There’s a lot of fluff at Easter . . . especially on the back side of the Easter Bunny. No, I’m not here to hate on the Easter Bunny! Don’t worry, ole Long Ears and I are on good terms. But I don’t think Resurrection Sunday should all be bunny-butt fluff, if you know what I mean. Especially when it comes to our kids and what we are trying to instill within them. That’s what today’s post is about.
Some years back, I was listening to a sermon about hymns and the preacher likened today’s worship songs to cake, and the hymns of old to brussels sprouts. “There’s nothing wrong with cake” he said. “But we don’t sustain ourselves on cake. Every so often, we need to eat our brussels sprouts.” I like where he was going. Except . . . he could have picked a better vegetable! I think it’s safe to say that almost every child on the planet despises brussels sprouts. But children do not despise hymns! In fact, some of my earliest and fondest memories are sitting in my mom’s lap as she played hymn after hymn on the piano at our church. So . . . for today’s purposes, let’s swap out brussels with . . . say . . . carrots. Nutritious, delicious, and even bunny-friendly!
With all of this in mind, I have prepared a sort of carrot-cake Easter playlist to listen to with our kids this holiday weekend. I’ve even snapped a few pictures of our family’s favorite Easter hymns if you’re crazy cool and read music or play the piano.
Join me in dedicating ourselves to raising up our children in sound wisdom and strong morals and focusing all our holiday celebrations on what truly matters!
Let’s not let the heart of Easter pass our kids by in a wave of holiday hoopla!
Let’s read the Easter story to our children . . . maybe more than once!
Let’s grow a Resurrection Garden together.
And let’s fill our ears, hearts, and lungs with songs to our risen Savior!
