It's been such a wonderful Easter weekend for us...we've been enjoying having Daddy home for an extra day. we've been enjoying the warm weather. we've been enjoying the time to reflect on what Jesus did for us.
Isaiah 53:5, "He was pierced for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed"
As we were dying eggs I was talking to the kids about how our sin makes us ugly and brown, like all the colors mixed together, but Jesus' death on the cross cleanses us as white as snow- just like the eggs. And Jackson said, "Jesus brings us pieces and puts it in our heart, but not pieces of gum- that's Nani" I think he was talking about peace...and it probably stemmed from the fact that we were having a very unpeaceful day...but, I don't think I've stopped giggling since he said it.
And, I just love how my son immediately thinks of having peace in your heart when he thinks about Jesus!
fyi...dying eggs with 4 little people might look kind of cute, but is probably not a great idea...
