By the time Easter arrived I was overcome with gratitude and while watching the Passion of the Christ with two local island girls I was moved to tears. He said YES to the most horrific and painful plan that His Father ever devised. Someone needed to die for the crimes, the offenses, the abuse, the neglect, the SIN that separated us from the Father. I am grateful He did!!
We also watched the movie Son of God, and the TV series the Bible. All those images just conjured up feelings of gratitude and thankfulness in my spirit.
When my kids were small I used to decorate eggs with them. I hadn't planned on doing it but when Rubeen and Ashley came by the house on Good Friday I decided to ask if they wanted to decorate eggs for fun. They looked at me with this blank look on their faces... decorate eggs??? why?? So I was able to show them food dye and how to make different colours and how to colour with crayon and decorate them. They loved it!!
