  1. My mother was an amazing seamstress. Every holiday, including Easter, she made me and my two older sister coordinating dresses. We put on our beautiful new dresses Easter morning and before or after church mom held a photo shoot in our yard, lush with green and flowers. We each had our custom Easter baskets, overflowing with our favorite treats and colorful eggs! Mom always did Easter big! I’m glad she did though because those are some of my favorite photos!

  2. Well done, Robin! My Easter Sundays were similar. A fancy dress, shiny white or black shoes, an Easter hat, white sweater and white gloves. (It was the 60’s!) Egg hunts, church services, family picnics or dinners. Lovely memories of celebration!

  3. My childhood Easter memories were all about egg hunts and the Easter Bunny. My first Resurrection Sunday/ Easter was less than a week aster I came to Christ at age 24. It will evermore hold a very special meaning for me.

  4. I remember before, as a young girl going to Easter sunrise service with my friend whose dad was the pastor. It was always followed by a big pancake breakfast. What I remember most was that although I didn’t know Jesus as my Savior yet, something in me was stirred as I listened to the teaching and as we quietly watched the sunrise.

    As I look back, I realize that even then, God was beginning to stir my heart and nourish the seeds planted by my grandparents. Years later, when I met Jesus myself, I can see how He worked in my life even before I accepted His free gift. Perhaps that is why I am so amazed at every sunrise I experience…It is a beautiful reminder of His abounding love and grace to me and to everyone one of us. Thank you, Jesus for Your amazing grace.

  5. My memories of Easter were when our children were young, and they loved to go to any, and every Easter egg hunt we could find. This gave us a chance to get to know neighbors and their churches. Of course, my daughter loved a new Easter outfit and my son dreaded a new Easter outfit. We took pictures before church on Easter morning.

  6. My mom hid jelly beans inside, all over the house. We would find them maybe even years later.

  7. Easter a lovely time of year. You get a children in our house chocolate eggs. My Mum and Dad where not saved. You be sent to Sunday School you went all year round anyway to Sunday School. But Easter and Christmas made it more special as Christmas you learnt about this special Baby who was born in no fancy place. Just a humble manger with animals. Why he was born. Then you got a Easter time at Sunday School to learn why that baby grew up went to Calvary Cross for you. To lovely stories. Of such great love. But Easter is the best to me out of them all. As you learn why that Baby call Jesus went to Calvary Cross for you. All because he loved you. Wanted your to know how much he loved you to do that. Know your sin are forgiven and nailed to that old rugged cross. So as we that are saved can go to be with him one day in Heaven when we leave this earth. How lovely that is to know and learn when you are small. Those to stories. One of Christmas and the other of Easter how important they are in History. What one Baby did for our world. John 3 verse 16 says “For God So Loved The World That He Gave His Only Begotten Son That Whoever Believes In Him Should Not Perish But Have Everlasting Life” then we go on to read in verse 17 of the same chapter” For Go Did Not Send His Son Into The World To Condemn The World But That The World Through Him Mighty Be Saved” instant that so good to know what it say in that other verse 17 that the world might be saved through him. Oh what great Love is that for our Lord to do for us. We can do no greater thing for our Lord than by getting saved. Another verse in 3 John 4 God said he has not greater Joy than to hear that his children walk in truth. That means to come to know our Lord as our Saviour and our earthly Father. As we are all his Children and that why he did all this for us. So it good for us at Easter to celebrate Jesus going to cross for us. Letting him know we appreciate him doing this for us. Especially we that are saved. Like the song says. That I love such. “At the cross where I first saw the light the burden of my heart was rolled away. There are so many other lovely songs like that too. As Child at Sunday School I learned another nice one. “Jesus Love Me This I Know For The Bible Tells Me So.” So the Bible does.Love today’s reading. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xx

  8. Robin,

    For years Easter meant Sunrise Service at church followed by a potluck breakfast in fellowship hall. After that a regular service & then potluck dinner at pastor’s house with friends. It made for a long day. Especially since hubby worked.. This year will be a bit different. Going to church & celebrate loudly that Christ has defeated death. Death & sin no longer have mastery over me!! Hallelujah!! Then off to a friend’s house to give her a gift & pick up clothes & items for a yard sale. Then resting, listening to Christian music & thanking God for His wonderful awesome gift!!

    Blessings 🙂
