Until Resurrection Day
Every year, during Lent, I order several chocolate lambs
from Bromilow's, our local chocolatier.
I give a lamb and a lamb poem to each of our family members
because Easter is not about the bunny...
It's About the Lamb.
It's a better idea than spring
with jelly beans, mallows, and
it's far better than flowery
Mary Janes and brand new clothes,
a much better idea than bunnies
eggs painted pink, purple, blue…
This time let us give our sweet
an Easter gift that will ring true.
Let’s give a plush lamb, all
spotless and pure
and tell them Jesus is its name…
Tell them Jesus is the Hope of
and Easter's the reason He came.
Tell them God's Son is sinless
He's the unblemished Passover
tell them He died on Calvary's
to save sinners. He's the great I
Tell them that on the first
Lamb Jesus arose from the grave –
and that is why in their tiny
is the soft little lamb that you
Tell them Lord Jesus loves them
that He wants to be their Best
Their little lamb will remind
them of Him
after Resurrection Day ends.
Tell them chocolate bunnies,
bonnets, and beans
are okay, but not the best part –
the best part of Easter is Jesus,
Who came to live in their hearts!
