"Put something where you can see it so your eye will remind your heart."Martha Zimmerman, Celebrating the Christian Year
I've been some time brainstorming and planning for some special days ahead: The First Day of Spring, Palm Sunday & Holy Week - Passover, Good Friday, Holy Saturday & Resurrection Sunday.
Celebrating special days of the Christian Calendar has long been a joy for us, but it varies greatly from year to year what we get around to.
- It's fun, for one thing. It creates memory glue for our children and our family. It gives me a reminder to do something extra - something special outside of the everyday.
- It helps us (adults AND kids) to remember the Christian Calendar - Special days that remind us to keep Christ as the center of our home and our year and our days.
- It is a learning opportunity. A chance to share with our kids in new ways about the Bible, History & what serving and Loving God means for us.
I want to build a new cross for inside and one for outside (The old one was old and got tossed)...where to find the wood?
Need to pull out my Easter Decorations: crown of thorns, colored cloths to represent the days, Cross, etc.
First day of Spring - This Saturday, 3/20 -
Fresh flowers for the house, Nature walk, Pink spring cake for Sunday Dessert. Use this day to celebrate the beginning of our spring break
