A Very Blessed Easter to you all .
As on other years ,I joined up with many others from our town to go on the silent walk of witness,Which is a tradition here in Ramsey ,and after the walk from a point the opposite end of town to the Church,a service is usually held on the green beside the church But due to the bitterly cold this morning, the service was held in church,which was packed I am so pleased us tough Fen landers weren't put by the bitterly cold winds that blow straight from Siberia!
See me here on my buggy,The remains of the Abby gate behind me, with my flowers to put onto the cross,in the bag at my back I have my quilt which I had planned to wrap up in if the service was on the green. Ready aye ready ,that's me !
As other years the order of service tells the Easter story,there is a Cross at the top of the main aisle ,and people put the jug of myrrh and wine (that Jesus refused )the crown of thorns ,the purple robes ,that Jesus was taunted with ,The hammer and whip and spear,were then placed near the cross along with the wine mixed with vinegar .We sang Easter hymns and said prayers and there was readings,a very beautiful yet moving service that reminded us of the real meaning of Easter .
After the service ready to place my flowers, with the church behind me.
And so on this Good Friday ,I will leave you with the words of our Lord 'Love one another'
