I have been really good. Really really good.
Normally: (in the past) I would have bought malted Easter eggs a few weeks before Easter and eaten them all by Easter morning, without giving any to my kids, who don't really care for them. Since I am avoiding wheat, I didn't think they would be good anyway, so I did not buy them.
I bought peeps. I made a "peep" show with my husband for a contest at work. The theme we chose was the Annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
My husband folded tiny newspaper hats for the peeps, and I covered a miniature plastic bunny with foil to place in the tiny Easter basket.
So we have eaten a few of the peeps, and a few of the dark chocolate eggs... giving the rest to my sons. soon. later today.
Then I gave my husband a white cookie crunch solid bunny - 2.5 oz. and each of us one Russell Stover dark chocolate egg. Made in USA.
While he sleeps, the ham and veggies are cooking in the oven. With our lunch (peanut butter sandwich for him, and peanut butter on one slice of gluten free raisin toast for me with a glass of milk), he broke open his bunny. I asked if I could just have a nibble, so I wouldn't feel "deprived" as opposed to depraved. He took the ears. The smallest part left was the head, as the tail was rather blended into the body. So I ate the head. Now, the bunny can't hear us, or see us, to see us make him disappear. Actually, I found it way too sweet, and I am sure I will just leave it behind. Literally. Since all that is left is its body and behind. How do I weigh/measure the invisible head? It was about 1/8th of the total bunny, so I think I did pretty good.
As for Easter, it's really not about the bunny.
It is a deeper truth that builds my faith and is the rock for my life.
Hallelujah! May today be blessed for each of you.
Praise God! He Lives!
