For our family, yesterday marked the beginning of our Holy Week celebration. Over the past few years, we have begun to make Passover a key part of that celebration for our family. We know that Passover and Easter frequently do not line up on our calendars, HOWEVER, several years ago they did.
That week – the week of honoring Passover right before Easter made both of the holidays so much richer and more precious. Since then, we have chosen to line them up. So, for our family we will be celebrating Passover on Thursday, followed by Good Friday and Easter Sunday. And when we reach Monday next week, by the grace of Father, my children’s understanding of the import and need for the Cross will have grown some more….as will my own.
Blessed Holy Week to all!
(If you’ve got time, I’d love to hear how your family will be celebrating Holy Week. AND we are re-writing our Haggadah AGAIN this year. This time to accommodate a pwecoshus two year old who would NEVER make it through our “normal” plan. Or maybe it’s the Mom of the two year old who would never make it through the two year old making it through the whole liturgy. 😀 Either way, if you would like a copy of it, let me know – once I finish it – hopefully today – I will happily share it with you.)
