A Wonderful Easter Storybook for Kids

book. It explains 
forgiveness in such a 
nice way. 
It's a story about a 
little boy who lied and told
his Mom he got a gold
star on his spelling test -
when he actually did rather poorly
and got several red x's.
His parents found out and 
they forgave him. He repented and
God forgave him, but he
still carried around guilt.
Then his Mom has him make
a Sparkle Egg. He decorates
it beautifully and she gives him 
a slip of paper and tells him
to draw something on it
that he feels bad about.
He draws a gold star to represent
the lie he told and they 
place it inside the egg.
He puts the egg on the mantle
and on Easter morning
it is inside his basket with his
other Easter surprises,
but when he opens it, he finds
it empty. 
The egg is empty because 
the sin represented on
the piece of paper is
forgiven and gone.
And the tomb of Jesus is empty
and our sins are 
forgiven and gone
when we accept God's forgiveness
and give out lives to Christ.
And when we accept God's forgiveness
we need to let go of our feelings
of guilt and shame.
When we hold on to those 
feelings we cannot fully
shine for Christ. 

This was such a good, good book!
After reading it to Grace she made a
Sparkle Egg!
She put pictures of Momma's
shampoo bottle, soap, and 
Daddy's toothbrush on it.
All of which she had tampered 
with in the previous 24 hours.
I do hope Momma and Daddy
can be as forgiving
as Jesus. That girl wasted Momma's
shampoo and soap and scrubbed
the counter with Daddy's toothbrush
and made it taste mighty yucky!
At the time - it was not funny
at all, but I'm sure it will make
a great story for her to someday
tell when her children ask her to
tell them a story about
when she was a kid! 
Here is the book on Amazon:

It may have been a few dollars less
at Mardel, where I purchased mine,
but really... it's worth every penny!
Christian values are often taught 
with good Christian books!
