We have 20 days, beginning April 1st (updated for 2015 – March 16th), 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.
I put together 20 Christ-centered activities for you to help make it possible. :-)
It’s called The Joy Journey.
**You can print the 20 activity cards at the bottom of this post.**
I cut mine out, put them into 20 plastic eggs, numbered them with a Sharpie, and placed them in a bowl.
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.
And speaking of sweet, I may have slipped a few M&M’s into the final egg to be opened on Easter morning. :-)
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 that awaits us.
Easter is about the joy we can experience today.
Because Easter is about Jesus.
