Pascha



Yesterday we celebrated Pascha!  So, Christ is Risen!  We had a midnight church service and all 6 of us went.  We went to my mom's house for dinner yesterday.  Bright Monday Liturgy this morning.  Do you know the story of the RED egg?  Mary Magdalene, who was equal to the Apostles, wanted to spread the news of Christ's Resurrection.  Due to her status as a Roman patrician, she was able to get an audience with the emperor, Tiberius Caesar. The emperor scoffed, “How could a man rise from the dead? It’s as impossible as this white egg turning red!” Immediately, the egg turned a brilliant red color. Many icons of St. Mary Magdalene show her with a red egg.  And so, we color eggs with yellow onion skins boiled in water.  
Our youngest is officially 2 and a half!  He's still breastfeeding.  I am trying to get him to drink more cow's milk, but he begs and cries for mama milk several times a day.  We've been getting local Snowville Creamery milk, which is nice.  I'm thankful I've been able to breastfeed.  
Have a great week!

Your breads and eggs are beautiful. People at our parish did the onion skin method this year - I love that deep red color!

In truth He is risen!
