What are some of your favorite Easter traditions?
I’ll get us started …
Easter is one of my favorite holidays because of the message of hope and freedom attached to it. Knowing that Jesus died on the cross for our sins but then defeated death through His resurrection giving us life, forgiveness, and the reconciliation to God that we could never have earned or deserved … so powerful! Easter is certainly a reason to celebrate and rejoice, and that we do!
Since Steve and I rarely get to be with our families during Easter, we love to take it as an opportunity to open up our home to others who can’t be with their families either. After attending Easter service at our church, I make a huge feast of ham, candied yams, egg noodles in ham broth, rolls, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, and some yummy desserts, which is reminiscent of the feasts my mom made growing up. We bust out the china and crystal, like Steve grew up with his family doing, and we host a big afternoon of fellowship.
It always makes me think of the Last Supper, and how Jesus valued fellowship and relationships. I love getting to serve others and let them know they are loved. Holidays, like Easter, are a wonderful opportunity to reach out in love and kindness and open our hearts and homes.
Okay, it’s your turn!
