Just a Quickie....
Busy weekend, including head injuries, marathon masses, sacraments, houseguests, holiday meals, egg-dying, Easter egg hunts, computer viruses and more.
Will write tomorrow. For now, please accept my apologies and a re-post of what I posted at Easter the first year J and Y were home with us.....
So kids, let Mommy explain to you all about Easter.
Jesus died on the cross for your sins.
Well, no, I know you weren't around back then, not your sins specifically.
He just did.
Then He rose from the dead.
No, not like a zombie.
He just did.
We decorate Easter baskets and dye eggs real pretty to symbolize springtime and new life.
Yes, I know Jesus was born on Christmas, but we celebrate new life at Easter. After He died.
We just do.
We eat chocolate eggs because .....
Well I don't know why exactly, but aren't they yummy? Don't touch that, you've got chocolate all over your hands.
OK, now let's all go outside and find the candy-filled Easter eggs that the Easter Bunny hid in the yard.
Hmmmm? He's a giant bunny that brings candy to good boys and girls.
No, honey, don't look afraid, he's a good giant bunny.
No, he didn't rise from the dead.
No, he's not related to Jesus.
Here, have some more chocolate and let Mommy go lie down for a little while.
