Easter re-cap

Here are some pictures of just one of the many activities we had over the weekend. This egg hunt went well, the kids had a lot of fun! It was quite chilly as you can see, and last year we were short sleeves! Either way, eggs were hunted, chocolate was found, eaten, and children were happy.

Hope you had a great Easter weekend and more importantly remembering just what Christ did for us. Danny & I did some studying of this special time. It seems like Easter has become just one of those holidays that come 'round every 12 months. It is SO much more! Easter weekend gives us LIFE. Christ went thru unspeakable pain and humiliation that none of us could fathom. He endured the horrible words and actions done to him all the while silently hanging on the cross. Being silent is not one of my strong points. When Christ finally spoke--He asked His Father to---FORGIVE THEM! Aren't you glad?!? His blood covered our sins, paid the debt, prepared the way. The best part... He didn't just die and that was it. He ROSE FROM THE GRAVE!

Luke 24:1-7
"1 Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them,[a] came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. 2 But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. 3 Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it happened, as they were greatly[b] perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. 5 Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, 7 saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’"
