As it is Easter today, the kids and I are watching the Easter Story on video and have read the book, Miracle in the Morning, The Wonderful Story of Easter. It is beautiful, Joshua really does appreciate the whole story and he has such faith in God, it is such a picture of that child like faith that we are to have to enter the Kingdom of God. What a wonderful child God has blessed me with. Joshua told me this morning that even though he is a little bit shy about people, he wants Jesus to be proud and smile at him so he is not going to be shy to lift his hands and give himself to Jesus in worship. He told me that one of his friends said that it is weird but that he doesn't even care what people think, he is just doing it for Jesus. I say "AMEN!!!" And pray for that boldness to be in me!
We are painting Easter eggs soon and reading this book
Which is a story about 2 young children. It has the comparisson between a chick coming out of an egg and the new life of that, to Christ coming out of the tomb... RISEN, and new spiritual life. I just love it to read while painting Easter eggs so that hopefully they will know that this is why we do the Easter eggs, not because a bunny dropped them by.
I did hide easter baskets around the house with a little chocolate in them to celebrate the season, too and of course that was a huge hit! I will post tonight I hope, pics from today and our Easter fondue last night. God bless you all in however you are celebrating this awesome day worth celebrating!
