I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter! As we look at the easter eggs, baskets, egg hunts, ham, little girls in lace sock, little boys in short suits, and all of the other traditions, I want us to remember JESUS and what he did for us over 2000 years ago. His GRACE is shown through each one of us that has survived everything that has come our way.
I love the holiday and the feelings it stirs in me when I think of the "real" meaning of Resurrection Sunday.

Thank you, Pretti, for that reminder. It's so easy to get caught up in the chocolate, pastel eggs and all of the other things you mentioned. I love the thought that Easter is the beginning of spring, but never want to forget that Easter is so much more. I am grateful for what our Lord did for us, and still does for us, each and every day. Happy Easter - He is Risen!
P.S. I can't help it....I DO love the chocolate....... :oops:

Happy Easter to you all too. It is a comfort to know that He cared enough to die for us, He rose again and is right now preparing a place for us.
P.S. Jody...I like chocolate, too, but I have bad news......
My dog, Jewel, ate the Easter Bunny....sorry...
