Is anyone else as behind as I am when it comes to Easter planning? Holy cow, it's Holy Week!
It's terrible; we've been so busy and I feel as if we've lost sight of what we should be focused on this Lenten season.
My daughter goes to a Catholic school and they've been learning a great deal about this topic on a daily basis in religion class. (Again, over-committed mom has to rely on the teacher.) Last night I was helping her with a Stations of the Cross book she had to make for class. She was coloring one of the images and asked how they kept Jesus on to the cross. I began to tell her, quite honestly, which may have been a bit much on my part. She look horrified and then put her hands over her ears. Clearly they handle this with kid gloves in first grade. Way to go, mom.
But, it made me think. Aren't there so many in the world who figuratively put their hands over their ears and not want to hear about Jesus? Who have walked away? He made the ultimate sacrifice for us. What have we done in return? I'm not pointing the finger at anyone. I'm just as guilty for not being as "present" as I could during Lent. So, I have a lot to focus on this week. How about you?
For those of you who do celebreate Easter, I hope you have a blessed Holy Week and have time to reflect and rejoice.
