Easter Blessings

My amaryllis came into full bloom today. A perfect day for new life!

He is Risen! He is Risen, indeed! I tried to teach my daughter this saying and how we celebrate Easter because Jesus is alive in Heaven. Pretty heavy stuff for a four year-old, but it's important to know none the less.
Today has been a day of blessings. The blessing of joy on the kids faces when they discovered what the Easter Bunny left. The blessing of praising and rejoicing our King. The blessing of togetherness as we dyed eggs and hunted them. And the blessing of decent weather so I could go a little camera crazy and take tons of photos. What a good day.

I guess I went a little overboard photographing eggs. But what can I say, they are so vibrant and they hold still!

These jewel toned eggs were achieved by dying brown eggs instead of white. I just love the deep colors.
Happy Easter!
