God bless and Happy Easter everyone 🙂 I am tuckered out from a weekend of Piratey fun (I’ll post pics on Monday). But I am so excited about Easter 🙂 It’s been so great focusing on the resurrection these couple of weeks. My parents and inlaws will be with us in church. It’s going to be nice :). I’m leaving you with some Resurrection videos and some pics of our celebrations up to this point.
On Good Friday we did the Easter story egg hunt with Resurrection puzzle pieces. We also had smores. The hunt was at night so we used glow sticks.
Tonight (errr last night…) we colored eggs and tomorrow (err today) we will hide them. The golden egg will be empty to remind us of Christ’ Resurrection and how he is our greatest prize.
Clips from my favorite movie, The Gospel of John:
Easter Is (I think this is from the 70’s. very cute story with a moral)
Also, last Sunday I challenged you to start a family night once a week where you put away the electronics & spend some face time together.I mentioned that you could play games, go to the park, play music together etc etc….there are tons of options. If you’re single then I challenge you to have some solitude without electronics…or maybe you could visit family. Visit your parents etc…don’t let your relationships slip past you. The challenge is still there and if you’ve taken the challenge please share your experiences with me in the comment section. 🙂
We usually do game night but the last two weeks have been different. We always do devotions and prayer. One week we played music together. And it was kewl.
Last week we planted our garden….some of it in the dark. That was a very productive family night 🙂
We’ll probably do games this Monday. I’m up for new ideas though if you want to leave me some 🙂
Well, folks happy Easter! Remember the High King Lives! ~Amber Dover
