Bringing Easter to Life!

HE lives!


Of course...
Yet, sometimes, we forget...
We don't place our full FAITH, front-and-center in our lives...

It is my goal, this Easter season, to bring to life... the life of Jesus.

My kiddos love their Easter bunnies.  (Our real Lionheads, down in the basement.)

They love coloring eggs... and all of the chocolate that comes in the Easter basket!


I want them to understand, the TRUE meaning of Easter...

What Jesus endured on this particular week...

 (Crafted by Evan, today)

I want them to understand Jesus' roots (Tribe of Judah) and what the Passover means...
That word "Passover" they see on the calendar.
And both the Old Testament Passover and the New Testament Passover.

In case, it has never been explained to you,
The Old Testament Passover is when GOD delivered the Israelites (Jews)...
Out of Egypt.
So, it's a celebration of FREEDOM.

The New Testament Passover, celebrates FREEDOM, as well...
How GOD sent JESUS, to set us all free.

I love this time of year...
Even more so, this particular year, as our whole family is going deep into it.

We decided today, Palm Sunday, what our plans are for the week...
All based on our giftings.

Karis, the crafter, will make an Easter craft everyday this week, as she remembers Jesus.
(She made the tomb centerpiece, pictured above.)

Evan, gifted with wisdom, will introduce us to different Bible verses, this week.

Karrigan, the artist, will draw a different scene about Jesus' life, this week.

Kevin, the head of the household, will pray for our family each day, this week.

And I, the meal-maker, will come up with some traditional, Easter foods...
Some from the Jewish Passover.

I hope our ideas this week, will inspire your families to delve deep into all HE did for us...

To this you were called,
because Christ suffered for you,
leaving you an example,
that you should follow in his steps.
1 Peter 2:21


("Happy Holiday" in Hebrew)
