Good Friday…great blessings

April 6, 2012

Our Good Friday traditions include extra sacrifices. We drink only water. We try to disconnect from the normal, everyday distractions. We spend the time together. We prepare for Easter. We clean and we spend the 3:00 hour in silence. I was so lame this year and misplaced my CD of the Sorrowful Mysteries AND the one for the Stations of the Cross. Good grief!
Okay, so it’s minutes before our silence and I have no materials to guide the youngest audience in the HOUR of silence. Thank God for ready access to the internet. We enjoyed this version of the Stations of the Cross…it was a great treat for our kids to “see” the passion.

We also tried a new little something…homemade bread for dinner. Actually, we were able to get the bread mixed and set to rise while we were in our hour or silence. The kids were so anxious to lift the tea towel at 4:00 and see if our bread had worked. OH MY. Everyone was excited.

Oh yes. Fantastic bread. A great treat for this day of sacrifice. (Yes. In our house we climb on top of the counters.)
