Breakfast with Jesus
What do Swedish Fish, goldfish, cinnamon rolls, and our Risen Lord have in common?
That's what was on the breakfast menu in our home the week after Easter! (Yes, we're all health nuts around here.)
Inspired by one of my favorite parts of John where the resurrected Jesus appears to his disciples on the beach for a little morning fish fry, I thought we'd read John 21 together and have our own breakfast of fish and bread. Okay, goldfish crackers and Swedish Fish (left over from an egg hunt). I also thought I'd jazz up our bread with a little cinnamon, butter, and brown sugar for some morning cinnamon rolls. Because, really, I think Jesus would have done the same if he had a little extra cinnamon around that morning, too.
It was the perfect Resurrection breakfast to talk about the joy of being Easter people. And I think it'll become a new tradition.
