"Mom, can you just hold this egg right here, upright so it gets only the bottom red?"
The kitchen is filled with noise and laughter- everyone dying eggs and busy. Until all of a sudden I find myself alone holding an egg....
Our church family worked really hard on an Easter drama. It turned out to be a huge blessing. I cried about half the way through it! Wow. Especially when "Jesus" was dragging the cross and Ashlyn was singing The Power of the Cross.....
This, the pow'r of the cross:
Christ became sin for us;
Took the blame, bore the wrath—
We stand forgiven at the cross.
I was just so choked up and blessed to see these church family members that I love so dearly - acting and singing their hearts out - for Jesus!
The hugest blessing was that Dave invited a friend and she got saved! We will always remember this Easter.
The handsome pharisee (just kidding, he wasn't a pharisee :)
I know it seems that I am biased and only post photos of our girl. I promise the boys had an egg hunt too and I adore them as much as I do the girl- it is just that it is not quite as fun to take pics of their shorts and flipflops .....but they are cute too :)
We also got to have a baby's first egg hunt :) Our little friend was not sure about those eggs.
The hunt was good except for the ants in a few eggs, Dave stepping in doggie doo-doo, and the poison ivy sighting :)
Oh my dear- Sadie was mortified by the big bow I tied on her head.
She would not even look me in the eye...
OK- one last thing. I found this recipe in my recipe drawer. We did not get a chance to make them last week- but we may still make them this week- better late than never. I love the concept.
Whew! Thanks for sticking with me all the way to the end of that long string of photos! Hope your Easter was a good one of celebrating and remembering what Jesus did for us - and how He is Alive!!!
