Easter Bracelet

One spring afternoon, I invited the women in my section of the neighborhood to come to my house for a finger-food supper and Easter fun. We shared food and exchanged pleasantries and then I handed each woman a paper plate covered in beads, thread, and a bracelet clasp. Beginning with the Last Supper, I shared the Scripture of the Easter story, instructing the women when to add the next bead of the story. A brown bead symbolized the bread, and a deep purple bead the wine. A flower bead represented the betrayal kiss in the garden. The women listened intently to each set of Scriptures, waiting with anticipation to find out which bead came next.

Halfway through the story, one woman said shyly, “Excuse me; do you mind if we stop for just a moment? I left my boyfriend when I came over for the party, thinking I’d just drop in for a minute and come right back, but I’ve decided I want to stay. I just want to call him and tell him not to wait on me.” What a beautiful confirmation that this Easter party was God’s idea to share Christ with my neighbors!
