On Our Resurrection Garden with Coconut Tomb (An Object Lesson)

Every year, to remind our hearts why we celebrate Easter, we create a Resurrection Garden. 

Daddy teaches them about Good Friday.  Uses a coconut to tell them.

Our hearts are dark and rough.  Like the outside of the coconut.

But on Good Friday, Jesus was beaten and crushed.  Daddy breaks open the coconut.

He shows them the inside of the fruit.  It's white, pure, fresh, good.  
Because Jesus was broken for us, we can be made clean too.
We use the coconut to symbolize the tomb in our Garden.

 We sing.  Of His love.  For all the children.

Join the conversation, glorify the Lord, proclaim his goodness. I'd love it if you did.
