Warning—unless you are my mom this is probably going to be a little drawn out for you!!
Of course with Easter coming up this weekend, I had to post about Easter’s gone by. Easter has always been a time to remember our Lord’s sacrifice and resurrection. We have tried to take the focus off the commercial and on to the Spiritual, the reality of a Savior. Even when the kids were super little, and I have taken a lot of criticism for it, we do not have an Easter bunny or other fairy tail creatures for that matter. Although he is not banned, we just treat the bunny as a fun story like, Cinderella or Toy Story. I do make Easter baskets and small gifts but it is given with the knowledge that God blesses us and we can provide these gifts to celebrate the Resurrection. We always enjoy family time and lots of candy—I think I have eaten a bag of Reese’s eggs this week…
I was trying soooo hard to get a good Easter picture on my own—HA!
ready for church
I don’t know what I was thinking—inside!
I wonder if the TV was on…
egg hunting at Nanni’s
…that I just woke up and I get to have presents and candy stupor
Early morning Easter baskets
egg hunting at home
I guess we never had an egg hunt, or baskets, or parents this year…
We must have colored eggs while, swimming—this is the only picture I have!
Apparently we didn’t have Easter at all that year!
But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
