Lenten Love


Our Easter is much later than the Western date this year. So, we've just started our family preparation, when many of you are almost to Easter itself. In the past, we've read and loved Lenten Lights (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012). I was planning on repeating that this year, but at the last minute I changed my mind. Instead we're focusing on Jesus' love for us and learning verses to go with that theme.

I need more ideas for celebrating Easter. What do you do to focus on Jesus' love?

We're using this article as a kind of rough outline and as a source for verses that we are discussing and learning with the children weekly.

(Not everything is simple enough that we can dsicuss w/the kids, but there's plenty to work with.)

I LOVE the picture of Will holding Bogdan! SO sweet! And, I also LOVE the idea of focusing on Jesus' love for us. Isn't that what Easter is all about? Love y'all!
