Sweetest Thing

Fluffy baby chicks
Chocolate bunnies
Jelly beans

Eggs colored in pastels
Cute little baskets full of grass
Children wandering the lawn

The completion of the plan
The washing of the blood
The hope of new life
The joy of freedom

The empty tomb
The risen Lord
The ultimate victory
A restoration to God

Chocolate is sweet
But the sweetest thing
We receive on this day
Is forgiveness
