Hello and Happy Spring! It feels strange to be opening up this blog and writing again. I have been focused on the books for the past few weeks and have missed sharing with all of you. My study time is nearing the end – only a few weeks to go. Whether I pass or not at least I have learned a lot! I did take a few hours this past week to work on a few Easter creations. You know by now that I love to decorate for the seasons and holidays so this was a good distraction.
When I picked up a couple wooden bunnies at the Habitat Restore for Farm Fresh Style’s thrifting challenge a few weeks ago, I knew I wanted to create some bunny themed items for Easter. I also had this cute little child’s rocking chair my dear friend wanted me to paint so I thought they would go well together.
It used to be getting yummy Easter baskets filled with goodies. To most people Easter probably still means the Easter bunny, candy and getting a new dress. While I still enjoy giving my family some goodies on Easter morning, as a Christian it is a day to give thanks to Jesus for giving his life for the redemption of our sins. Easter gives us tangible evidence that Jesus did not stay dead on Good Friday! It is evidence that He truly is our Resurrection and Life. He took the punishment we deserved and gives us new life. It gives me hope that all the suffering, brokenness, heartache and sickness we see will come to an end because He lives and if we are His children we will live forever without the burdens that come in this broken world as a result of sin.
Cut a piece of embroidered linen to stencil on an Easter message and made it into a banner. This framed verse is from my grandmother that she’s had around forever- just needed a new painted frame.
I pray you all seek Jesus and find out what He can mean in your life.
