Kourey came home from school with six bright plastic eggs in a gold spray-painted half of an egg carton. She was so excited to tell me what the eggs were for that she couldn’t wait to get home, even though I had been warned about Egg 2 and told her to please not open the eggs in the car.
As soon as she got home, she gathered the family around her to tell about the eggs and the meanings of their contents. She was so excited that she asked to video the third telling. And here it is.
She shares a few different details each time, as she is truly sharing a story versus reciting a lesson, but there is simplicity in the story from these six.
Egg 1 – a flower, to remind us that God created every part of earth, and all the beauty.
Egg 2 – dirt, to represent how sin makes us dirty, and apart from God
Egg 3 – a cross, to show how Christ came to clean us from that sin by dying on the cross
Egg 4 – a rock, to symbolize the boulder rolled back from the tomb where Jesus was buried
Egg 5 – nothing, to illustrate how the tomb was not only open, but empty, because Christ is not dead; he arose
Egg 6 – a mirrored heart gem, to reflect the reason God would do all that – His precious love for me
Happy Easter from the Dohls.
