if you’re new to the blog, then you might’ve missed this from last year. since its such a great activity to do as a family and such a creative way to involve your kids in the Easter Story, i thought you might enjoy a repost!
so here’s a link to the post we did from last year around this time:
Easter Story Cookies:
that’s what we’ll be making tomorrow afternoon!
after i recover from the fact that my crazies are a TON bigger and look much much older than they did in those pics from last year! that, and the fact that my pre-prime lens photog skills are laughable…and it kinda makes me miss my old kitchen. however, i wouldn’t trade where we are now to have that kitchen back, cause afterall, we got to ride bikes on the beach to a local pizza place for dinner tonight. who needs a big ol’ kitchen when a great pizza place is just a bike ride away??
anyway…i found the Boy drawing on his arm with marker today. he was drawing a cross, and underneath he wrote the words, “Bad & Good.” i asked him about it, and he told me that today is a bad day and a good day. Bad = because Jesus had to die, but Good = because He did. i’d say that pretty much sums up the Gospel right there. leave it to an almost 7 year old to remind me what exactly we are remembering today.
so i’ll leave you with a song…presently one of my faves. i guess its not really an Easter song, but it pretty much covers how i get to relate to Jesus because of what He did on the original Easter Weekend!
click here to listen to it!
or you can just read the rich lyrics below:
Happy “Bad/Good Day,” Happy Resurrection Day, Happy Easter, Happy “Jesus Came to Rescue Us” Day!!
ps: its presently 11:49 pm here. i’m so tired that my eyes are halfway closed and glazed over, and my brain shut off about 20 minutes ago. the hubs is snoring on the couch next to me. but there’s supposed to be a pretty awesome meteor shower that starts at 1:00 am. we’re dying to see it. shooting stars are one of my most favorite things. but i’m taking bets on whether the hubs and i will make it to 1:00 am. any takers???
