Ash Wednesday is a day to stare death in the face, to acknowledge our mortality. All of us will die. Christians who observe this day get ashes “imposed” on their foreheads, while a minister says, “You have come from dust, and to dust you will return.” In other words, “You are going to die. And here are some ashes to remind you, just in case you’ve forgotten.”
another fun thing that we pulled out was this countdown poster that we made with my friend amy and her kiddos when they still lived by us……
do you see the little paper Jesus on the first day? we move him one spot each day. 🙂 again, just a tangible way for the kids to see what is happening. and just throw it up with tape on your cupboard. its all good.
will you make more room for Jesus this Lent? you’ll be glad you did.
