And that brings us to the end of our Easter devotions! If you have any notes, questions, corrections, or hymn suggestions to improve these Resurrection Eggs devotions, I'd love to hear them.

This year I'd love to start work on doing something to celebrate Pentecost, since these holiday devotions offer such a great teaching time that our girls excitedly look forward to. I haven't found a lot of leads on celebrating Pentecost (especially for protestants), so if you have done anything about it or can point me to any good resources, I'd love to hear about that too!
