    Happy Easter!

    He is Risen!

    Easter should be the greatest holiday.  It is the day that Jesus paid it all and overcame death and the power of the evil one, forever and ever! His love for us gave us new life and access to our Father.  There is no better gift than His gift of eternal life.

    “He swallowed up death in victory; the Lord God will wipe away tears from all their faces; he will take the reproach from his people and the earth, for the Lord has spoken it!”  Isaiah 25: 8

    Easter Connection

    My first job was being the Easter bunny during Easter break; working for a department store in Honolulu.  You can imagine how hot it was in that costume in the tropical heat.  I made good money for a seven year old though.  My older sister played the bigger bunny.  It was so much fun…I even got to ride with the governor of Hawaii on the back of the limousine for the Easter parade.

    My Easter Decor

    The handmade wooden eggs that I decorated so many years ago…an Easter tradition.


    Have a wonderful time celebrating new life with your family and friends!  

    Easter blessings to you!

    We have not hosted a family Easter Day in at least a decade, we’ve always celebrated out of town at grandmas’.  It was so delightful to be able to cook and share our feast with three of our children and friends. Here was our menu:

    Because He Loves Us

    The Love of God

    The Prince of Heaven came down from Glory to take our place because of His great love for us…we can not even begin to understand how much it cost. May you be totally immersed in His Love for you!
