Easter Sunday

Happy Easter everybody. A busy day in our house - we've got church this morning and then all the family is coming for lunch. :) One of my favorite things to do is ALL be together to celebrate the holidays - and this is one of my favorite holidays. A day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ . . . It's been a fun weekend to discuss with the kids Jesus' death, burial - and resurrection. :) To be honest, it's something we talk about a lot - Micah loves to talk about how Jesus is no longer in the tomb! But especially these past few days it has come up a lot -- and I'm glad that this particular holiday is not one completely spoiled by eggs & candy. ;)

SURE - we've got candy - and we've got eggs too! But both kids have latched onto the TRUE meaning of Easter . . . and they're happy to celebrate ANYTHING with candy and a hunt for it! So - Happy Easter - Happy Resurrection Day.

Here's a great resource from Focus On the Family - helping your children to understand the true meaning of Easter. :) http://www.focusonthefamily.com/parenting/holidays/celebrating_the_easter_season/do_your_children_understand_easter.aspx

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed!” –Isaiah 53:5

Oh - and because all blog entries are SO much better with pictures - here's a couple more from the Callaway family. I'm telling you what - I just cannot get OVER how stinkin' CUTE these kids are!! ;)
