Happy Easter to all our loved ones and blog friends today.
As a mom and parent, I was thinking this morning about God and the love he had for His SON and how hard that must have been the day His SON died on the cross for all our sins and how miraclous this day must have been when His SON rose from the grave. It truly is hard to imagine but I know for one that I am so blessed to have eternal life and that my debts have been forgiven.
So what does your day entail? I love Easter Sunday and always did when I was a kid too. I couldn't wait to put on my new dress and Sunday shoes, patten leather of course. Then after church my brother and I played craps with our candy. Now that might sound funny but at the end of the day we had all the candy we both wanted and had hours of fun doing so. So what you does your family do?
Unfortunately we didnt make it to church today. After looking through one basket today, Demi came our of the bathroom with a trash can with a stomach ache and her mama has a very sore throat. But we will go to our family dinner here at 2pm and then come home after the kids have fun hunting their eggs at Mimi's (my SIL's mother's house) The kids have fun while the adults eat, visit, play games and nap depending on who you are :-)!!
Have a wonderful Easter weekend and remember to enjoy the simple things today and the real meaning of this holiday. PS - We celebrated Passover on Monday with our jewish friends and learned about how they celebrate this holiday and the food eaten to represent it's meaning. The horse radish I ate almost burned a hole in my nose but other then that it was such a blessing to spend an evening with friends and learning that the horse radish was meant to represent the hard times and prosecution the JEWS encountered. The best part was the matza(sp) which both girls enjoyed very much.
Be back later on with some pictures from today. Until then enJOY this SONday and your families and loved ones.
