A sweet, dear, crafty friend Jeanette made these fabric eggs several years ago. Each one has beautiful colors........
These look good enough to eat but they aren't real chocolate.
I like bunnies and don't think you can have too many......We have two concrete sitting bunnies in our yard... along with small ones here and there peeking out of shrubbery and flowers.....and we have real ones come to visit from time to time. I think they think Mr. McGregor lives here.
A couple of weeks ago when I was visiting my daughter and family, I attended church with them. The minister called the little children down to the front for Children's Church. He had a brown pasteboard box. He said, " when I show you what's in the box more children will probably want to come down." Opening it, he took out a beautiful brown, fat rabbit. "This is our ten year old family pet. Immediately other children came down. Holding it under his arm he asked, "Is this what Easter's all about?" One little fellow answered, "Yes sir." He quickly went on to tell why we celebrate Easter.
Can you imagine going to the Garden of Gethsemane in the early morning hours with the ladies on that first day of the week, possibly there was dew on the grass as they walked wondering how in the world can we possibly roll back the huge stone that blocked the entrance to the tomb. Arriving at there, seeing the stone rolled back, the empty tomb and the angel declaring, "He is not here, He is risen!" They must have looked at one another in shock and disbelief at what they were hearing. That statement has rung down through the ages and will til the end of time.
What do bunnies and Easter have in common? Nothing..... I like them year round just like I love the birds, puppies, kitties and other animals.....because they are a part of God's creation.As to Easter eggs, the baby chick coming forth out of the broken shell could represent Jesus coming forth out of the grave I suppose.....Our little ones enjoy hunting eggs at Easter but they enjoy hunting them in August or any other time, too.
Let us not forget the real meaning of Easter...........
