Signs of Easter..........

Happy Easter to all my blogging friends who bring me so much pleasure...............



Three nails were used on the cross to pierce Jesus' hands and feet but love held Him to the cross.....love for His children........








On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross, the emblem of suffering and shame.............

Up from the grave He arose, with a mighty triumph over His foes, He arose a victor from the dark domain and He lives forever with the saints to reign.......




Eggs under cloche...........




Front door.......................



Welcome to our home......................................

Happy Easter, Betty! Loved your post. Are the Emu eggs dyed??

Betty said...

No, the eggs are not dyed...they are naturally bluish-green and very hard almost like china.

So enjoyable to see all the signs of Easter at your home. Emu eggs are certainly unusual!

The nails are an AWESOME reminder of what Jesus did for us!!! Thank you VERY much for that photo!!!

I have to ask about the emu eggs... what exactly will you do with them? And does God make them that color? Or are they colored for Easter??? Probably silly questions, I know.. :)

Happy Belated Easter dear Betty! I just love all your Easter decorations:-) The picture of the nails really brought home to me what Jesus went through for US, thank you for posting that. xoxo

Emu eggs in a basket...how unique! I love all your decorations and that hymn.
The nails are a simple and harsh reminder of what Jesus suffered for us. Thanks for reminding us of his great love.
