This is our latest project for the Lent season. We planted grass seed all over it. It should be covered with a nice fuzzy green in a few days!
For several years now I’ve wanted to celebrate the Lenten season to the same extent that we celebrate Christmas. After all, Resurrection Day is the most important remembrance of the Christian year! It’s a real challenge to find activities and decorations that reflect the true meaning of the holiday. (We don’t use bunnies, chicks, or eggs since they come from pagan traditions.) This planter is just a start towards a more Christ-centered holiday.
What Biblical traditions or symbols do you use during this season? I’d love to hear your ideas.
