Sneek Peek

This weekend is shaping up to be all kinds of busy, but I wanted to leave you with a sneak peek of a certain someone's Easter basket.

Tonight we will be dying Easter Eggs for family night.   Did you know that for Christians the Easter Egg is meant to be a symbol of the resurrection of Christ?  They were traditionally died red to symbolize the blood of Christ, the hard shell symbolizes the tomb, and cracking the sucker open is to remind us that Christ rose within that tomb.  I don't know about you, but remembering the history and representation of these traditions helps to ground me and make me to remember that this weekend is about so much more than chocolate and a fuzzy rabbit.

We will be heading to church on Friday for the Good Friday service, then up to Matt's parents for the day on Saturday. 

Easter Sunday promises to be a good day with church in the morning, lunch at my Mom's, then dinner at my Dads.  Can you say  HONEY GLAZED HAM??

How will you be celebrating Easter this year?

  1. I had never heard that about the egg, and then they were talking about it on the radio! How neat!
