Plans for Holy Week
Light the candle on our nature table.
Go for a Praise walk, followed by a picnic, weather permitting!
Marveling at the wonders of nature are prayers of praise. As we walk outdoors, we can reflect upon the Lord's creation & praise God for giving us a world that meets our needs.
Light the nature table candle daily.
Light our candle
Bake & eat (!) Hot cross buns
At 3pm blow out our candle, followed by a quiet hour of reflection.
(We have a quiet hour daily, where everyone goes to their own room. For this hour, we will stay together, but they must play quietly & their 'prayer' buckets will be available & I will be praying, reading my Bible, reflecting.)
