It is the season of Easter. Our table is already set in a holiday theme to celebrate our son’s birthday on Palm Sunday. The menu is more St. Pat’s day than traditional Easter fare, at least this week. Our son and daughter-in-law were on spring break vacation when we usually have corn beef and cabbage, so we are having the Irish meal with chocolate birthday cake.
Although there is a fun nod to bunnies and eggs, we are well aware of the reason for this season in particular. There are also little lambs incorporated into my decorating to remind us of The Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. The one below is a favorite bean bag lamb from our children’s childhoods.
Next week our menu is more traditional–sugar cured ham, cinnamon rolls, side casseroles and strawberry cheesecake. The blessing is to remember Christ’s sacrifice with family around the table, breaking bread together. HAPPY EASTER!
