Can you believe we have been celebrating Holy Week with this growing Colony since 2009!
Each year has looked a little different.
This year we did quite a bit of journaling.
Actually, journaling has become a regular part of our family devotions over the past couple of years.
Josh will read a scripture and then give them something to journal,
draw or create to depict what we discuss.
|I don't remember exactly what Jude said this was, but I think it is the Lord's supper|
|Alethia found some "Palm branches" in the backyard for our triumphal entry reenactment|
|Rainy volunteered to be the donkey for Zeke who was Jesus.|
Sometimes it seems silly the older and older they get, but hey, they are still into it, and we always have fun memories,
and it is a visual they don't soon forget, ha!
|We read about the Lord's supper and its significance|
|We dyed Easter eggs while talking about the burial, resurrection, new life and baptism.|
|Foot washing has always been a Holy Week favorite for us.|
|This photo is one of my favorites because,|
I mean, just look at Jude's face,
but also Zeke, our germaphobe, washing the most disgusting pair of feet in the house.
It was a humble sacrifice he volunteered for all on his own.
"And though they found in him no guilt worthy of death, they asked Pilot to have him executed,
and when they had carried out all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree,
and laid him in the tomb, but God raised him from the dead, and he appeared to those who had gone up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are now his witnesses to the people,
and we bring you the good news, that what God promised to the fathers,
this he has fulfilled in us, their children, by raising Jesus..."
Happy Resurrection Day!
