Elizabeth Foss wrote a beautiful article, for the Arlington Catholic Herald:
If you have a second, hop on over and read it! She has some great points worth reflecting on.
As far as our family activities... I have been busy cutting felt, in my free moments, for our Jesus Tree. It is alot of cutting! :) Hopefully I will have week 3 completed soon!
Also... if you are looking for a few more ideas of things to do with your children, don't miss Amy's beautiful Lenten Calendar, and all the wonderful ideas over at Ruth's blog. I LOVE Ruth's stations of the cross candles. If we didn't go to church for the Stations each week, I would be making them!!!
Wishing you all a very blessed Lent!
