"He is Risen!!"
And the next person would respond:
"He is Risen INDEED!!"
Oh, how privileged I feel that Jesus DIED for my sins, and how GLAD I am that Jesus is ALIVE again!!!
We had a simple but wonderful Easter.
~Our children LOVE dried fruits and nuts. When they see those in my kitchen, they often beg for a piece of fruit or some raisins, etc. So, that is what we decided to basically give them in their Easter
2 kinds of nuts and 3 or so kinds of dried fruits, some colorful candies, and they each got a dark chocolate candy bar, a choc. ball, and a pack of Tic Tacs. I put the treats in clear plastic bags and tied them with purple and white polka dotted ribbon for our girls...~
We "sealed the tomb" with kitchen towels and explained to our little ones that our hearts sort of feel sad leaving our cookies all night...but that it was REALLY SAD for the disciples of Jesus to walk away from his tomb!!! ~
I got the privilege of playing the piano for the choir.~
They traced and cut out material to put on top of the people as their clothes, the trees, etc. ~
On the way home Noah mentioned to me how "confusing" it feels to us that it is actually FALL here...and EASTER at the same time!!
I told him, "I know! One doesn't know whether to decorate with pumpkins or wear white Springy clothes." =)
We're EXCITED that I.H.C. starts today! We've planned our schoolwork/schedule accordingly and plan to watch EVERY service if possible!!!
We are PRAYING that God's sweet presence will be felt during the services! May we each one be revived!
For those of you who get to go in PERSON...ENJOY EVERY MINUTE FOR ME!!!!!! =D
