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!
