Happy Easter


Good morning and happy Easter to all my readers!  Of course this is the day that we remember Jesus rising from the dead.  It still amazes me that he would care so much for us that he would come from Heaven, taking on the likeness of a man, and then humbling himself, was obedient even to the point of a terrible death on the cross, all so that there could exist forgiveness for sin.

Amazing!

For those of you who are logging in to find out who yesterday's Person-of-Mystery was, it was the Swedish explorer, Sven Hedin.  The last week has been pretty filled with travel and exploration for me.  As a younger man, I read Hedin's book, My Life as an Explorer.  It was novels like this that put a taste for adventure (and history) in me.  I defy someone to read books like Hedin's and not wish to similarly explore the world.

I was looking into Russian and Tibetan noblemen, Facial features said he was Caucasian, but the sword he had said Tibetan.

Adventure is the spice of life. I'm currently reading "In Search of the Old Ones" by David Roberts. Even though we've been to some of those places, the book still makes me drool.
May you & yours have a blessed Easter.

Hedin was one of the last great explorers and he explored territory along the old Silk Road. I can't remember where, but I recall reading that the Americans were still using his maps of Afghanistan during their initial military incursions.
