Southern Easter

It is hard to believe it has been so long since I last posted!  So many things have kept me busy and I can not wait to share, but for today I want to look back on a lovely Easter.


We hold dear our Easter traditions in the South.


Easter Sunday in a southern church.
It is a day for faith, worship, and remembrance.
We remember the promise God fulfilled for His chosen.
We honor this most important gift God gave His children.


Easter lilies bloom where the old home place once stood.
Little boys with their fresh Easter Sunday haircuts.
Bouquets of daffodils upon the dinner table.
Holding a little gloved hand.
The joy of a new Easter dress.
The table laden with wafer-thin bone china and old coin silver.
Mommas smiling as their babies gather brightly colored eggs.
Little old southern ladies, dressed like bright flowers.
Spring bonnets on babies.
Biscuit-filled cheeks.
It is a time to hold our families close and celebrate the gift of life, resurrection and salvation.
What a friend we have in Jesus.
