Happy Easter

Childhood Easters bring back the best memories:

1969
1971

Spring Easter finery worn to church regardless of how cold it was.

Around 1966

Easter baskets hidden, found, overflowing with colored eggs and sweets.

Late 1960s

Especially memorable was the year that mom made Buckeye Ball eggs and we strategically arranged them behind the traditional bunny cake. (I only say we so I don’t have to take the blame entirely on myself).

(For those of you not familiar with Buckeye balls, they are peanut butter and confectioners sugar on the inside and dipped in chocolate). When shaped as a small egg they resemble… enough said.

But even with the Easter finery, bunny, and sugar high from the candy, church and family was the highlight of the day.

The soaring, majestic organ notes of “Christ the Lord is Risen Today, Alleluia!” and “Up From the Grave He Arose!”

The greeting, “He is Risen!” and response “He is Risen Indeed!”

The promise that because Christ took the sins of the world upon himself and rose from the dead three days later, we too will conquer death if we believe.

Easter is the pivotal holiday. Every other holiday means nothing without the promise of the resurrection.

Happy Easter!

He is Risen!

    Sweet post! While I tend to stay away from those decadent Buckeyes to keep my sugars under control, I can still appreciate this sweet combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Your photos remind me of Easter when I was a young lad. Nearly every Easter my three brothers and I endured a quick photo while we were dressed for church, lined up from oldest to youngest (birth years of 1956, 1956, 1958, and 1960). The double 1956 is not a typo. God’s peace!
