Lent is almost here

March 1, 2011

Just a quick post. I wanted to share a link to a document that I created this morning for use in our home this Lent. I plan to cut apart the different sacrifices/offerings and place them in a bowl as part of our simple centerpiece. (Maybe I’ll get a picture posted next week of our centerpiece.)

At any rate, each offering was chosen keeping in mind the ages of our children, 7 & 4. I am hopeful that everyone in the family will be able to find their own way to make these offerings possible. I was uncertain as to the effectiveness of our 4-year-olds ability to make a meaningful sacrifice throughout the 40 days of Lent. This seemed a better solution for some real offerings of sacrifice and love. One day is more manageable to a young soul.

I am certain God rewards the gestures with a great deal of grace. May we each embrace the opportunity to love more this Lenten season and draw closer to Christ also.

Please feel free to share this link with friends and family who might benefit from using it this season also.
Ash Wednesday is March 9th.

You can find our calendar HERE. There’s a total of three pages. A few of the cards we’ll do more than once to cover the entire Lenten season (excluding Sundays of course).
