Resurrection Easter Eggs 
 
Cut apart the following scriptures and put them in corresponding numbered plasticeggs. Add the appropriate item (in parentheses) except for the 12th egg, whichshould remain symbolically empty. Serve the eggs in a decorated basket. Begin withegg #1 eleven days before Easter (April 1st this year) so that you open #12 onEaster. We like to look up the scripture references and read straight from thescriptures. All references are for the King James version of the bible.1. Matthew 26:39 (sacrament cup or small cracker)2. Matthew 26: 48-49 (chocolate kiss)3. Matthew 26: 14-15 (3 dimes) This fulfilled the prophecy in Zechariah 11:12-14.4. Matthew 27:1-2 (knotted twine)5. Matthew 27:15, 17, 21, 24-26 (chunk of hand soap)6. Matthew 27:28-30 (square of red or purple fabric)7. Matthew 27:31-32 (small nail)8. Matthew 27:50-51, 54 (crushed rocks)9. Matthew 27:57-60 (strip of white cloth)10. Matthew 27:60, 62-66 ( a small, flat stone)11. Mark 16:1, 2-6 (bay leaf or other herb)12. Matthew 28:5-6 ( empty) This is also a fun gift to put together for friends and neighbors. You can assemblethe eggs and deliver them for part of family home evening!

Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin said
, “I think of how dark that Friday was when Christwas lifted up on the cross.“On that terrible Friday the earth shook and grewdark. Frightful storms lashed at the earth.“Those evil men who sought His life rejoiced. Nowthat Jesus was no more, surely those who followedHim would disperse. On that day they stoodtriumphant.“On that day the veil of the temple was rent intwain.“Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of Jesus,were both overcome with grief and despair. Thesuperb man they had loved and honored hunglifeless upon the cross.“On that Friday the Apostles were devastated. Jesus, their Savior—the man whohad walked on water and raised the dead—was Himself at the mercy of wickedmen. They watched helplessly as He was overcome by His enemies.“On that Friday the Savior of mankind was humiliated and bruised, abused andreviled.“It was a Friday filled with devastating, consuming sorrow that gnawed at the soulsof those who loved and honored the Son of God.“I think that of all the days since the beginning of this world's history, that Friday was the darkest.“But the doom of that day did not endure.“The despair did not linger because on Sunday, the resurrected Lord burst thebonds of death. He ascended from the grave and appeared gloriously triumphant asthe Savior of all mankind.And in an instant the eyes that had been filled with ever-flowing tears dried. Thelips that had whispered prayers of distress and grief now filled the air withwondrous praise, for Jesus the Christ, the Son of the living God, stood before themas the firstfruits of the Resurrection, the proof that death is merely the beginning of a new and wondrous existence.” October 2006, General Conference, Sunday WillCome
