Hello friends– I wonder if you are celebrating Easter this year. We are. I have the ham in the fridge, the table pulled large and to set for family. And Easter eggs waiting to be hidden for the grand-girls.
But my true celebration is in the quiet of my heart and mind. I pretty much wept through the Good Friday evening service tonight– full to overflowing with the depth of God’s love for us. Jesus giving himself to make us children of God. So grateful.
“Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and to go the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of this love.” John 13:1

Hello Rhonda! We have completely different tradition in Czech Republic. UK is, I guess, similar with yours 🙂 However, we are trying to keep ours 🙂 Hopefully, you had a great time! Hugs!!
Now you have me curious Vero. I’m wondering about the Czech Easter traditions. I’m imagining beautiful painted eggs–?? How do you celebrate? hugs hugs.
Exactly something like that! And much more… I am going to post something about it… I think it is really unique tradition 🙂

The first day of April this year is also the day Christ rose from the dead – a powerful coincidence. May we all remember his love, triumph, grace and the reason for our faith this Resurrection Sunday!
