Thankful for Easter

Every time I think of Easter, I'm filled with gratefulness-- grateful for the hope, life and purpose Jesus gives through His resurrection. The sacrificial love that He showed has changed my life completely and I'm so thankful to have a relationship with my Father in heaven. I started with the idea to take pictures which represent new life, in line with the Easter theme. Apart from roses, these beautiful soft blue and white speckled sugar-coated choc eggs would do the trick! The bird's nest is a real McCoy which my mother-in-law saved for my children when they were little. She reassured me it was a forsaken nest. It was so beautifully made I couldn't get myself to throw it out. In the end, I also borrowed my son's big vintage skeleton key and some of his ship models from his bedroom just to play around a bit, which had nothing to do with what I set out to do originally. You can see I did get carried away with the camera.................... hope you don't mind!Have a wonderful Easter everyone, and make sure you don't eat too much chocolate. Lol!

Yes and Amen! It is such a joy to share our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and celebrate His Love for us! Your pictures are beautiful, and love the eggs with the birds and nest. I have to confess, I probably would have eaten the eggs, but nevertheless, they are charming in your pictures. blessings, carrell

Your photos are so amazing! How delightful it would be to have a bouquet of the roses next to my bed...I can just smell the fragrance!

Lovely!
