We gave out about 120 of these little Peep bunnies attached to invitations to our Community Egg Hunt and to Easter Sunday services. They went to all of our children's outreach efforts; like our preschool, after school and the elementary school Kidz Club. It struck me as quite appropriate as I thought about how many of these children have just been introduced to Jesus through these programs. They all knew about that hippity, hoppity egg hiding Easter bunny, but a great percentage did not know about God's great love for them. They do now!
Author Timothy Paul Jones tells the story of taking his adopted daughter to Disney World. I won’t ruin it for you, but for years she was denied going by her original adoptive parents. When she finally experienced the Magic Kingdom, here was her response:
“Daddy, I finally got to go to Disney World. But it wasn’t because I was good; it’s because I’m yours.”
