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! God has done some miraculous things through our teachers, staff and counselors. Kids, and entire families, are learning some life-changing truths. They now have heard that beyond the silly fun of bunnies and eggs there is God's great love. There is the willing sacrifice of the innocent Christ for our wrongs. Now they know that Easter contains the one thing that is needed for every human life: Hope - the hope we find in the resurrection of Jesus Christ!
So, yep, it's so true this Easter and every day! NoBunny loves you like Jesus! Happy "Hope" Day! Happy Spring! Let this be a season of renewal and new growth in your mind, heart and spirit!
God Bless You,
