Making Easter Memories

easter memories

Every Easter Sunday we would gather at Mama’s to celebrate our Risen Savior. Just outside her carport to the right was the most beautiful blue hydrangea bush brimming with blossoms. All the little boy and girl cousins would quickly run by them in a game of chase or hide-and-seek. Yet, every time I pass hydrangeas in the supermarket my mind is flooded with visions of the beautiful blue flowers of childhood Easters many years ago.

My own mother, perhaps remembering the women traveling early to anoint the Savior, would spend many hours sewing my sister and I beautiful smocked Easter dresses. Her loving stitches graced many smocked dresses that my little girl wears as she grows and as my sweet niece and her soon to be little sister will wear in like fashion.

What Easter memories are we sowing into our children and heritage? When they are grown and making a new home of their own, what will they remember of their childhood Easter’s?

As Easter is quickly approaching and your preparations are underway, here are a few posts to help you plan the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection:

No matter the color of hydrangeas on my table this Easter, in my heart are forever memories of blue.
