The chocolate Easter bunnies are a happy memory. Empty plastic eggs appear to have multiplied and hidden themselves in various corners of my house. The baskets are holding other treasures now, but one of their Easter goodies still retains its luster.
I bought the boys personalized CDs from Christianbook.com. #1 son received "Jesus Loves You" which rocks like a praise band. #2 son has "Fun Time Bible Stories" which giggles and marches and hums along at a toddler tempo. They've been in steady rotation ever since Easter Sunday. The guys are fascinated by hearing their names spoken and sung aloud.
"I love to spend time with you. It's my favorite thing.
J--- you make me want to sing.
Today is going to be great fun
Spending time with you." (From Fun Time Bible Stories)
One day, when I picked up DW from school, his teacher said she had a touching story to share. At lunchtime he'd turned to one of his buddies and said, "I got a CD for Easter. It says 'I'm precious in God's sight.'"
Worth every penny.
