Happy Easter!

Happy Easter
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

John 11:25-26



The above verse means SO much for us and it means so much for what this holiday stands for.  Easter-the day Jesus Christ rose from the grave and defeated death and gave us everlasting life (if we so choose it).  May we never forget what this holiday is all about..sure the celebration is fun (Easter egg hunts, get togethers, dinners, etc.), but may the meaning of what this day is to represent never lose significance and may it always be on my mind throughout the whole day.
I chose this verse to go on a lot of the gift/treat bag tags that I made up for kids this Easter.  I made around 61 bags and filled them with treats for my kids' class, friends, etc.  It was a cool project that the kids and I enjoyed doing together and the bags turned out great.
Now, today I am putting turkey and ham in to bake and fixing up what is left to fix of the food for dinner and its off to Church too, of course.  We plan to have quite a few people here today probably around 15-20 people and lots of food and a huge egg hunt with lots of eggs filled with lots of treats.  Its gonna be a good day!
Happy Easter and may we always remember that Jesus is the reason for this day's celebration!
