Thankful Thursday

I am thankful this Easter week for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He paid the price for my sins and for yours by dieing on the cross. He rose again and is preparing a place for those who trust in Him in heaven. Have you taken the time to ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior?

Easter Egg Fun

Last night we had fun together dyeing Easter eggs. The kids and Brandon always enjoy waiting for the outcome. The longer the time the more vibrant the egg. While the kids were doing that last night I wondered why do we do this? Where did it all start? So I did a little research to find the origin of the Easter egg. Here is what I found.

What is the origin of the Easter egg?
Exchanging Easter eggs with one another is a custom that goes back thousands of years. Long before its association with Easter, the egg was a symbol of rebirth. Many ancient cultures used the egg to symbolize both rebirth and the universe. Ancient peoples such as the Persians, the Egyptians, the Chinese, the Gauls, and the Romans all used the egg in their springtime celebrations. Thus the origin of the Easter egg predates the origin of Christianity. However, when Christianity spread to the lands of these ancient cultures, the exchanging of colored eggs became incorporated in the memorial celebration of Jesus' resurrection, the holy day that came to be known as Easter. These Easter eggs were colored and given as tokens to remind Christians of the tomb and Jesus' triumphant victory over death.

Brave Beauties

Grandma and Grandpa came to visit us this week. We spent an afternoon at the Butterfly Pavilion. The girls had a great time, Zach on the other hand was not as into the bugs but as soon as we found the play room he let loose. After much debate the girls, both much braver than me, decided to hold Rosey. Why? I have no idea. I still get chills up and down my spine just thinking about it. They are my brave little beauties.
