It all started with the stuffing of the eggs. The little girls and I were putting chocolate treats in each one. But we needed more plastic eggs to fill. Because we wanted the four siblings, the ones still in the children’s department at church, to each take two dozen eggs.
I’d seen the bunny and the little chick in a magazine. What a sweet and simple Easter bag – instead of a basket. A pink bunny for the eldest girl. And a chick for the, then, youngest boy. Colored in crayon on a white, paper sack.
A paper Easter. Simple. On this Monday we look forward to a simple Easter to focus on Him.
