Pintrest Fun

Welcome to Semana Santa...errrr...Holy Week...well, for some of us anyway.  Some of you are in parts of the world where the calendar is a bit different, right?  It's been a week around here, sorry for my lack of a brain!

Well, anyway, we are closing in on Resurrection Sunday.  I don't know about you, but we've been scurrying around here trying to get all our preparations done.  We are hosting Easter dinner at our house on Sunday, complete with a turkey because they were mega on sale here!  Like $9 USD instead of $60 USD around the winter holidays!  We also have a birthday on Monday and English Night with our college aged Costa Rican voluteers on Tuesday.  Yikes!!  That means a whole lot of cooking and creating.

But I enjoy the preparations, and I love the time it gives me to meditated on the season.
"You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation."
                                                                                                                        Romans 5:6-11

Now that, my friends, is something worth making a big deal about!!!  With turkey or ham or fish or whatever!  Let's celebrate!!!

This also seemed like a good time to roll out our brand new Missionary Moms' Companion Pintrest Page.  After the response from the Valentine's craft post, we got to thinking, a Pintrest board just for missionary moms would be a great idea!  You know, no cream of something soup, or fancy craft supplies, but more like things we can make with the sometimes limited resources we have living overseas.

I spent time today pinning some fun ideas for Easter just for you all.  

So hey, click on over to  MissionaryMoms on Pintrest and start following us! 


  1. Love the Pintrest page idea! I'm not on Pintrest, but I'll have to hop on over there just to check out what you've got posted. Yea for no "cream of ___" recipes and crafts with simple supplies!

    I hope you have a joyous Easter celebration! He is risen! We're in the other part of the world where we'll be celebrating on May 5th. SO late this year!

    1. Wow! That is really late Ashley!! And this year I feel like Easter is early here ...weird...just weird :) And hope you enjoy the pintrest stuff!
