But we know Easter is more than the fluff. Jesus; the Son of God, the Prince of Peace, died so that I might live. That I might escape death. I found a quote from an unknown author that says, "For when He was on the cross, I was on His mind." The thought of that is incredibly powerful and emotional. That's a love I cannot even fathom. How precious I am to Him. Me. A sinner who is so undeserving. How precious we all are, even those who might not believe.
On Good Friday I gently explained to the kids what the day was all about. We read a very age appropriate story and then after I outlined a cross on some sketch paper and told them to paint it however they wanted. They both really enjoyed it and now I have some forever artwork to cherish from my two favorite artists.
