We had a wonderful Easter... woke up late, did the easter basket thing
(ps, how sad is it that I don't even put candy in em anymore?? My neighbors
all brought candy over and my mama gives a whole basket filled with candy too!)
This year, I stuck with essentials, bathing suits and flip flops :D
Here are our finger print/painted eggs :D
We headed off to church for a great sermon from
comparing Aaron's staff to the death and resurrection of Jesus.
The Israelites had 12 staffs (one from each ancestral tribe) and wrote their names
on them and placed them in the Tent of Meeting just as the Lord had told them.
"The staff belonging to the man I choose will sprout..."
(kinda funny that an object made from cut wood
would somehow give way to life once again,
just think of a walking cane)
The next day, when they went to check,
Aaron's staff had not only sprouted but had budded, blossomed and produced almonds.
Not just a sign, but an overly obvious sign- I love how God works!
Our Pastor compared it to Jesus, dying on the cross (the dead wood of the staff), and being raised to life, 3 days later (like the staff coming back to life). Easter!
I don't think I'd ever heard that story before about the staff! Pretty darn cool.
So after church, we headed over to my Aunt and Uncles to hang out by the pool,
do an Easter egg hunt, and sit fireside at night. A good day indeed!
Here is a lil' video from the morning scavenger hunt for the Easter baskets :D
And here's a lil' Easter throwback ;)
How was your holiday?
