Our church has a free breakfast buffet, then a service and Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. Then we usually meet at a restaurant and visit with family members there for the afternoon.

Our kids still like Easter baskets, having an egg hunt at home and we read the Bible passages about our wonderful Savior and how he has blessed us since we all came to know Him. emoticon

We are going to church on Easter Sunday morning for a special service. After that, we are having a big meal at our house and invited several family members over. Should be a nice time.

Our church starts the celebration on Palm Sunday by having our communion service in the evening. We do feet washing & then have a meal. This is our biggest communion service of the year. Easter is our churches largest outreach during the year. We get such a large turnout that we are unable to have services at the church; instead, we use the auditorium at the local middle school. I'm on the praise & worship team and there is a lot of prep time involved with that. I also help set up the flower display and then after services see that the flowers go to the correct families (all of the flowers are in memory/honor of someone). Since it's only going to be me & mom this year, we've decided not to cook dinner and we'll go to the firehouse for a fundraiser meal instead. When we get home "easter bunny" will come visit (you're never to old!!).

My church does a sunrise service. It is at 9am, we don't actual do sunrise, not many early risers. At 10 we do pancake breakfast and regular service at 10:45. The children have been working on songs to sing at Easter service for a couple of months now. Grandchildren will be going to the other grandparents for their Easter Egg hunt and lunch. This will be the first Easter that ham will not be on the table. Too much sodium and cholesterol. Since it will be just my husband and I it Easter Dinner will be a simple affair. Hope everyone has a very Blessed Day on this glorious day our Lord rose.

Easter is a very special time of year. It commemorates the day that Jesus rose. Why don't you all share what your plans are for Easter. Do your kids hunt eggs? Mine is a little too old for that. But the Easter Bunny still comes for him. Not exactly the way he use to though. Do you go to a Church Service? We do. Our Church is having a very special week of prayer. We went and prayed for an hour in the prayer room at 11:00 Monday night. They are having a 24/7 prayer week. We are having a special service Sunday, I look forward to it.

Share your thoughts about Easter here.

Be the best you can be at this very moment and you'll have no regrets.
