Happy Easter

happy easter eggs

“Happy Easter!” – this takes me back to my school days. I have happy memories of visiting the church attached to our school, reading the bible and generally enjoying the stories the nuns kept us happy with. I liked that we celebrated all festivals, thanks to the eclectic bunch we were.  Today, I nostalgically remembered how we used to sit in groups and paint eggs. I particularly enjoyed drawing cartoon characters on them – until recently I had a couple of eggshells with my artwork, but while dusting, they crumpled. Yes, literally fell to bits.

Happy Easter

 

“Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there.”  ~Clarence W. Hall

I had a good time browsing the web to see some painted eggs and here are some lovely ones:

 

Happy Easter

From urdufanz.com

Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal. It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising, to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown. ~Author unknown, as quoted in the Lewiston Tribune

Happy Easter

The stars shall fade away, the sun himself
Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years;
But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth,
Unhurt amid the war of elements,
The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds. ~Joseph Addison

    For me, Easter is about the Risen Christ. I am glad you found Hope to be present in your memories of Easter. He is the Hope.

    Dear Vidya –
    Growing up in Dallas, Texas, I have memories of easter egg hunting, painting and decorating eggs and of course the chocolate eggs. Thanks for sharing the beauty of this special day ~ and your photos are luscious. As you might guess, my favorite quote is -“All it takes is one bloom of hope to make a spiritual garden.”Terri Guillemets. Hope you had a magnificent Easter -with love, Fran

    Hi Vidya,

    I love your painted eggs! How fun. We had a low key Easter this year, but it was fun. I always loved the eggs hunts as a child and preparing them for my kids as well. Traditions, such as Easter create great memories. Thank you!
