Because I love Easter. A lot.
We had a blast getting ready for it! Deborah and I have mini lessons (ideally daily) where we go through a different story and message in this Gospel Art Book I have.
Just a side note on how fabulous it is - it hits all the major scripture stories, starting at the creation of the world in the Old Testament and moving forward. It's awesome, with beautiful art & so easy to teach from with all the scriptural references - I love it. I got the hard copy for a couple dollars, but it is free online here, or as an ap. But I digress.
We have been doing these lessons for quite a while now, and it just happened to work out that we were studying the end of Christ's life around Easter. My favorite day was when we learned about the triumphal entry and reenacted the hosanna shout. Her little voice! I couldn't get the video to upload, so we just get a snapshot.
And a fun Easter basket to collect eggs in! Er... bonnet. :) I seem to remember a song about that.
|Our little Easter feast :) With homemade gravy from our homemade broth. Oh my goodness. It's so superior. More on that later. It's a game changer!|
She is such a dipper. ;) She believes every dance should end with a dip and she gives it her all. :) So be ready if you're her partner.
And I think this is my favorite Easter video ever. Poignant, powerful, and just 2 minutes long. And I have to throw out how much I love the music. It's just all around amazing, and really touches me. It's worth the time.
I looove Easter. I'm so thankful for Jesus Christ. Because of Him I can change, become better, start fresh, and live with my family forever. The tomb was empty. He lives!
