This is our second year of emphasizing the true meaning of Easter, from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. I wrote about it last year at The Homemaking Cottage. This year, I’m a little more organized and have a better feel of what works for our family.
Since yesterday was Palm Sunday, we read Luke 19:29-44 and discussed the symbolism of the palm branches. “Palms for the Lord” is a great article explaining the significance.
We also started our annual LOA (Love One Another) poster, where we write grateful messages to family members. For example: Dad, thanks for driving the kids to their friend’s house. We did this last year and read the notes on Easter. It added a nice spirit to our home.
I found that idea and more in a book called A Christ Centered Easter by Janet and Joe Hales. It’s a great resource with several things we incorporate into our own celebration. Stop by everyday to see how we commemorate Easter Week!
