egg cellent!!

Easter Weekend is here!!! no work just lots of time to relax with the family and remind ourselves about what this holiday is all about.

I think people (in general) tend to freak out that Easter has become such a commercial holiday full with chocolate, bunnies, baskets and hot cross buns! They whinge because the "true" meaning of Easter is lost!

Ok so here is my rant to those people......

The true meaning of Easter is only lost if we don't teach our children and others around us about why we celebrate this special weekend. I see it as a fantastic opportunity to speak to others about Jesus and what He has done for us.

Unfortunately the people with this information are too busy whinging and whining about how there are too many eggs on the shelves, hot cross buns were on sale too early and how the easter bunny is here to take over our lives!!!! Really people?!! Wake up!!

My children are very well aware about the true meaning of Easter. We understand that Jesus died on the cross and came alive on Easter Sunday. We give eggs as a symbol of new life. I don't buy chocolate bunnies out of principle but eat my fair share of purple wrapped mini eggs! Sure the kids enjoy the easter bunny, they eat hot cross buns many weeks early but they are able to tell you why the buns have a cross on them. It's about educating them, talking to them and spreading the Good News of Jesus.

Stop being negative about it and use it as an opportuntiy to teach your children and others around you what it is really all about.

These eggs are what I use to teach the kids about Easter. They are great!! Each day you open an egg to reveal a little clue that helps you tell the story of Jesus! Love em!!

So enough of my rant. Sorry people that just flowed like a water fall after a little incident at the shops. I felt it wasn't right to verbally attack the person, so i came home to type my thoughts!!! Gotta a love a  rarely argues back!!! lol

So here are a few Easter ideas for you to par take in over the next few days...Enjoy!!!
