'Easter is when Jesus loves us sooo much and made us friends with God and there's a bunny.' - Lauren
Ah, commercialized holidays, I love you. It's amazing how little I pondered the combination of Jesus' resurrection and Easter bunnies before we had children. But wow, when you try to incorporate both - the fun of Easter morning and hiding eggs and candy and pastels...with the BIGNESS of God's love and Jesus' sacrifice and the resurrection and new life. Well, it's a strange combo.
But, I love it. I want them to have both. I want them to have the excitement of the holiday way before their sweet little minds can grasp the hugeness of it.
So, Easter bunny - eat your heart out....
