Saturday morning we made "Resurrection Rolls" with our good friends Will and Caitlin and baby Henry (and unfortunately forgot to take pictures). But funny story...so to make the resurrection rolls, you roll a marshmallow (representing Jesus' body wrapped in a linen cloth) in cinnamon (representing the burial spices) and wrap it inside a crescent roll (the tomb). When you bake it, the marshmallow melts away inside the roll so that when you open up the tomb, Jesus' body isn't there anymore! Sounds great, right? Well, try telling that to a 2- and 4-year-old who were expecting to get to eat a marshmallow inside their breakfast. My girls were all but crying because the tomb was empty. But don't worry, we saved the day and gave them another marshmallow to eat alongside their resurrection roll. Crisis averted.
And here we are on Sunday afternoon at the Thompson's house (after Sunrise service, church-wide breakfast, LifeGroups, and worship service - what a day)!
He is risen, indeed!
