.

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
