Easter Fresh

Dear Red Couch Readers, I have been missing in action for over three months.  We lost one of our sons in January, just 31, and it has been hard to come to terms with it.

I have thought of blogging again, but not until Easter have I done anything about it.  Easter for us is more than bunnies, eggs, and chicks.  Yes, we love those things, and it is always nice to have soothing "fresh" colors around after a hard winter.  Easter for me, means that because our Savior Jesus Christ died for us, and took upon our sins, that life is not over after we die.  We believe that we will see Chris again, and that he will be healed.  Because of Jesus Christ, we have hope.  I cannot imagine losing a son and not having this hope.  So just because I am featuring bunnies on this table; I want you to know how thankful and grateful I am for our Savior this Easter time, and I am so grateful that Heavenly Father loved us so much that he sent his son.  He truly is our source of life.

We bought these little egg cups years ago, and I just love their little legs and shoes.

I have a small collection of these "faux" chocolate bunnies.  Just don't take a bite of one.

The blue bunny glasses were acquired last year. 

The sterling was brought out for the occasion.  The bunnies like the good stuff!

The little vintage post card screen is so cute, and it provides a nice backdrop.  The little egg plates are new this year.

Here is a better shot of it.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter with you and yours.  I have missed blogging, and I have missed you and your kind visits and comments.

Have a wonderful Easter!

God bless you and your family. May He comfort you during this time. I am so very sorry for your loss. My father died in December and my mother-in-law died in January. Both are saved and in heaven. Looking forward to Easter and Spring this year!
Warm blessings,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have also had a son die, so I know it is the hardest thing a parent will face. I hope the Easter season brings you comfort in knowing you will be together one day. Your charming posts have been missed.

Oh Joni, I am truly sorry for your loss of your beloved son Chris. I do believe one day, you will be reunited. Losing a child has to be so heart breaking. May you be comforted by your faith and healing thoughts. Your Easter table is lovely. I adore your collection of faux chocolate bunnies. The egg cups are so unique. Many blessings to you and your family.

Beautiful Easter table Joni! I am so sorry for your tragic loss. Losing a child is one of the hardest things a parent has to go through. My grandmother lost her two year old Norman, and she talked about him lovingly until she passed at 100. May God comfort and keep you. xx
