What a fabulous Holy Week our little family spent together. It was very important to Eric and I to talk often with Liesel about the true Easter story and what our Lord and Savior did for us! I am not sure what she understood but Liesel definitely knew this holiday was ALL about Jesus, and he lives!
In the beginning of the Lenten season we focused a lot on the cross, and how the cross shows how deep Christ’s love is for all of us. Liesel would spot crosses anywhere and exclaim look it’s a cross for Jesus! She took a teenage boy cashier at Target by surprise when she pointed to his chain necklace and yelled you have a cross for Jesus! It’s beautiful! ha, love her enthusiasm. The teenager had no response to her comment just an awkward smile. I think we have a strong evangelist on our hands:)
During the week leading up to Easter a fun activity we did was make salt dough crosses. Liesel loved cutting out the cross shapes and decorating them with heart beads.
Another fun project the girls and I did was make paper plate tambourines. We wanted to praise God for his love for us. Boy did the girls love dancing with their instruments. We sang Praise Him, Jesus Loves Me, and He’s Got The Whole World in His Hands.
The week was ended with church services for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and a celebratory Easter Sunday! We enjoyed a wonderful weekend with Mimi and Papa! The girls were able to attend a special Grandchildren event at their clubhouse with an animal show and egg hunt! Such a blessed week! Glad to celebrate with our girls. Christ is Risen Indeed, Hallelujah!!!
