Celebrating Holy Week

March was a crazy busy month! All of the birthdays are now over for a bit and Brian's mom came home from the hospital on Saturday finally. She's still trying to get adjusted to new medications and is still feeling lousy, so I'd appreciate your keeping her in your prayers. I really wanted to do more with Lent and Holy Week this year, but I've had to scale back considerably in order to mantain sanity. So I've returned to my Easter file and pulled out a few gems. I have one that I haven'r found a link for yet that we'll be using this year. Each day we will read the Scriptures relating to the events for each day of Passion Week. Brian has off for Good Friday and the Scripture for that day follow a timeline from early morning, 9AM, 12 noon, and 3PM that I hope to follow. Here are links to a few great resources for remembering this week's events.

  1. The Teaching Home's Easter Unit Study
  2. Christianity Today has Family Activities for the week leading up to Easter as well as a Countdown to Easter article with 40 ideas for 40 days of Lent, many of which are great for this week.
  3. Christian Homemaking (and a million other websites) have Resurrection Story cookies that are in my plans for Saturday evening.
