So here we are at good ole X in the alphabet. This is a letter for ABC Wednesday that takes a little creativity. Thank you to the ABC team for managing this meme and to Denise Nesbitt the founder.
Did you know that X stands for Christ and Cross and other stuff, too?
At Easter I make a Russian sweet cheese spread called Seernaya Paska that we spread on Russian Easter Bread that is called Paska by a lot of people and Kulich by my Russian relatives. In the Russian alphabet X is the first letter in Christ. We decorate the sweet cheese spread with an X and a B. X for Christ and B for arose/risen. Christ is Risen.
If you are a regular on my blog you know I like to wander around very old cemeteries. There are always a great variety of crosses to photograph. Here are a couple.
Windmills have a natural X visible from the formation of their rotor blades.
This windmill is located at the Mennonite Heritage Village in Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada.
This Windmill is located at Roozengaarde Tulip Garden in Mount Vernon Washington State.
That’s it for my offerings on the letter X. I’ll be curious to come around and see what you found for this challenging letter.
Summer has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere. I’m still watching all the World Cup Soccer I can fit in. Our bathroom renovation is progressing. Never a dull moment at this old house. Someone mentioned and I’m in agreement that we don’t seem to have ordinary weeks or days anymore. I’ll have to cling to the verse in the Bible that says…
“This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
