Chickidies and Churches

I love these baby Chickens and with I could have brought them home from Oaxaca.  I could not find out how they made them so colorful, but I am sure it would be illegal in the US.  They would have made fun Easter gifts.

 
The Catholic’s in Oaxaca seem to celebrate Christ’s Crucifixion more than His resurrection.  They make and sell these figures of Jesus on the cross.
 
 It is sad for me to see the people worshiping Christ on the cross because they don’t seem to have the joy and hope that the Bible promises those who believe in the resurrection.
 Oaxaca is the second poorest state in Mexico with 57% of the children in rural areas experiencing stunted growth due to malnutrition.  There are people living in houses with dirt floors, no running water and no indoor restrooms.  Yet each village has a very big and elaborately decorated Church.  This Easter as you attend your church, gather with family for a scrumptious meal and fill your Easter baskets, don’t forget the reason for the holiday and say a prayer for those less fortunate.
