THE SOLDIERS PRAYER
The Soldier stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the Saints had often trod.
Today is not about war it is about peace.

Easter Eggs are traditionally eaten on Easter Sunday with the Easter Bunny doing his rounds on Easter Saturday night after all the good children have gone off to the land of nod. Well maybe that is wishful thinking with the land of nod stuff (I'm dreaming again).
Then again I talked to soldier boy on the phone tonight he asked me if Easter Bunny would still be coming to him this year!! I mean can you believe it??
Lastly if you are looking for activities to do with your children over Easter look at this.

Easter commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ following his death. It is the most significant event of the christian calender.
On Good Friday, Jesus was executed by crucifixion. His body was taken down from the cross and buried in a cave. The tomb was guarded and an enormous stone was put over the entrance, so no one could steal the body.
On the following Sunday, some women visited the grave and found that the stone had been moved and the tomb was empty. Jesus was seen that day and for days afterwards by lots of people. His followers realised that God had raised Jesus from the dead.
Easter celebrates the promise of life in the face of death. At Easter we must also celebrate peace & forgiveness.
Now is also a good time for us to think about suffering, injustice & hardship. A very good thing for us to reflect on in the current times. These things are good for us all to reflect on whether we are a christian or not it is what the world is calling us to do at this very time.
Have a great day
