It's that time of year again-LENT.
Where we slowly count down the days to Easter and through that journey we hopefully prepare our hearts for this wondrous celebration.
After reading through my prepared printouts and colouring some pages the children decided to make there own masks.
That evening I started our preparations for our them of Lent.
This year it being The Year of Mercy I had seen somewhere this idea of Mercy and I have incorporated this as the main focus for us this Lent. Along with some other prayerful endevours.
I also created the small poster with an invitation for us to give our hearts on the Lenten journey.
It is also our tradition to hide the Alleluia until Easter and to not say in at all in our house hold.
I like to have the crown of thorns ready for Ash Wednesday so Rogan and I stayed up and I made this crown from salt dough while we watched Colonial house together.
Then it is on the table ready for the good deeds, sacrifices and prayers to be started in the morning
Then we use our Countdowns to count the days up until Easter.
This is one we made last year and loved so we are reusing it again this year.
May your journey through Lent be a productive and joyful Journey this year.
Blessings to you and your homes,
