Easter is the most powerful of Christian observances. Resurrection Sunday is full of hope and celebration! After a sunrise church service our children would come home to discover chocolate eggs placed under pillows, on window sills and in the cereal box. As the children grew scavenger hunts with prizes of clothing items and books became part of the tradition along with solid milk chocolate bunnies. It is the choice of Fair Trade chocolate which I believe is so important.
Your heart started beating before anyone knew you were conceived. It is the first internal organ to be formed and starts beating 16 days after conception. A human heart will beat some three billion times over an average lifespan. Amazing. No wonder the heart is the international symbol for love. The heart is also the most popular image associated with Valentine’s Day.
The spirit of Christmas can be found in a gift purchased through the World Vision Gift Catalogue. My blog Sheep, Chickens and Bees tells the story of how our family started giving these thoughtful and meaningful presents. I have created a goat-themed gift basket which is a luxurious present that also changes lives!
