Hello from Baldwin, how is everyone's week going? I hope everyone is having a good one. It sure has been a beautiful week, even with a little rain and cold temperatures. I am assuming the cold spells were, Red Bud and Dogwood winter. My peonies are coming up. That's all the flowers I have in my yard now. But I have been out this week and I continued to see so much of God's beauty -- red bud trees, fruit trees and many other trees -- blooming. Tulips and butter cups it seems everything is coming to life. Oh, what a beautiful time of year!!!

Don't forget the real meaning of Easter as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ this Sunday. Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice.

Kendall and Tiffany Jones hosted the Baldwin community Easter egg hunt on Saturday. There were 15 children there, and several adults. All the children found lots of eggs, most of them containing prizes. Each child received a treat bad. Everyone enjoyed watching the children hunt eggs and refreshments were enjoyed by all. The community Easter egg hunt was sponsored by the Baldwin Ruritan Club. Thanks again to Kendall and Tiffany Jones for hosting it.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Tim Cobb, Sunday; Houston Jay Miller, Monday; Ray Wilson and Ben Kelley, Tuesday; and Aja Jacobi, Thursday. I hope you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
