Empty Nest, Red Eggs, Truth Church
On Sunday after sending our youngest son off to the airport for his trip back to the USA, I went, for the first time, to the Hong Kong church I have been asked to help serve. After the service, there were red eggs for all! What is this about?
A symbol of joy and blessing in Chinese culture, red dyed eggs are handed out one month after a baby is born.
So as our own nest empties out (well, for two weeks,anyway) I was blessed with this symbol of new life and joy.
Ma On Shan Truth Lutheran Church and School... I'm so excited about the new life and discoveries ahead of us here.
