Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin’ down the bunny trail.
Hippity, hoppity, Easter’s on its way!
How’s that for a non-traditional photo to kick off the Easter season? I was out for a walk last weekend, and passed by this crack in the sidewalk. It looks to me as though Peter Cottontail left an image of his carrot embossed here in the concrete to remind us that Easter is on its way!
Easter comes late this year on April 24th, so we have just 2 more weeks til it’s here. The meaning of the holiday is the heart of it of course: that Jesus died for us and rose again 3 days later. It’s also a holiday set on a backdrop of spring, pastel colors, new clothes, and oh yeah…candy!
Just because it’s an important time in our lives as Christians doesn’t mean that we can’t also enjoy it and have some good, clean chocolatey fun too. Now’s the time to get those bunny cake pans out of storage and get busy.
In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be sharing some Easter joy with you. We’re planning some Easter cookies, crafts,and maybe even a bunny cake!
