One Good Friday



This egg gives me cold chills every time I think about it and how the design came about.  Join me to see how this happened!



A few years back I was dyeing Easter Eggs. I was trying to use natural methods to see what would work best. This one small white bantam egg.

I chose to place in strong coffee. I pulled it out of the cup and Catie was standing there watching the egg as it was drying.  She said, "Mama, that egg is doing something strange!"  I was busy so I just glanced at it working on.

A little later I really looked at this egg and couldn't believe my eyes.  I called to Catie and said"Look!"  She said, "Yes, Mama that is what I was trying to tell you."

It was amazing then and it is amazing now to me.

I now share it again with you all.






I placed it in the nest with the small Mockingbird Eggs that had been left.  It seemed to be the appropriate place at the time.  It was as plain as it could be that day.  On Easter morning the face faded away.  We did nothing but place the egg in the coffee.  I thank Jesus every time I see this picture.
  
I thank him for the sacrifice he made for each and everyone of us on that day.



I thought I would share this below from The Cove

If you ever get the chance to go to The Cove I say go.  It is such a beautiful Spirit filled place and you will be blessed.

  2. Beautiful! Love the idea of dying the eggs in coffee - gives it such an earthy natural look. I often use onion skins to dye mine.

    Have a blessed Easter, my friend.
