Some fun we had as a family to mark the occasion of The Resurrection of our Lord...
"He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. "
Matthew 28 verse 6
We made a ressurection garden...
(a month later it is still looking lovely and a constant reminder that HE LIVES)
base from a large pot plant
a small terracotta pot (tomb)
little pieces of wood tied together with string to make the crosses
a tray of seedlings from the nursery
Then we made a whole bunch of stained glass sun catchers, for our windows and for the windows of our loved ones...
Tissues paper - various colours
Contact (sticky plastic!)
I cut out the shape of the design in the black cardboard...then placed it down onto the contact...my knight and his cute sister then stuck the little squares of tissue paper all over to cover.
I then stuck another piece of contact over that to seal the whole sun catcher...
A fun craft and very eye catching window display ;-)
... and last but not least....
He is Risen cupcakes...
this cake recipe
chocolate coated pretzels
chocolate buttons (the stone that was rolled away!)
cherries (symbolizing His blood shed)
melted chocolate to hold crosses together
The crosses were made by my very versatile and creative other half...
My knight decorated the cupcakes.
They were enjoyed with family after a Ressurection Sunday lunch...
"And Jesus Christ our Lord was shown to be the Son of God when God powerfully raised him from the dead by means of the Holy Spirit. Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name."
