An Easter Wish-

Pictures with the Easter Bunny: $5


Candy and plastic eggs for a hunt: $25


Getting your face painted like a wild animal: $3

Knowing the real meaning of Easter;
Jesus died for our sins and rose from the grave: Priceless


The resurrection gives my life
meaning and direction
and the opportunity to start over
no matter what my circumstances.
~Robert Flatt

Are you going to church for Easter?
I hope you will.
Easter is SO much more than plastic eggs and candy!
It is so much more than new clothes and Spring.
If you don't have a relationship with God,
I would encourage you to start one.
He can change your life in ways you never expected-
Happy Easter and God bless!

What great pictures and you are so right about knowing the real meaning of Easter...it is priceless. Without the message of Easter I would be dead.If not dead, I woudl be without my children, my husband or anything good in my life. Seriously. It is only because of Jesus doing what He did that I was able to be set free from all my sins and the life that I once led.
Happy Easter and many blessings to you and your family!

Great post. Happy Easter!

Michelle said...

right on! That is even why we decided a few years ago, to leave the trappings of easter behind and just focus on our Lord.

This year, however, we had a spring egg hunt...and LOVED it. So we will continue doing that just keeping it apart from Easter.

Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday. I am blessed!

Hey girl!! You are always so wise with your words. And so clever too!

Knowing the REAL meaning of Easter is PRICELESS! He's risen, we're forgiven!

I love the pictures of the kiddos. What a cute Easter Bunny!!

Your comments on my blog always make me laugh...and smile...and laugh some more. I'm so glad I've got you around!! Oh, and YES elevator mirrors are the best! I also have a mirror in my living room that is longer than it is wide...and for some reason, I always look better in that mirror. That's where I take my last look in the morning before leaving. Gives me a little boost before leaving the house. ☺

We are definitely going to church Sunday. I teach Sunday School, so we're planning a fun day for our kiddos! I can't wait!

I'm posting a comment...don't FAINT!!

Tax season is almost over but I wish the last weeked of it didn't overlap with Easter. It has totally overshadowed it for me.

I will be in church tomorrow!!

Oh how I've missed you my blogging friend! Hope all is well with you and your family!
