I have thoroughly enjoyed looking through everyone's Easter Egg creations! I feel inspired for next year already! Recently, I have started experimenting with watercolor paints, so instead of dying actual eggs, I thought I would paint paper Easter eggs to decorate my new apartment with. I tied them to string to create a wall hanging that made this particularly white and boring wall a little more cheerful.
In reflecting on what we are celebrating this season and what God has done for us through the resurrection, I came across this verse: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." 1 Peter 1:3-5 I thought that the idea of being born again, or having new life, was appropriate with this theme of Easter eggs. Two words that really stuck out to me in this passage were hope and faith. In particular, I was encouraged that we have a living hope in Christ as He makes all things new in Him, and I was also reminded of the importance of having faith and trusting God for our salvation (it is nothing we can earn or accomplish in our own). To represent this idea in my project, I painted those words on two of the eggs.
I hope you have had a blessed Easter weekend!
