This year our Easter was completely different than any other Easter we’ve ever celebrated. We didn’t do the big Easter breakfast, or the big Easter dinner and the Easter bunny came to our trailer a few days early…which lead to a lot of speculation as to whether the kids would be able to hunt him down. They left carrots out and various veggies, hoping to catch him in a snack.
Mummy and Daddy kept spying the Easter Bunny but he was super quick and the kids were just not able to see him in time, however they did find many clues of his presence.
Those carrots and veggies did eventually get eaten, in fact one carrot was found the following morning with rabbit bites in it…made by a real rabbit to everyone’s surprise! There were also little gifts of books and chocolates left in a basket. It was a lot of innocent bunny fun!
Then there was this morning, my favourite part of all. The kids climbed into bed with Mummy and we snuggled and talked about the real reason we celebrate Easter. We talked about how Jesus died on the cross for us so that we can have our relationship with God. That he rose again so we can be with God in heaven one day but also just as important, that we can be with Him now! For all the fun that the bunny brought us this weekend we are so very well aware that there would be no fun, no smiles, no reason to live without out our beloved Lord and Savior! So yes, my favourite part of the whole “Easter” weekend was watching my children with their big, wide eyes and happy smiles as they listened to the wonderful Word of God!
1 Peter 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…
