Muffin Tin Meal: Resurrection Eggs and Spiritual Food

While I don't normally share our meals until Monday, I wanted to share this one right away, so you can use it before Easter if you want to.  This weeks Muffin Tin Meal was different than usual, as our muffin tin was intended to feed us spiritually rather than physically.

Sometime in the week before our Easter our family gets out the set of Resurrection Eggs my husband and I made, but this year I decided that rather than leave them in the eggs, we would have a spiritual feast at dinnertime, and I took the scriptures and visual aids out of the eggs and put them in our muffin tin.

Here is a list of the scriptures and accompanying items.  (We have adapted the items slightly from those listed in "A Christ-Centered Easter" by Janet and Joe Hales.)

1. Matthew 26:14-16   (Three dimes)
2. Matthew 26:26-28   (A small cracker or piece of bread)
3. Matthew 26:36-37, 39, 42, 44  (A small cup)
4. Matthew 27:1-2   (A piece of twine or rope)
5. Matthew 27:22-24   (A piece of soap)
6. Mark 15:16-19   (A strip of purple cloth)
7. Luke 23:26-27, 33   (A nail)
8. Luke 23:24   (Toothpicks to represent casting lots.  We have three, with one broken short to actually cast lots with.)
9. Matthew 27:50-51, 54  (Soil and rocks)
10. Luke 23:50-53; Matthew 27:60   (Strip of white cloth)
11. Mark 16:1-4   (Tea bag, spices tied in a small piece of cloth)
12. Mark 16:5-6   (Left empty)

One of our other favorite activities that feeds us spiritually and physically is to make Resurrection Cookies.  We won't be making ours in time for me to post about them before Easter, but Mackenzie at Cheerios and Lattes has a great step by step on how to make them.

Love it! I will be heading over to check out the resurrection cookies. We made resurrection rolls this year but it would be fun to try something different next year.

Sharla~ Thank you! I hope you enjoy the cookies. They are very sweet, so we've found they are a good way to fellowship with our neighbors, since we can't eat them all. We love resurrection rolls as well.
In fact, I'll be posting about those soon.
