Easter Dresses

We decorated the cross with flowers
& put it outside after worship.
Yesterday morning I joined with my church family to celebrate Easter Sunday. Part of our celebrations involved decorating a cross with beautiful, sweet smelling flowers....daffodils, irises, tulips and roses  adorned the cross, and transformed it from a symbol of suffering to a symbol of hope. Sitting wide eyed and curious were two little girls that I had brought to worship that day. If you were part of our congregation yesterday morning, it would have been easy for you to spot Romana and Lucita...they were the only little girls not wearing pretty Easter dresses. Romana and Lucita do not own pretty dresses; they have never been on an Easter egg hunt; they have never been to church before; they have never seen a beautiful cross decorated with flowers; they have never been met by so much love...and they have never heard of a man called Jesus. Friends...this is the incredible opportunity that is before us to witness! When we bring a new child to our church, we are bringing them to Christ. Who will you bring this week?
