Last week, I tried to explain to Mary Margaret the meaning of Easter. Yes, I want her to enjoy the Easter Bunny and all the fun in hiding the eggs, but I also want her to understand the true meaning behind Easter.
Conversation goes as follows:
ME: You know MM, Easter is not just about the Easter Bunny and eggs, it is about Jesus. He died and after 3 days, he rose to be with God in heaven. That's why we celebrate Easter. When Jesus rose from the dead, it is called the Resurrection.
Do you understand? Have any questions?
MM: No Mama. I get it.
Later on that day, I tried to get her to talk about it. First she said that Jesus was on "restriction" when He went to heaven. No MM, not so much.
So I tried to revisit the story.
After her Daddy arrived home, I was going to get MM to "show out" for him. I asked her again about Easter and then she answered me. Oh she answered all right.
She determined that Easter was celebrated because of the "Reservations"!
Her Daddy and I got a big kick out of it.
I am thankful for my reservations, aren't you?
Happy Easter to you all!
