Just In Time For Resurrection Sunday
This sounds similar to the ressurection Cookies, but even more simple, would be fun to do with your children.
1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
8 large marshmallows
Give each child one triangle shaped section of crescent roll. This represents the tomb.
Each child takes one marshmallow which represents the body of Christ.
Dip the marshmallow in the butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. This represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with upon burial.
Lay the marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap it around the marshmallow.
Make sure all seams are pinched together well.
(Otherwise the marshmallow will "ooze" out of the seams)
Bake according to package directions. Cool.
Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!! Celebrate God's love! ♥♥♥

Praise God for his resurrection, and for being the saviour
the world was waiting for, I thank God he came to me and saved my soul, back in July 1974, oh praise his holy name.
He is still saving souls today, we had about 11 saved this last week at the tent Revival meeting in Folkston Georgia,
God is on the move, he is still touching hearts and saving souls, he is still wanting everyone to accept his dear son Jesus Christ as their own personal Saviour, and to have a intimate relationship with him. God bless you my friends, and hope your weekend is a good one blessed from our Father on high.
