It’s all about Persp-egg-tive

So I’ve decided on April 1st (ironically April Fool’s day), that I would host an Easter Egg hunt with my Etsy Store and Facebook Fans. I’m looking to promote interaction. I love when people post on my JeWeL 4U Facebook page, but I think most people don’t think to interact with a ‘business page’.

Anyway, this maybe silly, but I thought long and hard about the egg hunt situation. After all Easter is NOT about eggs, bunnies, and sugar infused goodness.  It’s most importantly about my savior Jesus Christ rising from the dead!  Without that, my souls purpose does not exist. So the last thing I would ever want to do is degrade the most amazing event in our universe’s history.

For most, an egg, is an egg – is an egg. I get it. So I could see how Christians could be up in arms about an egg hunt. After all “THAT’S SACRILEGIOUS”!

But for me, this year most especially, an egg is symbolic of something more.  Lil’ Sophie will be participating in her first egg hunt. This is something I never imagined for her. And with each moment as I watch her struggle to bend over, balance herself, collect her egg, while dragging along a basket – I will know what a blessed miracle is taking place. For me, every Easter egg is not only a reminder of Jesus being alive, but what an incredibly powerful Maker we have that is capable of ALL things!  He rose Jesus from the grave!!  I was not there, I did not see it. But I watch the impossible walking in my living room every day.  I am humbled, blessed, and so grateful!

Thank you God for our living Jesus and the miracles you allow us to witness.

With that said…… Tomorrow it will be time for a hunt (with directions to follow, oh.. and prizes!)  I hope that you remember this story as you look for silly little eggs and will be reminded of what is true about Easter.

It’s a day of miracles!

About Jenny Bagwill

You know those milestone moments in your life where the course you were going completely jolts you into reevaluating all you think or believe? Mine came in 2010 along with a precious baby girl. My healthy pregnancy, produced a baby with many internal defects unveiling themselves after birth like a stack of falling dominos. We lost track of her surgery count once we hit double digits. By the grace of God, our little fighter has survived an open heart surgery as well as a liver transplant along with a myriad of tests, blood work, and medical visits. She’s doing quite well, and we share her journey here: http://www.lilsophie.wordpress.com I hope you take the time to read about our girlie and possibly leave a word of encouragement. My milestone moment (that has continued over the last 2 years), presented many idle hospital hours where I used my time to make hair clips for our little girl who battled to live. It also crossed my path with numerous families in many heartbreaking situations. This is when I decided to use my creativity to do what I can to help others. I try to use my God-given talents to encourage and inspire others which you’ll see me blog about here. I also make a lot of custom pieces to raise awareness of illnesses, syndromes, and diseases that may hit close to home with you. As you’ll see my pieces often contain encouraging words – things hard to say to others in the midst of their dark place. You can view, shop, or place a custom order at here at my JeWeL 4U Etsy Shop - http://www.etsy.com/shop/jewel4u And because our Lil’Sophie has had a liver transplant I always encourage others to consider registering to give the gift of life: http://www.organdonor.gov View all posts by Jenny Bagwill
