This year Easter will look different for all of us! But, we can still make it fun for our kids by celebrating Holy week. Let’s try and find JOY and PEACE in this trying time. Read John 14: 27. He’s with us friends and He will never leave us! My plans for next week include Bible reading to learn the Easter story, fun Easter related activities and things you can do at home in honor of this glorious celebration.
Morning Basket time is simply time together with your child that is spent reading and learning all the good stuff. You can add anything you want to your basket. These ideas are just simply what we plan to do for a weeks time. This week is a special week! It’s Easter! We’re going to be learning about Jesus and his last days here on Earth. Happy Holy Week!!
Prayer: If you’ve read any previous post, you know that I always start our day with a prayer. We need prayer now more than ever. I’m excited about this weeks prayer because my Pastor from Tennessee contributed this beautifully written prayer. Read this every morning:
Almighty God, we celebrate the gift of Your Son Jesus during this Holy Week. Jesus, we remember and learn about Your last week, from the shouts of Hosanna, to the last meat with your disciples, ending with the humiliations, pain, fear, and loneliness as You died on the cross. You endured it all because You love us. Help us during this Holy Week to focus on all You must have felt and endured, so we may be strengthened to endure whatever may come. You died for us, may we live each day for You through the power of the Holy Spirit and the joy of the Resurrection. Amen! Pastor, Tammy Greene Shiloh Cumberland Presbyterian Church
Poetry: Read each morning after prayer.
|An Easter Carol|
|Spring bursts to-day, For Christ is risen and all the earth’s at play. |
Flash forth, thou Sun, The rain is over and gone, its work is done.
Winter is past, Sweet Spring is come at last, is come at last.
Bud, Fig and Vine, Bud, Olive, fat with fruit and oil and wine.
Break forth this morn In roses, thou but yesterday a Thorn.
Uplift thy head, O pure white Lily through the Winter dead.
Beside your dams Leap and rejoice, you merry-making Lambs.
All Herds and Flocks Rejoice, all Beasts of thickets and of rocks.
Sing, Creatures, sing, Angels and Men and Birds and everything.
All notes of Doves Fill all our world: this is the time of loves.
