FABBY: A Prayer for Easter of Resurrection.

O Jesus, King, receive my prayer,

and consider my supplication as a pledge to You.

For you, O living King,

have gone forth and gone up out of Hell,

as Conqueror.

Woe to those who have rejected you;

For, to evil spirits and demons, you are sorrow,

to Satan and to Death, you are pain,

To Sin and Hell, you are mourning.

Yet, O how joy has come today,

for those who are born anew.

Therefore, on this great day,

We give great glory to You,
 I made this small honoring Easter Sunday, to remind us of the Resurrection of Christ the Lord.
 My mother made this crochet runner along with a tablecloth for me, many years ago.
 This is a colonial Spanish antique iron cross from my Mil.  I brought the flower base here as I will make a smaller one for the table to give visibility to the guests.
 This photo was taken before I added the cloche with the Easter egg inside.
Hubby and me practicing a platain basket with guacamole.

 My hubby and me were practicing how to make a cup made out of cooked and mashed green plantain which is like a green here it is!  It's stuffed with guacamole, which tomorrow we'll add some shrimp too.  Below, the finish dish! Cute, isn't it?  It wasn't that easy to make, but fun.

who died and is now alive,

that to all you may give life and resurrection!

Have a wonderful and blessed Easter everyone!

Thanks for visiting me all the way from Ecuador.
Your pottery and tablescape and photos are beautiful.
I like dogs too (and cats). My German Shep mix (now in heaven) is on my blog. My dog and two cats would kiss each other on demand. How cute is that!?
