Easter 2009

We love Easter around our house! It is such a refreshing holiday! So awesome to know that our Lord and Savior is Alive! This Easter was no different. The girls got up early and found their baskets. Every year they get a new swim suit in their basket and they were so bummed when I made them take them off to get dressed for church.

Daddy was Jesus this year again in an outdoor presentation. It was so amazing. The "play" is called The Last Days. The entire performance is out in a vacant field. It starts of with a large gate where soldiers are standing . They stop you and ask what your business is in the town today. Once answering them we go through the gate to be greeted by palm frawns and everyone shouting Hosanna. Then you continue to walk along the path and you see children playing, livestock all around, a market with people working, etc. There are several people who stop you along the way to share their story. (I even learned how they make Olive Oil from 2 ladies) Then as you continue on you stop to listen to a man telling of the evening Judas betrayed Jesus, then you follow him over to the scene with Pilate and Jesus. It is amazing because all of a sudden you are in the crowd of people shouting crucify him and it really checks your heart. We followed it through all the way to the crucifixion and then a small movie clip in a tent that opens up the opportunity for those to come forward for salvation. It was AWESOME! Dax did such a wonderful job portraying Jesus.

Thank you Jesus for giving your life so that we can have ours!
