Never too late
We are having an Easter Egg Hunt this Sunday – for adults only. Not that any of the goings on will be risqué, but we believe it’s never too late to have a happy childhood. So, we’ve invited five people to join us for the egg hunt and lunch. I’ll hide 120+ eggs around the living room, sunroom, hallways and such for these children to find.
And, it’s so much fun. In past years, I have made Easter baskets for everyone who is here, but I’m not able to do that this year although everyone will have a basket with a small stuffed animal in it. After all, they must have something in which to collect the eggs they find. Nor have I made any good shopping trips for fun stuff or useful stuff to put in the plastic eggs. So I’m collecting witty, wise, and inspirational sayings to put inside the eggs. A few will have candy, and some eggs will have tiny Easter ornaments to put on a white wire tree that I discovered last week at a yard sale. And, I might find some surprises for a few of the eggs.
We’ll laugh a lot, and we’ll share a meal preceded by a grace that reminds us of the significance (Christianwise) of this Easter Day.
I have the best part; I get to hide the eggs and laugh when they can’t see them and I can. Tee Hee.
We’ll go to Easter vigil on Saturday evening so that I’ll have time to hide the eggs. I won’t be doing much cooking – a simple meal.
Jesus wanted the children near him; so I figure if we can become as children for an hour or so, maybe we have a chance of being near Jesus on this special day.
