Христос Воскрес! Christ is Risen!

Our wonderful day, in more pictures than words, because I'm tired. . . happily tired:

They got up to the sound of Easter music and found all the candles lit! We started reading:
HE IS GOD! He cannot stay dead. HE IS ALIVE. The true Glory of God shines in the world. The Light has won! The Eternal Light! The Bright Morning Star! The Light of the World!

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay."
And then we hurried on to the kitchen to see. . .

The empty tomb!
We finished our reading there.

Then it was time for breakfast: red eggs and cake!

Raia didn't want to eat hers, because it was so pretty.

Jaan read his for us.

"Христос воскрес!"

Asya wanted to ponder a little more before church.

Ready to go!

So that you can see the beautiful backdrop
Didn't the youth do a wonderful job? This is the prettiest it's ever been!

Most of the children

Everyone from my little Sunday school (except Asya) recited a poem.

Then they sang (Asya, too!).

After church, naps went so long that we would have been late to the evening service, so we went for a beautiful walk instead.

Jaan the Mountain Climber

Воистину воскрес! He is risen indeed!

Yes, the pictures are very beautiful! It looks like it was a wonderful day! Ours was, too, beginning with preparations for our Easter dinner company, our very moving service with Scriptures from all over the NT about the resurrection, to our 9 guests and our gathering lasting until after 7 PM!! It was so nice! Love to each of y'all!!

I'm with Raia - I wouldn't have wanted to eat the eggs either. They are pretty indeed.

What a wonderful Easter you all have had.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I am excited that you've started MEP. We find it an excellent programme in concert with our AO CM curriculum. I am sure you will as well.
