Easter Basket Ideas for Your Dog

  1. New Collar: After the long winter, is your dog’s collar looking a little worn? Consider a brightly colored collar to go with the warm months ahead.
  2. Bandana: A new, holiday-themed bandana to wear around on Easter Sunday is the perfect addition to your dog’s basket. Bandanas are an inexpensive Easter Basket filler. You may want to grab a couple extra for the upcoming summer months.
  3. Squeaky Toys or Ball: Does your dog like squeaky toys? Or is playing catch a favorite for your four-legged fur baby? Almost every department store carries a large selection of squeaky toys and balls. Grab two or three for your dog’s basket.
  4. Dog Biscuits, Treats, or Bones: What’s your dog’s favorite snack? When you are out picking up last-minute items for Easter, grab a bag of your dog’s preferred treat. If you want to go the extra step, you can always make homemade dog biscuits to place in the basket.
  5. Doggie Fashion Wear: Shirts, coats, hats, and even pajamas are all available for your dog to enjoy.
  6. New Stuffed Toy (Dog Approved): A stuffed bunny or other dog toys are a perfect addition to the Easter Basket.
  7. Photo with the Easter Bunny: Many organizations host Easter Bunny photos for pets to raise funds. Generally, the cost is low or by donation. As a pet owner, you will get a memorable photo of your dog or the two of you together with the Easter Bunny. The best part, the funds raised go to a good cause.

Whatever you decide to do for Easter, take time to cuddle and love your faithful companion. Happy Easter!

16 Quotes for Good Friday

Today, April 15th is Good Friday. Are you searching for quotes to add to your Good Friday posts on social media? Check out the following list for inspiration.

Photo by Rodolfo Clix on Pexels.com
  1. “It is the resurrection that makes Good Friday good.” – Ravi Zacharias
  2. “We may say that on the first Good Friday afternoon was completed that great act by which light conquered darkness and goodness conquered sin. That is the wonder of our Savior’s crucifixion.” – Phillips Brooks
  3. What is good about Good Friday? Why isn’t it called Bad Friday? Because out of the appallingly bad came what was inexpressibly good. And the good trumps the bad, because though the bad was temporary, the good is eternal.” – Randy Alcorn
  4. “The highest act of love is the giving of the best gift, and, if necessary, at the greatest cost, to the least deserving. That’s what God did. At the loss of His Son’s life to the totally undeserving, God gave the best gift – the display of the glory of Christ who is the image of God.” – John Piper
  5. “No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.” – William Penn
  6. “On the eve of the cross, Jesus made his decision. He would rather go to hell for you than go to heaven without you.” – Max Lucado
  7. “Unless there is a Good Friday in your life, there can be no Easter Sunday.” Fulton J. Sheen
  8. “When Good Friday comes, these are the moments in life when we feel there’s no hope. But then, Easter comes.” – Coretta Scott King
  9. “Good Friday, the day when Christians remember the crucifixion of Jesus. The crucifixion and resurrection are the central events in the Christian faith. That is why Good Friday and Easter Sunday are such important days in the Christian year. The cross is the central theme of worship.” – Gordon Geddes
  10. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” – John 3:16
  11. I believe in person to person. Every person is Christ to me, and since there is only one Jesus, that person is the one person in the world at that moment.” – Mother Teresa
  12. “Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.” – Martin Luther
  13. “Practice mercy and forgiveness throughout as a lesson that symbolizes the love shown through his crucifixion.”- Unarine Ramaru
  14. “The cross was two pieces of dead wood; and a helpless, unresisting Man was nailed to it; yet it was mightier than the world, and triumphed, and will ever triumph over it.” – Augustus William Hare
  15. “Easter is a time when God turned the inevitability of death into the invincibility of life.” – Craig D. Lounsbrough
  16. “We focus on Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, but we forget to pause in the stillness of the days between. Find time today to be present in that place of waiting. There is treasure to be found in the sacred peace that comes as you breathe in that place of quiet surrender. Don’t rush through the space called ‘Between.’” – Katherine J Walden

Have a Blessed Good Friday!
