The Atonement

I hope you have had a blessed Easter.  This amazing occasion is a time, for me, of thinking over what it really means, what God did for us through Jesus Christ. It is a time to marvel and stand in awe and gratitude.

If you have ever wondered what it is really all about, there is a website that explains The Atonement better than anywhere I’ve read it or heard it discussed. Go to The Threshing Floor to read it for yourself.

Easter.crossToday has been a busy family day. Sixteen of us met at Dad’s to share a delicious meal together, a meal to which there were many contributions so that one or two people don’t have to do the whole thing. The youngest in attendance is almost 10, the oldest is almost 90. It used to be the females outnumbered the males, but it’s now the other way around – today girls 6, guys 10. As you can imagine, there is always a lot of food prepared – and eaten, but always there are some leftovers to divide up. 

Do you have family events to enjoy? What does Easter mean to you?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. That sounds like a beautiful Easter, Lynn. After church on Easter morning we had two small family Easter gatherings this year. I went to the assisted living home where my mom lives and had the privilege of feeding her a bounteous ham dinner. She eats well, although she cannot use her hands, so cannot feed herself. My dad was there with us, so it was a fun family celebration. Then I went home and fixed a ham dinner for my husband and his father. That was a fun time, too. After the meal we watched several movies about the crucifixion, including Bill O’Reilly’s Killing Jesus. A lovely Easter indeed!!

  2. Sounds like you had a special Easter, Lynn. I was blessed to be with my mom at the nursing home in Alberta for Easter this year. I also saw all of my grandchildren and great grandchildren which was fun. No big dinner but a lovely visit. We woke up to snow which I was not prepared for. Back in Spain with hubby now.

    • How wonderful for you, Darlene! Good to hear from you. What an enjoyable visit you must have had. You have great-grandchildren, too?

      Snow? Not snow! 😉 We will likely be a few more weeks seeing the rest of our snow disappearing. Do you get much snow where you are in Spain?

  3. No snow in Spain, at least not where we are. They do get snow in the mountains I think.
