We would always go to church on Easter Sunday and we would generally go to the sunrise service. We would eat breakfast with our church family. After breakfast we would attend our church service.Our minister would always give a wonderful sermon about Easter. I would have on a new dress and a Easter bonnet on. My Mother would have a new dress on and my Father would be dressed in his Sunday suit.
Christ and Easter
Christ died for our sins on the cross. No one can have a greater love for one than to lay down their life for one. Christ is the reason we can know that our spirit or soul will be in heaven someday. Christ is risen. He has risen indeed. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
For lunch on Easter we would generally eat with our relatives. We would have a ham dinner, potatoes, vegetables, sweet potatoes, and dessert. While the adults would visit the kids would play board games. The youngest children would eat at the card table while the main table was reserved for the adults.
Easter and Children
Easter eggs would be hidden in the house for us youngsters to find. We would eat the candy inside of the plastic eggs. My Mother would help me decorate Easter eggs with various colors and designs on them. I had an Easter basket for years that my Grandmother gave me. I recently gave it to my young cousins children. I hope they will enjoy it as much as I did as a child. I had a stuffed Easter bunny and little baby chick toys.
Easter is a Time of Renewal
I eat out with friends or relatives after Easter Sunday worship now. Easter is a time of renewal and new beginnings. I enjoy tulips and Easter lilies and all of natures beauty each and everyday. I hope you and your family will make many memorable and Happy Easter memories. God Bless you and yours.
