Happy Easter!

I’m going to share with you today a little of our Easter celebration. First, let us remember the reason for the holiday. Precious Jesus laid his life down for each and every one of us. He loved us so much that he suffered unthinkable pain. He died for us. And the best part of all, he conquered the grave. On the third day, he rose! He rose victorious over the grave. Now, by simply believing in him we will be able to live forever. What a precious, beautiful, ultimate gift!!!

Matthew 28

The Resurrection

1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. 2There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

5The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

8So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

The Guards’ Report

11While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, 13telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ 14If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.

The Great Commission

16Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

The kids have been having much fun this Easter season. They have been learning about our Savior. We have been to church, of course. My son has been learning about the Passion at school.

We also do Easter bunny stuff. We’ve dyed eggs, gotten Easter baskets, and hunted eggs. I’ll leave you with pictures of us dying eggs, and my daughter’s fun Easter outfit that I made. Her outfit was made with fabric from Jo-Ann. I kind of made up the pattern.

Enjoy the pictures, and we hope you and your family have a very blessed and Happy Easter!!!
