Easter in Mississippi is a wonderful time. Like many places in the south it is filled with crosses, Easter eggs, and spring flowers in the garden. Sunrise services dominate Easter morning as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Renewal and redemption fill our hearts as we sing hymns old and new. All of the people are excited to announce that “He is risen! ” After the sun rises above the horizon we return to our homes for a day of Easter egg hunts, food, and family. The lunch at our home will often consist of ham, potatoes, green beans, casseroles, and delectable desserts. Our families will visit as the children search for hidden treasures and the adults try to remember where the prize egg is hidden. Many old Easter eggs will be found in gardens long after the holiday has ended. As this Easter approaches we hope that you will join us in this celebration of hope, faith, and family.
