The other side of this postcard is quite interesting....can you understand what it says?
This postcard below is from Spearfish, South Dakota
|Passion Play Setting, Spearfish, South Dakota|
In 1932 Joseph Meier brought from Germany the Luenen Passion Play to settle permanently in Spearfish and to become the Black Hills Passion Play. He continued in the role of Jesus for six decades before his death in 2007. Soon after his death the amphitheater and all 23 acres were sold.

When teeming nature replenishes
the earth at Easter, may she
scatter seeds of gladness
in your life.
|From one, Dear Sister to another?|
This post card was printed in Germany.... and below is the other side to this "A Happy Easter"
Penmanship was not this sister's strong suit!
My last old time photo post card is a 3-D and one of my favorites....
Oops! What do you call this? A black duckling?
When I was eleven years old my sister passed away the day after Easter, so for me ever since then it holds a bitter sweetness. Perhaps that is why I so enjoy the memory of Easter with little chicks, a rabbit that loves to hide eggs, coloring my own eggs and one of my favorite gifts from my grandparents over seas....was a bunny (appeared to be made of soap) but once you unwrapped it and set it on the table everyday fur would grow, thicker and thicker! I've never been able to find them these days, but the memory is very sweet.
May happiness follow you all in everything you do this Easter, and everyday!
Certainly this quote makes much sense.... and somewhat sums up my feelings around Easter. "Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, faith looks up...." Guideposts
