This week marks Holy Week - the week between Palm Sunday and Easter. Are you looking for something meaningful to commemorate this time? Last night our family lit candles and put them in the shape of a cross. Each night we will light one less candle out until Friday when there are no more to light.
This Wednesday is Passover. It's the day Jews remember their deliverance from Egypt by putting the blood of a lamb on the doorposts of their homes. This act caused the destroyer to pass over their houses and bring them no harm. Maundy Thursday marks the day Jesus was crucified. Good Friday is the traditional Jewish Sabbath. And Easter, also known as Resurrection Sunday, is this Sunday!
For our candle cross we used tea lights. Something simple and nothing fancy. Our kids are on a rotating schedule to blow the candles out each night, which creates more peace.
The rest of this week I will share more Holy Week ideas with you including a new way to dye eggs.
As you reflect on this sacred week, may its meaning become more alive to you.
