Easter and Eostre

We aren’t going to judge or condemn what anyone else does anything different – from decorating Easter eggs to full blown gift giving bonanzas. Each family needs to make their own decisions and their own traditions for holidays. This is just how our family has decided to observe this, what is to us, the most holy and amazing of all holidays.

Menu Monday APR 02 12 — Passover/Easter Week!

Posted by Hallee on Apr 2, 2012 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of April 2nd. This is Spring Break at our house, as well as Passover week and Easter week, so it’s a big “food” week. My husband, Gregg, is home for the first part of the week, and all of my kids are home, so we’re looking forward to an exciting, family-filled week! As far as desserts go, I am going to fill the cookie jar with Doodleroo’s Snickerdoodles We’re having a big pasta making party Tuesday, so I may make a Mascarpone Cheesecake with Vanilla Almond Crust to go with the pasta. We will also be making Resurrection Cookies on Saturday night.

Revisiting Eostre and Her Bunny

Posted by Hallee on Apr 19, 2011 in apologetics, Christian Faith, holiness, inspiration, Life, Parenting

Now here we are at Easter again. The very basis for our faith, for our lives, is that Jesus Christ paid the payment for our sins by suffering and dying on the cross, was buried in a tomb and resurrected on the third day, then He ascended into Heaven and sits at Father God’s right hand. That is the core of everything we believe, the reason we live the way we live, and our message to the world.

Posted by Hallee on Apr 18, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of April 18th. As far as desserts go, last week I thought I was cooking for Kaylee’s softball team, but that is this week. So, I’ll be making Delectable Deluxe Brownies Tuesday. We’re observing a Passover Seder on Wednesday, and I’m going to attempt a flour-free lemon cheesecake. The children will be making Resurrection Cookies Saturday night.

Ash Wednesday & the Beginning of Lent

Posted by Hallee on Mar 9, 2011 in Christian Faith, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, holiness, inspiration, Life

Ash Wednesday comes from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance. Traditionally, the ashes used are gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year’s Palm Sunday are burned and mixed with oil. In the Roman Catholic Church, Ash Wednesday is observed by fasting, abstinence from meat, and repentance. It is a day for contemplating one’s transgressions. Ash Wednesday is also the first day of Lent.

A Time of Rest

Posted by Hallee on Apr 13, 2010 in Family, Life, Parenting

Ten days ago, I left my home in Kentucky and headed south to Tallahassee, Florida. I got into town Thursday afternoon, visited friends, and went to another friend’s house for the evening. Friday morning I did some business at the courthouse, had lunch with friends, picked Kaylee up from school, had dinner with friends, and went back to a friend’s house for the evening. Saturday morning, we headed south toward the Florida Panhandle’s coast, picking up a friend of Kaylee’s on the way, and took up residence in a little beach house in Mexico Beach.

He is Risen!

Posted by Hallee on Apr 4, 2010 in Christian Faith

But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.”

Personal Thoughts on the Meanings of Easter

Posted by Gregg on Apr 4, 2010 in Christian Faith, Family, Parenting

This Easter Sunday, I will divert from the Creation debate to share with you 1) why I think that spiritual recoil had such an impact on our household, and 2) what I think we are going to do as the spiritual leaders of our family for ministry as a result.

Eostre & the Chocolate Bunny

The Easter holiday is barely removed from its pagan background. Easter even gets its name from the pagan goddess of spring, Eostre. The myth has it that she rescued a bird whose wings were frozen from the winter wind by turning it into a rabbit. Because the rabbit had once been a bird, it could lay eggs. And there you have the modern Easter Bunny and Easter eggs.
