Good Friday, He is Risen!

Jesus Christ is risen today! Wishing you all a very Happy and Blessed Easter. This is such a wonderful time of year to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Easter is a time to reflect and rejoice, for our hope is in the fact that Jesus rose from the grave.
Luke 24: 4 & 5: And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when he was still in Galilee, saying, "The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and the third day rise again." And they remembered his words.

I'm cooking Easter dinner on Sunday for my hubby's family, so we are looking forward to a good family day with his mom, grandma, sister & niece.

Edited: I've added a few yardsale finds below.

Happy, Happy Easter!
