Easter Island Style
Handmade encrusted seashell Easter basket
Baking off Easter Bunny Cookies & hot cross buns and dyeing Easter Eggs….so fun!I love Easter and all it stands for. This week has been very busy with all that happens during Easter. Went to a foot washing ceremony this week, Yesterday I went to a fish fry cuz it was good Friday & then to a Passover Seder, Beautiful & awe inspiring. Went to an Easter egg hunt this morning at church with story time, music and salvation Easter egg hunt. We are going to our Easter Production at church tonight. I think Easter has to be one of my favorite holidays of all time.
FAITH * HOPE * LOVE
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son &
who so ever shall believith in Him shall not perish but have ever lasting life! John 3:16.
HALLELUJAH, let heaven and earth REJOICE for what the Lord has done
I used parsley leaves to make this simple cross
The legend of the Sand dollar
There’s a pretty little legend
That I would like to tell
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in this lowly shell
If you examine closely,
You’ll see that you find here
Four nail holes and a fifth one
Made by a Roman’s Spear.
On one side the Easter Lily,
Its center is the star
That appeared unto the shepherds
And led them from afar.
The Christmas poinsettia
Etched on the other side
Reminds us of His birthday
Our Happy Christmastide.
Now break the center open
And here you will release
The five white doves awaiting
To spread Good Will and Peace.
This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me
To help us spread His Gospel
Through all eternity.
Saylor & I made a boat from seashells, a cross from seashells and a manger from seashells. Three young trees have big dreams for their future. The olive tree wanted to be a treaure chest, the oak tree hopes to be a mighty ship, and the pine tree only wants to stay on the mountain and point others to God. But all three trees are in for a surprise – because God has a much different, much better plan in store for them. In this classic story, discover how sometimes the dreams we have for ourselves are much smaller than the dreams God has for us. by Dahl Taylor
Some of our very favorite Easter books that we love and read at Easter time!
Here is my Salvation Cupcakes
I like to make them each year around Easter Time.
These are my famous “SALVATION CUPCAKES”. I decorate them so that the red velvet cake represents Christ’s blood, the black sprinkles represents our sin, and the white cream cheese frosting represents purity and forgiveness.
Rejoice He is Risen!
is for the blood of Christ shed on Calvary
is for the purity and holiness of Christ
is for the sins He graciously washed away
