I experienced my first Maundy Thursday service last night (I didn't grow up going to them) and it was an amazing reminder of what Jesus Christ did for US. We tend to get caught up in our daily grind and forget about the bigger picture called "LIFE", "SALVATION", and "ETERNITY". I was choking back the tears the entire time just meditating on how it might have felt for Jesus, in terrible pain, when he uttered the words, "it is finished." It's so much to take in and comprehend. I'm so thankful our freedom allows us to worship however we feel fit and that we are able to celebrate Easter and Jesus' Resurrection!
Ok, now to the less serious stuff :)
I've been pinning away on pinterest and I've found some pretty exciting ways to decorate eggs. Man, people never cease to amaze me in there inventive, creative ways of making traditional things new and fresh! If you are planning on decorating eggs this weekend, consider one of these cool alternatives to dye and vinegar…
I actually might try this one if I can find some cheap silk… look how amazing these are!
Did you just say "shaving cream"? (Note: I wouldn't recommend consuming these if you are using hard boiled eggs)
If you enjoy the element of surprise, I suggest you try this technique…
These are so different and awesome:
And if you're not into the messy dye process, this one might be for you (except I would use plastic eggs instead of blowing out real eggs)
And for you artsy fartsy folk like me…
This one would be great for the kids… I would use dot stickers or easter stickers instead of punching holes out of contact paper, but that's just me being lazy :) Aren't these adorable?
And here's your finale… pencil shavings!!! What? Can you say, gorgeous?
Hope you all have a happy Easter! Have fun decorating your eggs and please share your creativity… I'd love to see what you all come up with!
