I was looking for an Easter video to share with everyone today. When I found this it seemed appropriate for a blog.
The part of the story where Judas denies Jesus still sends goose bumps through me even after hearing it so many times (I went to a Catholic school so I heard it a lot). It always stops me in my tracks and makes me think about my own faith. I don’t know if I would take the money to betray him, but I am not sure how I would have reacted to seeing all of that. The only thing I do know is that I seriously hate crowds so I would probably try to not be anywhere near.
This weekend we plan to have a quiet one but I know I will be pondering the Easter story.
I love me a pretty easter printable and here is one I had to share with you from Tiny Me. This is the woodland range but they also have loopy and very vibrant.
A few years ago I bought my nephew and nieces some personalised canvas art for their rooms. They were so cute and worked well as a Christmas present – assuming you also purchase said child a toy to play with.
PS …. Richard and I have been married for 6 months today. It seems both more recent and more distant than that, wibbly wobbly timey whimey I say.
I’m back with my another Etsy Treasury List for the month (I couldn’t resist) and this time I’ve found a bunch of Easter goodies to share with you.
Without meaning too I ended up with a bit of a bunny theme but to be honest it was hard to find things that you could have in your home that didn’t look cheap. I do love the cushions though and the idea of having a couple of cushion covers you bring out at this time of year.
Easter seems crazy early this year and it will be here really soon. I always feel that Easter is one of the markers of time each year, it always feels like a big chunk is gone by Easter which in a way is true.
Easter does of course have a more serious side and is a time of reflection for many of us about Jesus’ sacrifice. Certainly it is for me.
The boss gave us an early mark Thursday so we decided to head over to the Easter Show. Even though it was Day 1 of the show it probably turned out to be the best day to be there. Very few cues but still enough people around to get that crowd vibe that is such a huge factor to enjoying events like this.
We caught the train out. It’s part of the ticket price so we figured it was a good idea and it was. Possibly because the cues were small it was a breeze to get from Chatswood to Olympic Park. Some very clever decisions were made at Olympic Park Station making it easy to get off a train and into the show and then back home again.
One of the things that I most wanted to do was eat a Pluto Pup (also known as a Dagwood Dog) with ketchup. Even though I know that they are inately disgusting I had to have one – I shouldn’t have bothered. For my sanity I have to believe that it was cooked, but the temperature I think it came out of the fridge before being served.
