A cute bunny song in honor of Easter before I go to sleep tonight!
We have a family day planned. Baskets, breakfast and Bible study in the morning. In the afternoon and Easter egg hunt, The Lords Supper and the yummiest meal of the year. To me Easter is more special than Christmas. It is the day we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus. He died so that we may live. Stupid simple but hard for an adult to understand.
In a little while, after I know my kids are sleeping, I get their baskets ready and arrange them on the couch. The oldest two get e readers. $$$ but they have both asked for them. In one basket is a gift certificate for Build a bear and the final basket for my son has a few small toys and a movie. Nothing fancy or extravagant. It is what it is. Flowers basket is a little slim but next month she will get her very own computer and she needs more sports gear before the summer season begins. She is almost as tall as I am now. WOW they grow fast.
Easter is commercialized but not nearly as much as Christmas. There isn't the pressure to spend spend spend. Yes, you do have the Easter bunny but you have the story of Christ too which you can not separate from the holiday.
Best wishes to my blogging family! Remember why we celebrate and enjoy your day.
