The Cutest Easter Story. (that I have)


This is a story my Mom told me recently, so I can’t verify if she made it up to get onto the blog or not.

I only wish I could reenact it for you in person.


I can reenact the stoned-like face above. Maybe. But I could never, ever again pull off a short skirt like that again. 

This incident happened Easter morning when I was about 4 or 5.

I was so excited when I awoke to find a huge basket full of goodies. (Apparently rocks and dirt were my favorite gifts until this point) 

I checked out my basket of goodies, then I ran out the front door of our house, heading down the street to my friend Kim’s house. I needed to share the news with her.

I ran down the sidewalk (only 6 houses) and I was shouting:


One of the homes between mine and Kim’s was our Ministers house.

He witnessed my excitement firsthand.

And wouldn’t you know it, when we attended church later that morning, I became part of his sermon.

He thought I was screaming for joy because of Jesus…but at that age, it was all about the Easter Bunny!

As I grew older I learned the truth about Easter. About Jesus.

But I don’t think our Minister ever learned the truth about me.

Bless his heart….

Happy Easter!

  1. that is funny… whether your mom made it up or not 🙂 and i just betcha that your minister knew. but sometimes you gotta embelish the story to make it really good. now that i think of it, your mom coulda done better if she was making it up. like add in a big dragon that was chasing you down the street… or a bear. love you! happy easter! hope that easter bunny comes again!


  2. I once read that when a true southerner says, \”Bless his heart\”, it's going to be followed with a gentle and veiled insult.The story was VERY cute. I don't imagine your mom made it up.Bless the minister's heart if he REALLY thought a little 4 or 5 year old kid would be THAT excited about Jesus on Easter morning.I'm sure some would, but they would be more of the 'don't receive Easter baskets' persuasion.You're always a hoot for me!!


  3. I love your brother's wide white belt and shoes. I remember when boys and men wore those…and leisure suits.That story is hysterical! But I have to tell you, for a split second I envisioned you saying that about Coach.Ok, now you can delete my comment.Happy Easter!


  4. That picture is too cute! And, you could SO pull off a skirt like that now. As a matter of fact, I think you should wear it to church tomorrow, and see if the minister remembers you. 😉


  5. Hey Suz…Been a slug at keeping up with blogs i went a few posts back and laughed at your funny humor. Love that you let Baby go play. She looks like she's having fun. Not too sure about the *boat*, you'll have to tell about that. And the nails and picture of G'ma is a hoot! Good for you being the daughter to your Uncle.This post? Would Mama's ever tell fibs? that picture and the Minister..bless his heart (o:Have a great Easter and I'll be back for the story..


  6.

  7. How stinkin' sweet!Apparently when I was little we went to the easter play. I was so little that I stood up in the pew and screamed \”DONT KILL MY JESUS! DONT YOU KILL MY JESUS!!!\” it made everyone cry harder!


  8. This story is SO great. I don't think your Mom made it up. I don't think she should have to make up stories to get on the blog. You tell her that you will put ANY stories she wants on the blog at ANY time… : ) Do you hear me?I hope you have a wonderful Easter. It is a special day to celebrate Jesus, isn't it? : )I hope the pastor is still preaching it in his sermons.


  9. You are definitely the hostess with the mostest! But, there's a lot to be said about being a guest.Oh no, it's hot in Florida already? I'm heading there next month and I'm hoping that living in TX for a few years has acclimated me to humidity. Why didn't you all just jump in the pool and cool off? If I were you I'd just mow the weeds!
