Ronee' Le-Anne Reaux writes in her journal about the upcoming church Cantata and Easter celebration, among other things.

Weds., March 19, 2008, 10:10 a.m., D.S.T., Nashville, Tennessee~

Dear Journal~

Hey!  Ronee' Le-Anne here! Hope this finds  y'all well! I am doing pretty good (hurting like sixty today; rains comin' through; it always gets me pretty well stoved up), can't go outside, so I'm stuck in my room, tryin' to scare up somethin' to do.

I hate these rainy days, especially when  there's no school! GRRR!!!!

Tomorrow is our dress rehearsal for our Easter Cantata at church.  I don't have any speaking parts in the play, but I do get to sing a solo, and I am gettin' a bit nervous.  Don't know why, but I am.  I will be singing "The Old Rugged Cross", which is perfect for this time of year. 

Then Friday, Saturday, and Sunday we do our thing.  Hopefully all will go well without incident, and hopefully there'll be a good turnout at church.  There usually is on Easter (or at Christmas, the two big church holidays).

After the Cantata, we will go out to eat at the Golden Corral; then we will have an Easter egg hunt.  I won't participate (too old for that sorta' thing, though it was fun when I used to do it!!), but I will be taking pictures of my littler brothers or sisters scrambling to find the colored eggs.  We may go to Centennial Park later or maybe catch a movie; don't know what we'll do yet.  We just plan to relax and count our many blessings.

I can't believe that in a few months it will soon be summer.  Spring starts in just two days, and already everything's greening up, and coming to life. Trees are getting their leaves, flowers bursting out, everything is getting to be colorful.  The animals are more active, and it isn't uncommon to see bunnies or squirrels frolicking about in spring love mode.  The birds are singing, and everything's coming alive again.

Maybe later I can cadge maman to take me to the mall; got some Easter cash from my uncle in Memphis (he always sends me a little money every year), and it's burnin' a hole in my pocket.  Would like to get some books at the Half Price Bookstore--or maybe some new earrings or art supplies.

Or maybe even a DVD or two. :)

Life here is great: nobody sick, everyone getting along.  Just the babies being babies: crying to be fed, changed, or 'cause they're bored.  Seems they do most of their crying at night, right when I'm trying to fall asleep, and it really bugs me.

I do love my little brothers, though; I wouldn't trade them for the world! Isaiah and Ian are adorable!!

Well, I am going to get some of my books together, have to go to the library tomorrow; they're due Saturday; don't want to have any fines!  I will also try to figure out what I want to eat, and see if I can talk maman into taking me to the mall; that Easter money in my pocket is really talkin'!

I will write again soon, let y'all know how the Cantata went!! Until then, have a very happy, blessed Easter, and as y'all enjoy your eggs, candy, and Easter goodies, don't forget why we really celebrate Easter: the Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!!

God bless!

~Luv, your gal pal, Ronee' Le-Anne. :D

I hope Ronee' can learn to love rainy days. They can be refreshing and remind us of their purpose. What would we do without our green vegetables, our green grass at home and in the parks, the waterfalls in the hills and mountains, our lakes, and so on? We wouldn't live so long! Tell Ronee' to embrace the rains and keep busy with puzzles, chores, naps, cooking up some goodie. Smiles

Beautiful write of Spring, of hope, of the REAL reason for the Season: He's alive! He's alive! He's alive and I'm forgiven, Heaven's gates are open wide! :)
