He is Risen!

In the midst of new Sunday clothes and big family lunches and baking, it's been very easy for me to focus on the temporal things surrounding Easter, and not on the eternal reality that He is risen!
Easter Cookies

I came across this post today, which did a wonderful job of exposing my tendency to live like the disciples did after Jesus' death, in fear of rejection by the world.  Easter is a wonderful reminder that Christ is alive, and that He is far greater than the world.  May we live in light of that truth and proclaim Him boldly today and everyday.  Happy Easter!

P.S. Has anyone made resurrection cookies like the ones above?  Gus and Lula are too young to understand the Easter story this year, but this might be a good way to explain it to them next year?
