Reading about Jesus' resurrection just never gets old. It is thrilling to know that Jesus defeated sin and death. I serve a risen Savior!!!
Celebrating the resurrection is exciting and I planned a couple of extra special things for the kids. After everyone was tucked in bed Saturday night, I hid plastic eggs in the house. I left a "you've been egged" note for each of the kids in their room. They also had a bag of jelly beans along with "An Easter Promise" card.
The kids were excited Sunday morning. Even though our weather was cold and gloomy with some snow, nothing could dampen our spirits as we prepared for church .
A blogging friend of mine from Be Thou Exalted made an empty tomb cake. Since I loved her idea, I made one too. Not only did my kids like it, but the people at church enjoyed it. An empty tomb cake makes much better conversation than bunnies and eggs :).
It was a great joy to have a first time visitor Sunday. We also had a couple ladies come that has not been in awhile. Please continue to pray as we tell of Jesus and His love.
