    Web search pysanki (or some variation on that spelling) and prepare to have your mind blown. With various parts protected by wax, they are dyed the various colors. The eggs are raw, not boiled, and when finished, coated with varnish. The insides wither to a small ball. There is no smell, but they can keep indefinitely. It is a fantastic art form.

    It reminds me of the song my grandparents loved from their day called, “The Hokey Pokey”. It sounded like a silly song and the dance was pretty silly but if you listen to the words it talks about the decisions of life and just making the best of it because that’s what it’s all about!

    Calvin’s version of 1Peter 1:24 “… “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away,” But, there is also …

    Ec 3:11 “… He (God) has put eternity in their (man’s) hearts,”

    We’ll have an eternity to think about what we did with our little square. Check out Luke 9:23,24

    paraphrase: “He is no fool who gives away what he cannot keep (his life) to gain what he cannot lose (eternal life).”
