an easter story

Poor Asher.   Mommy is at it again.

From April 2009

Oh well, it could be worse.

I have been challenged this year to look for ways to make the true significance of Easter a reality to my children. *Believe it or not, bunnies can be used to bring a greater understanding of the message of Easter.
Use a stuffed bunny rabbit to teach some of the characteristics of Jesus that we should all try to have.
Real Easter bunnies:
are white as snow because Jesus takes all sin away (Isaiah 1:18b)
are gentle, kind-hearted and forgiving (Eph. 4:32)
have big ears that are quick to listen (James 1:19)
have big eyes to look carefully and choose what is good (1 Thes. 5:21)
have no voice for complaining or arguing (Phil. 2:13)
are quiet in prayer, but hop with thanksgiving and rejoicing (1 Thes. 5:21)
have big feet to go tell others about Jesus so they can be like Easter bunnies, too (Matthew 28:19-20)
eat what is healthy by filling up on God’s word every day (Psalm 119:11)
