A good friend sent this idea to me today. What a wonderful thing for
the Christian family to do with the little ones on Easter morning to
show them the real meaning of Easter!
Recipe and Instructions for Easter Rolls that tell the true meaning of
Easter...which is the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This is an inspiring family project that can be done on Easter Morning.
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
Give each child one triangle of crescent rolls. Explain that the crescent roll
represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.
~ Read Matthew 27: 57-61
1. Give each child a marshmallow.
This represents Jesus.
2. Have him/her dip the marshmallow in melted butter and say that this
represents the oils of embalming.
3. Now dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar and say that
this represents the spices used to anoint the body.
4. Then wrap up the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll (not
like a typical crescent roll up, but bring the sides up and seal the
marshmallow inside.) As they do this, say that this represents the wrapping
of Jesus' body after death.
5. Place all in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Tell the child that
the oven represents the tomb--while you are waiting for the rolls to bake,
read Matthew 27:62-66.
6. Remove rolls from oven and let them cool slightly.
Now the children can then open their rolls (cloths) and discover that Jesus
is no longer there! HE IS RISEN!!!!
(The marshmallow has melted and the crescent roll is puffed up, but empty.)
~ Now read Matthew 28:1-10
Enjoy your warm rolls as you rejoice at the good news of Easter!
And then go and tell someone else the good news today!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter
Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.
Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
