Easter Centerpiece

It's that time of year we love so much - coloring eggs, pulling out the spring tablecloths and linens...Beatrix Potter (does anyone else think, "Trix are for kids" when you see her name?) and chocolate bunnies. I was watching Martha Stewart recently and saw a fun idea. I've planted grass seed in a basket that I hope will be full of lovely tall grass by Friday. So far...it's just dirt.

I plan on blowing some eggs to have the empty shells and coloring them one afternoon soon. JJ's still away, so Max will have to help. It should be interesting. I'll let him pick the colors.

When we're all finished and it looks lovely in our dining room, I'll post a photo for you. Right now though ~ like I said ~ it's just dirt.

Somehow, I think that may be similar to what God thinks when He looks at me. "She's got promise, once she grows a bit..."

That's perfect with my memory verse...

Siesta Scripture Memory: Verse 7

The ones who do the planting
or watering aren't important,

but God is important
because he is the one
who makes the seed grow.

1 Corinthians 3:7 NLT

Praying that God provides the increase!
