Easter is here!!

Hi there!

It is now April :) The feeling of spring is in the air, the flowers are starting to appear and the grass is slowly turning green.

I love this time of year :) It is such a 'new' feeling. That is something like why we celebrate Easter, isn't it? At Easter, we remember the sacrifice Jesus made. How He gave up his life for us. Because of Jesus and His death and resurrection, we can be made new and have our sins forgiven. I think it's wonderful that we celebrate Jesus' sacrifice in the spring, when everything is 'new'. Just like how Jesus can transform our lives.

Remember boys and girls, Easter is not all about an Easter egg hunt and getting chocolate. I mean, I love chocolate too, BUT, it's important to remember WHY we celebrate Easter! Take time to think about how much Jesus loves us and that we can give our lives to Him.

Also, remember the Joykids Easter special is tomorrow! Yipee :) We'll be talking about the life of Jesus and telling the story of His death and resurrection.

Feel free to contact us with any questions at contactjoykids@aol.com!

Thanks :)
