Happy 2014 Easter!

Have a blessed Easter Season.

---

Palm Sunday April 13: Jesus arrives in Jerusalem.

---

Holy Thursday April 17: Roman Catholics and others participate in The Last Supper of Christ.

---

Good Friday April 18: Christ's Passion and Crucifixion for us. "In his body to the cross Christ carried our sins; by his wounds we are healed."

---

Easter Sunday April 20: Resurrection of Christ for us to help us understand the way to eternal life. "Jesus remember [us] when you come into your kingdom."

---

If incomprehensible, simply ask God (even if you think there is no God) and you will receive what you need. Be open when it happens.

Very Respectfully,

For style..it´s got to be 1, but for an all round action countess 2
Cheers

I also voted for #1. It is proper enough to fit the period of 1899/1900 without looking overly modern, yet still having allure.

DLI said...

I agree with the gentlemen.No 1 every inch a countess

Ross Mac said...

No 1 is well enough in a drawing room or Durbar, No 2 is too English looking for my taste but No 3 is just right for negotiating the Afghan passes on horseback.

I voted #2 for the all action heroine but #3 looks good as well; I thought #1 was impressive but a bit staid

#1 does have the style, #3 left has the correct gear for traversing the wilds of central Asia. #2 and her sisters look like they could beat up most takers.

Michael Mathews said...

I voted for #3 because she looked to come from an Indiana Jones movie. #1 is proper for certain occasions like the interrogation episode. #2 just didn't feel right for Khyber Pass, more for a Mummy movie.

I would vote for #3. It looks more Russian than #2, which looks like an English explorer.

Thank you everyone,
