Spring break and Easter in the same week. I spent last week racing around to get the goodies for the boys' Easter baskets because I knew I wouldn’t be seeing any alone time this week.
My mom always made Easter baskets like a mini Christmas, so of course I have to follow in her footsteps because I loved it as a kid. Also, I can’t forget those fantastic plastic eggs that are so much fun to cram candy in for the all important Easter Egg Hunt. One thing we've incorporated from my husband’s family is putting money in the eggs. Not much...just some pocket change and then a “Golden Egg” that has a $5 bill in it. But back to the plastic eggs...is it me or do those things multiply? They are like Christmas lights--you never think you have enough so you buy new ones and then find the mother load from last year. Even if I take the candy and leave the eggs at egg hunts we attend I still have enough plastic eggs to stock the …

Lessons learned from a local church on Easter Sunday.
Easter morning I attended a church service at a church I had not been to before, Unity North Atlanta Church on Sandy Plains Road. At the front of the church was a large cross covered with flowers. Toward the end of the service, the pastor invited everyone to come take a flower off the cross to represent our commitment to getting off the cross. Christianity is not about hate or hurting others or holding on for dear life. It’s about trusting, forgiving, letting go and letting God. As I took a flower off the cross and sat down with my little flower, I felt weight lift off me. My heart was overflowing with trust, with forgiveness of myself and others and with inner peace and love. The pastor asked us to daily recommit ourselves to getting off …

The annual Northeast Cobb Community Egg Drop was held at Sprayberry High School where thousands of children gathered Easter eggs dropped from a helicopter. Children enjoyed face painting, pictures with the Easter Bunny, inflatables and more. Piedmont Church sponsored this special event for the community.
A mystery revealed in the Resurrection of Christ!
All ancient cultures sought to connect their lives with the natural events they experienced. Hence, ancient peoples like the Greeks saw springtime as a time of renewal and regeneration and sought to explain its existence by mythological stories. The story of Demeter and Persephone, for example, was the result of such an effort. The ancient Hebrews, however, connected springtime with their liberation from Egyptian slavery, a historical event. The feast of the Passover is a remembrance of God’s gift of freedom to the Hebrew people as He brings them out of 400 years of oppressive slavery. That event occurred during the spring at a specific time and was celebrated every year on the 15th day of the Jewish month Nissan. It just so happened that …
