Easter via “Cellphone Cam”

Easter Sunday… as seen through the lens of my cell phone. 🙂

For some reason our family was never into the whole “Easter hunt” thing. I can’t really remember doing “egg hunts” etc. growing up… and we still don’t now that I’m older, haha.  However, on Easter morning… our table is always laden with various Easter type candies.  I baked Maple Nut Scones for our family’s Easter breakfast (please notice: I took a picture of food! 😀 Or, at least I tried, ok?!) Of course, no matter the day, Easter breakfast wouldn’t really be complete without coffee…

Easter chocolate from Oma:

I remember the days when the only way to get this stuff was when someone brought it from Germany!

 

The Easter lily on our counter. Our spring wreath and some tulips. I LOVE that spring…means flowers! 🙂

In the evening our church service was called “the road to Calvary”.  We read through the different events leading up to the resurrection.

Some tangible reminders of what we remember at Easter:

A palm leaf, similar perhaps to what the people waved in the triumphal entry. Perfume, a reminder of the spikenard Mary wiped upon Jesus’ feet.  30 coins, the price they paid for Jesus. A cup and bread, reminds us of the last supper. Thorns, used for His crown.  A sponge, it was dipped and offered to Jesus as he hung on the cross.  Dice, for they cast lots for his clothes. The cross reminds us how He died. Strips of cloth; they wrapped His body in these after He died.

 

But this is the reason we celebrate!

 

Hope your Easter was as special as mine! 😀

Always, Aims
