Giveaway! Some Eggs for Easter…

The TSH and I attended a Weekend to Remember marriage getaway this past weekend. It was pretty great, and I picked up the resource below to use in teaching my daughter the Easter story. Then I thought you readers with young children might like one too, so I picked up an extra. If you know someone who might like one, please share this post with them. They are called Resurrection Eggs, and you can read about them here:

Giveaway starts tonight at midnight, ends Tuesday at midnight, and is available to international entries. If the winner lives in the lower 48, I’ll try to mail it so that it makes it to her by Monday. If she lives in Rhode Island, I’ll try to deliver it next Monday, and if she lives internationally, there is no way it is going to make it before Easter this year, but I will mail it soon.

To enter, leave a blogpost comment sharing one of your Easter traditions, and then click the rafflecopter link below to go to the widget (WordPress wouldn’t let me load it here.) Happy Resurrection Day!

Happy Easter Tuesday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Sunday remembering Christ’s sacrifice and triumph. We sure did. One of the most memorable events was taking PG to the communion service Sunday morning. Every time someone prayed thanking Christ for his death, victory, body, and blood (about 6 prayers total), she echoed a hearty “Amen!” in the otherwise quiet room. It reminded me of this quote from Jesus during the original holy week (Matthew 21):

15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the  temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were sore displeased,

16 and said unto Him, “Hearest thou what these say?” And Jesus said unto them, “Yea, have ye never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings Thou hast perfected praise’?”

I’m catching up around here, but I’ll be back Friday with a post on how to “rejoice with those who rejoice.” Until then, here’s a few pics from Saturday:
