the easter dragon strikes again

last year, we didn't receive a visit from our beloved friend, the easter dragon.  but this time he flew in for some fun!!

but before he visited, we had a quick game of kick-ball.  it was intense!!














he left papaw paul with the first clue.






the kiddos were mighty quick in solving the clues this year & reading the messages left.




below are the clues he left for them:
“Let them praise his name in the dance! Let them sing praises to him with tambourine and harp!” Psalms 149:3 - World English Bible 

 1.   E-E-E-E-EASTER..E-E-E-E-EASTERTIME! .WHAT DO YOU THINK I SAY?  I LOVE THE SONG “WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY?”  IT GETS STUCK IN MY HEAD ALL DAY LONG & MY OTHER DRAGON FRIENDS THINK I AM A BIT SILLY SINGING RATA-TAT-TAT-TAT.    I HOPE YOU ALWAYS REMEMBER THE JOY THAT CAN BE FOUND IN SINGING, DANCING & WORSHIPING OUR LORD.   




MY QUESTION TO YOU IS WHAT DOES THE GOOSE SAY (HINT, HINT)??


 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-8 
2.. OH, LOVE..I LOVE LOVE – DO YOU?  A WISE WOMAN ONCE SHARED THAT EVERY NIGHT, BEFORE SHE SAID HER PRAYERS, SHE WOULD PUT HER NAME IN PLACE OF “LOVE” AND ASK HERSELF IF SHE WAS ABLE TO DO THE THINGS IN THE VERSE.  I, THE EASTER DRAGON, LIKE TO DO THE SAME & LET ME TELL YOU- I FAIL DAILY.  BUT I KEEP TRYING & HOPE YOU WILL TOO.  AT NIGHT, ASK YOURSELVES, DARBY, BEN & GRACIE IF YOU WERE ABLE TO BE PATIENT AND KIND.NOT RUDE OR ENVIOUS.  IT IS A HARD TASK TO DO, BUT I’M SURE YOU CAN ACCEPT THAT MISSION! 
THE NEXT SURPRISE IS IN A SPOT THAT GRANDMA DEEDEE LOVED TO BAKE FAVORITE TREATS FOR FAVORITE PEOPLE. 



 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THOSE “DRAGON EGGS” YOU FOUND ARE FOR YOU TO DECORATE HOW YOU CHOOSE! (OUTSIDE)

But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”  Matthew 4:4

3.  THERE’S NOTHING I LIKE BETTER THAN A GOOD BOOK BEFORE BED.  GO CHECK WHERE YOU LAY YOUR HEAD & SEE WHAT IS THERE!
ONE OF THESE BOOKS IS VERY SPECIAL, BECAUSE IT IS A BOOK TO BE WRITTEN BY YOU ABOUT YOU!  YOU CAN WRITE WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE, BECAUSE IT IS YOUR STORY, MY FRIENDS.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
John 11:25-26




4.   I LOVE TO STOP & SMELL THE FLOWERS, BUT SOMETIMES I LET OUT A SNEEZE & END UP CATCHING THEM ON FIRE!  
AS YOU CELEBRATE EASTER & THE ETERNAL LIFE GOD HAS PROMISED US, I COULD USE SOME HELP WITH CREATING SOME BEAUTIFUL ARRANGEMENTS TO CELEBRATE LOVED ONES WATCHING OVER US FROM HEAVEN.  I STARTED, BUT I KNOW YOU GUYS CAN DO A DRAGONTASTIC JOB FINISHING!

TO FIND THIS, YOU MUST REARRANGE THE LETTERS BELOW TO FIND THE HIDING SPOT:

LLWYHAA ETCOLS 


 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:10


5.  HOW DO WE HAVE A CLEAN HEART??  I THINK THIS IS DONE BY GIVING OUR HEARTS TO JESUS & LIVING OUR LIVES FOR HIM.   PRAYER, READING YOUR BIBLE & TALKING TO THOSE THAT LOVE YOU WHEN YOU HAVE QUESTIONS IS A GREAT WAY TO DO THAT.

I’VE HIDDEN YOUR NEXT SURPRISES IN A PLACE YOU CAN WASH OFF...


I GUESS YOU REMEMBER I’M KIND OF A GERM-A-PHOBE, HUH?  THAT SANITZER & KLEENEX CAN COME IN HANDY THOUGH!
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.JAMES 1:17
EACH OF YOU ARE A GOOD & PERFECT GIFT FROM GOD & YOUR FAMILY COUNTS YOU ALL AS SUCH WONDERFUL BLESSINGS. 


  .  TO FIND YOUR FINAL TREASURES, USE THE FIRST LETTER FROM EACH WORD: PAUL,AMAZING,TOYS,INCREDIBLE,OLIVE  IN BELIEVE, ALWAYS, COOK, KOOL-AID
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DARBY, BEN AND GRACIE,
AS YOUR SCAVENGER HUNT COMES TO AN END, ONE MORE VERSE I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU. 
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."Jeremiah 29:11
THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BIBLE VERSES.  IT REMINDS ME TO TRUST IN GOD ALWAYS, TO NOT BE AFRAID & KNOW THAT HE HAS A PLAN FOR ME, AS HE DOES FOR EACH ONE OF YOU.  I ENJOY WATCHING EACH ONE OF YOU GROW INTO THE INCREDIBLE LITTLE PEOPLE YOU ARE BECOMING.  THANK YOU FOR BEING MY FRIENDS! 
I LOVE YOU ALL,
THE EASTER DRAGON



the kiddos did an amazing job crating flower saddles to go on mamaw barb's & deedee's tombstones.  it was a great to share the love that dee had in making sure to pay respect to those that are no longer here on earth with us.  i know i am worn out from all the fun & am looking forward to celebrating Easter tomorrow at One Life & with family and friends! Happy Easter!!
