The great Easter truth is not that we are to live newly after death - that is not the great thing - but that...we are to, and may, live nobly now because we are to live forever. ~Phillips Brooks
In a couple of weeks from now we will all be celebrating Easter. So the period of Lent is almost over. There is still a little time however for you to be involved in doing something special during this unique reflective time of the year. In her Reception class my daughter has been encouraged to complete good deeds and kind tasks during the period of lent rather than focus on giving something up (like chocolate which so often people seem to do. They then binge on Easter Sunday with choc eggs. Now tell me what is the point of that!! You must read here for more info about An Ethical Easter). I have really enjoyed watching her blossom and grow and perform kind deeds for us here at home. Yes, sometimes she needs to be reminded but she is still growing and learning about life.
I have also been inspired by this concept and thought it might be nice if a little baby bunny would hop into your door to celebrate the New Life which Easter represents. In order for you to receive your little bunny you simply need to do something unique and special which will surprise another and cause them to feel loved and appreciated. When you have completed this task please share with us the surprise your recipient received by leaving a comment here. On Easter Sunday Ess and I will read through all the kind deeds which have been performed and choose a winner for a precious bunny Easter Giveaway.
If you haven't yet read the story of some of the kind deeds in our home have a look here for Part I, II, III and Finale.
Wishing you a meaningful preparation for Easter time.
