Happy Easter!!

When I was a little girl, my Grandmother made me new a Easter dress every year for Church service.  She'd take me on a special trip to the fabric store and I'd pick out the dress pattern and material all on my own.

Then on Easter morning, before our family went to Church, I'd get my picture taken in front of the Azalea bush and it's bright pink flowers framed my new dress in the background.

That is my favorite memory of Easter.  It represents love and kindness and was exactly what Jesus wanted for all of us.  For many Easter means bunny rabbits, hunting for eggs, candy and presents, but that isn't what it is about.

For me it's about showing kindness and living a life that is full of joy representing what the Christian religion is all about.  It is a reminder of what Jesus died for, and how we should live our lives.  I love Easter and I love Christ and my life now that God is in the center of it; following Christ was the best decision I ever made.

Since Easter is one of my all time favorite holidays I made a little Easter basket of goodies for you to enjoy from Etsy.com.  Happy Easter and have a very blessed day!

My memories are similar. We dressed up in our Sunday finest and always went to Church. I brought my children up in that same tradition. We were always surrounded by love and family.

Thank you for sharing your story and for featuring my plaque in this wonderful collection.

May blessings abound for you and yours!
