It's not that I find it morally objectionable. It's just that eggs are kind of like bathrooms - they're designed for specific functions, so decorating them is kind of pointless because you aren't going to be there any longer than you have to. Think about it. God created eggs for two purposes: to protect and nourish growing baby birds or, if there is no baby bird inside, as food and nourishment for others. Eggs are meant to be broken eventually, so why in the world would you boil them and dye them colors, or hide them and expect children to look for them?
Note: mommy said she never liked Easter egg hunts growing up, and daddy wasn't fond of them either. They said it was an exercise in futility. I don't know what "futility" is, but I think it means that they thought it was a waste of time.
Maybe I'm being a silly hen, but it seems that if you want to color something then dye your hair, or paint your nails. Something that will last a bit longer. As far as eggs go scramble them, fry them, use then in a cake, devil them - whatever as long as you eat them like you're supposed to. But dying them is kind of like buying an expensive painting and hanging it over your toilet, where it will look silly and nobody will see it under civilized conditions. Why would you do that?
I don't know. They're your eggs and it's your time to spend as you please. If you want to color eggs and hide them just to break them and eat them later, have at it.
That's all today. Happy Easter and remember that faith in our Risen Lord and Savior is beautiful, smart, wise, fundamental to our spiritual survival, and the cornerstone of our faith. We love Jesus!
