Easter Eggs

Didn't you always love Easter egg hunts as a kid? They were always super exciting and fun to race your friends t find how many sweet treats you can find hidden in tree branches, under rocks, or in the creek. I miss those days. 

It's cool how now Disney and Pixar put a bunch of "Easter eggs" hidden throughout their videos. Whenever there's a boring part, or we've seen the movie too many times, our family searches for these Easter eggs. Whether it's a hidden Mickey or Buzz Lightyear, we always get super excited when we find them. 

Sometimes our life seems dull. Boring. Overdone and routine and going through the motions. How are we supposed to enjoy life when we are in this drought? What if we searched for the hidden Easter eggs?

What are some little things that make life brighter? How have you seen God's hand in your life today?

I think he gives us more blessings than we could ever imagine. As you look throughout the day, maybe make it a goal to find as many hidden Easter eggs and treats as you can. If you feel like nothing is going your way (or the Easter eggs are too high in the tree), then make some Easter eggs for other people. I personally love making little 2 inch "warm fuzzy books" for people with each page having a picture or sticker and a word telling them how much I care about them. It's super sweet and they love it because it looks like it takes effort and it's thoughtful, but it's not too hard to make. Or writing notes and leaving them in special places for people. Or smiling at them in the hallway. 

Believe it or not, as you create Easter eggs for others, you will be doubly creating extra for yourself! Take every opportunity for good! Look for the tender mercies God has placed in your life! You never know how much brighter you could be!

  1. How does one make one of these 'warm fuzzy books,' you say? They sound kinda cool. ;) I like the idea of looking for Easter eggs in my life,a and I think that I'll go out and try it now!

    1. To make a warm fuzzy book, you take a full sheet of paper and fold it into eighths or sixteenths, depending on what size you want. The rip on these folds (you could cut, but the whole idea of ripping is so that the edges can be fuzzy). Fold each piece in half, put them together, and staple them! Walaa! (How do you spell that word?! ;) the pages should have a fuzzy side, and by reading the words they feel warm. Ya know, cheesy, but awesome. My friend made one for me and I just love it! That was two years ago, and I still have it in my locker for when I need some comfort.

    2. J'adore parler français! :D
