Weekend Roundup “E”

1. Starts with “E.”

2. A Favorite

Ichthus was the Greek word for “fish.” In the early church sometime during  the end of the first century, the word was made into an acronym. As such, ichthus compiles to Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr which translate to “Jesus Christ, God’s son, Savior,” based on this configuration. The early 70’s are a favorite time to recall in the history of my life and how this time has impacted the rest of my life.

3. Evening.

A lovely evening on the shores of Lake Washington looking across the lake to Seattle.

Thank you Tom for hosting The Weekend Roundup.  Feeling a bit nostalgic as I’m heading to Southern California for some extended family time this weekend.

  1. A fun look back at your life in the 70’s, Ellen. I was also young back then, but glad now for all my life’s experiences, except for the larger waistline..lol. Such good memories of youth to cherish

  2. Nice pictures, Ellen. I believe your dog’s name was Eddie. Thank you for the rundown on the fish symbol and the letter “I” associated with it. You found a pretty setting sun at the lake. Enjoy the relatives and drive carefully. I hope none of them were affected by the horrible weather there.

  3. Sisters that adore each other are wonderful to see – the smiles say it all! I remember the 1970s – an interesting time to say the least – and a time of growth for me…

  4. Hi Ellen,

    I love seeing these old pictures! You were such a pretty teenager with your lovely, long hair and pretty smile. 😀 I haven’t thought about Montgomery Ward stores in a long, long time. What a beautiful picture of a sunset on the lake. Thanks for sharing with us — hope you have a great weekend!!
