What does Easter mean to you?

I love cute little bunnies, chicks and butterflies, everything that says "spring" and celebrates new life.  But I have to share with you that we never did the "Easter Bunny" thing with our kids.  Actually we never did any of the make believe icons like the tooth fairy or Santa Claus either.  However we did let your children know that other families did like to play these make believe games with their children and did teach them they should have respect and not spoil that for other children, if that's what their family chose to do.  We don't judge others for making that decision.  I think sometimes people are just raised a certain way and generation to generation pass down the traditions without even considering there may be another option. 

So today I'm sharing with you, not because I judge you or how you choose to raise your children, but becuase I want you to know there are other options.  When I have shared this with other's over the years, I know some of them didn't get that.  But I grew up in a home that did have Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the tooth fairy.  And never once did my mother share with me the real reason these holidays are celebrated.  After I was saved, I actually regretted that she had not.  She grew up in a Christian home, so she knew.  And as an adult, I can't acutally remember a time when I really believed in any of them.  So was it really worth it??  My husband and I decided it was not.  We celebrated the holidays, but we chose to tell our children the real reason we did so.  We did fun acivities as well, so they had just as much fun as the other kids.  My children don't feel like they missed out on anything. 
Easter is a holiday that we celebrate because our Lord and Savior, Jesus died on the cross, that we might be saved, reconcilled with God, so that we can spend eternity with Him.  So as Easter approaches, I am so thankful for a holiday that reminds us that we have so much to be thankful for, but nothing greater than this.
Have a very blessed day!!


Project Details

Stamps : discontinued set by Mark's Finest Papers,  but there are lots of floral options that would work.  Robyn's Fetish has a Lily digital stamp that would work great and is marked down HERE
 And here is a link to some of her other Easter digi's HERE.  The bible with the Lily is very pretty. 
Here is my card using that image

For the Lily's on the top card, I highlighted area's with a yellow Copic, I think Y11, and they added adhesive using by 2-Way glue pen and sprinkled with clear glitter.
