You've been Egg'd

get your holiday Easter lunchis at
In March, we shamrock'd some neighbors and now in April we are going to egg them!  You're probably thinking, I'm glad you're not my neighbor.  Truthfully our antics really aren't as bad as they sound - unless you are on a diet and can't eat sweets.
In honor of the Easter holiday, I wrote two poems (below) and designed a Easter Holiday Lunchi to raise money for charity.  Our family packaged them up three ways and dellvered them to some special people in our life and even left some randomly throughout the city.  
If you enjoy giving to others in a creative way, download the graphically designed lunchi's and package them up for your friends and neighbors.  It is a great tradition to share with your kids and the $2 donation goes to charity. Or you can copy and paste my poem below.  Just make sure to put after it as the intent is to give back to others =)
If you feel like baking instead of leaving candy, here is a fabulous sugar cookie recipe, otherwise jelly beans and traditional chocolate are great egg fillers.

(fill a basket of eggs and leave in the classroom for the teacher or on the doorstep of a family)

You've been Egg'd  
written by Tricia Cohn - graphically designed version is at
An easter bunny hopped along
looking for some treats,
over the hills and mountaintops
he tired his little feet.
It was then he stopped to take a rest
near some delicate painted  - rocks?
Some of them were striped real funny 
just like a pair of socks.
Some had dots and some had spots
that were green, blue and black
One of them even had, a tiny little crack. 
He peeked inside...
what did he find? many treats to eat!!!
But he couldn’t eat them all you know
for his mom would blow a gasket...
so he gathered them up and left some for you
in this little easter basket.

(Add this poem inside a golden egg and leave it for your Christian friends and/or someone you would like to invite to know Jesus.)

You've been Blessed

 For three days a bunny hopped
searching for some relief.
He’d just overcome a treacherous event
which led him to your street.
It was here he found a special sign
and knew it was the right place -
your loving heart and unwavering faith
brought a smile to his face.
The bunny was happy and rose again
and started to hippity hop...
Hippity Hop, Hippity Hop,
Hippity Hop  - KerPlop!
Every time he jumped for joy
an egg would land - KerPlop!
it’s then he knew to share his love
with everyone nonstop!
So he left these eggs at your door
to say thanks for being faithful
and loving HIM evermore. 

Add this poem to a mason jar filled with Jelly Beans (see picture above)
Red is for the blood he gave
Green is for the grass he made
Yellow is for the sun so bright
orange is for the edge of night
Black is for the sins we made
White is for the grace he gave
Purple is for his hour of sorrow
Pink is for our new tomorrow.

Enjoying sharing the love!  I guarantee you will feel the love too.  If you would like to KNOW HIS love, you are invited to attend church services at Crossroads In Corona.  Consider yourself egg'd.
