“He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay”
We’ve had a few days recently that have brought hints of spring to the air…bringing spring fever to Everyday Living! And the arrival of spring means Easter is hopping upon us! Soon the pastels, bunnies and chicks will be making their debut for 2016! I love decorating with my collection of Fitz and Floyd rabbits and of course the fresh flowers that we will soon see…colorful hyacinths, lilies, and tulips!
While decorating for Easter is fun and brings a fresh feel to our homes, blogs, and social media accounts, one thing is central…the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! We are so grateful that Jesus defeated death forever so that we could live forever with Him. That’s a reason to celebrate! It is our heart that His resurrection and His goodness are celebrated everyday of our lives! Keeping that as the focus, our traditions for Easter center around our faith and family! We will attend our church service with beautiful music and sound teaching and preaching that exalts the name of Christ! Afterwards, we enjoy lunch at our home, which includes so many of my Mother’s recipes! I know that there will be an Easter egg hunt in the coming years with our granddaughter on the way! I guess we need to be scoping out good hiding places now! What about you? Do you have Easter traditions?
Today, I wanted to share some Easter tablescapes that I put together last year. Hopefully you can gain some inspiration for yours this year! Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom to enter the giveaway! You don’t want to miss it!
