How was your Easter?

Susan M - March 23, 2008

On the way home from church I told my husband I’d asked for Lamb of God at the church library, but they only had it on VHS, and I was pretty sure our VCR was broken and/or thrown away.

My son was confused. He couldn’t figure out why I was asking the church librarian for some Lamb of God.

We’re having a quiet afternoon at home, and since we don’t have a copy of Lamb of God, we might watch Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ. Or possibly Amazing Grace.

Happy Easter!


  1. Church was fabulous –great talks and music about Christ.

    This afteroon we watched some church videos; and talked at length about the Resurrection. Well, as long as a 6, 5, 3 and 1 year old can give.

    I did make them read my blog post about the Savior. They liked the pictures and recognized the songs.

    Candy and baskets were yesterday; the rest of the candy, I believe, was eaten today.

    Good Easter!

  2. Our easter was not too bad, we started with our traditional Easter morning surprises (no Easter Bunny here) which the kids loved. We bought them Webkinz this year rather than candy or chocolate.

    Then we went to church and the amount of music in the service really touched me a lot.

    Otherwise it was a normal sunday with six young kids.

    A lot of people would say, “No.”

    Easter was good.

  6. Easter was great, except for church. We had no talks on any easter subject. They were all on Missionary work, with easter songs for the opening and closing. Not one lesson on easter was done. I thought that was kind of strange.

  7. We meet for church on Fridays where I live. I was the closing speaker and since it was so amazing to be meeting on good friday, I spoke about all the events leading up to the atonement. We then had a ward potluck.

    On Easter morning itself, my kids shot up to collect their Easter baskets while my husband and I ran around getting ready for work. My kids broke a little piece of my heart when they cheerfully noted that the best thing about having Easter in Arabia is getting to eat their candy and not have to break it up by getting ready for church!

    Then, worked all day, watched Singin’ in the Rain, and dragged everyone to another potluck at a friend’s house.

    Totally anticlimactic!

  8. Church was awesome for us. It was in an outdoor ampitheater and it was about 90 degrees. But that didn’t deter anyone. We saw about 100 people make first time decisions to follow Jesus which was so encouraging and uplifting.
