Resurrection Sunday Preparations

We spent the week leading up to Easter Sunday looking for examples of new life!!
I'm constantly God-struck with wonder how the Lord is always revealing Himself and His Good News even in the grandeur of the world around us.
I think it is no mistake that we are seeing trees, and flowers, and grasses waking up at the same time we are remembering the anniversary of His death and subsequent resurrected life.
Those glimpses of hope.
Those promises of change.

This year we made a few little things to remind us of what we are remembering,
and the Biblical symbols we find that point to our Messiah, the Savior of the world.

"Behold, the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world."
John 1:29

We also made some the shape of the cross.
To remind us to:

"...NOT be conformed to this world, but be TRANSformed by the renewing of your mind.."

Romans 12:3  

To be formed into the shape, the image, of Christ.

We have also spent this entire last year preparing for this which just so happened to be possible on Resurrection Day:
