We have 20 days, beginning April 1st (updated for 2015 – March 17th), to go on a journey.
A journey that gives us a chance to look into the work of our Savior.
Hebrews 12:2 says, “We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the leader of our faith, and he is the one who makes our faith complete. He suffered death on a cross. But he accepted the shame of the cross as if it were nothing because of the joy he could see waiting for him. And now he is sitting at the right side of God’s throne.”
This is it, my friends.
We want joy? We must do as Jesus did.
We must look beyond the trials, the troubles, the tears of this world and remember the JOY that is waiting for us -
BECAUSE OF WHAT HE DID AT EASTER.
While this is the message to preach to our Happy Homes – to the world – every. single. day, this month brings an especially tangible and precious opportunity to make this joy come alive for our loved ones.
It’s called The Joy Journey.
I purposely tried to gather the easiest and most doable ideas (’cause, you know, if it requires more than 4 things, I usually start breaking out in a sweat).
You can grab a supply list for each activity HERE.
The goal is to do one activity per day during the days leading up to Easter and prayerfully engage my little ones in the sweet message of our Lord’s journey to joy.
Oh, dear bloggy friends! I pray that this little website can help assist you in focusing your Happy Homes on the cross this Easter!
Bunnies are fun and adorable and are even a small part of this journey and are, in fact, created by the Lord, Himself, but they are not what Easter is about.
Easter is about the joy we can experience today.
Because Easter is about Jesus.
Happy Easter, everyone. :-)
