Recommended Posts

This is a post I put up every year about a pine tree in the state (Florida) that puts out crosses on it's branches. Here is a video I did about it.

When I can find my pic on this I'll post it also.

 

I found a a song by Johnny Cash about a pine tree. Thought it might be entertaining. Has nothing to do with above.

I came across this interesting story about Easter eggs. I thought it was related enough to this post to include it here.

 

The origins of red Easter eggs among the Easter Orthodox goes back to a story of Mary Magdalene. I have heard two stories on the origins of the egg. The egg itself is said to represent Christ. The intact egg died red represents Christ’s passion and death, while the opened egg represents new life. So here are the stories linking Mary Magdalene to the red Easter eggs.

 

Mary visits the Roman emperor and greets him with “Christ has risenâ€ÂÂ. The emperor replied that Christ can no more rise again than this egg can turn red. At that point the egg in his hand turned blood red. She then continued to preach Christ’s resurrection to the stunned emperor. This is the most common story I have heard and it is only associated with Mary Magdalene.
