Today I had absolutely no idea what to do for a post today. But while I was on Animal Jam, my friend Violet86271, gave me the idea to do an egg hunt on my blog, but incorporate scriptures in the game! I thought that was a really good idea, so I decided I would do that. ^.^
Here's how this will work,
Throughout AJFC, are five pictures, each with a different color egg on it. When you click on the egg, it will lead you to a different page, with a Scripture on it, that has to do with the Easter story. Once you find all the eggs that lead to Scriptures, you'll have to put the Scriptures together in the order they're supposed to go. Then, comment down below the order the Scriptures go in, and whoever gets the correct order first, gets a free Easter signature! The signature will have a cross on it, a Bible verse of your choice, and your username on it. If you don't have a blog, I can make it into a background you can use for your computer. ^.^

I know it might seem like eggs have nothing to do with Easter, but actually it's a very old tradition that people would do, to remember Jesus' crucifixion. Wikipedia says,

Here's a picture of one of the red eggs, from the Saint Kosmas Aitolos Greek Orthodox Monastery.
I had no idea coloring eggs had anything to do with any Christian Easter traditions! I think this is super cool. This year I'll have to dye some eggs completely red. XD
This contest will last from today, March 29th 2018, until Easter, April 1st 2018.
I hope you guys have fun with this! ^.^
Here's todays Bible verse!
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.
