Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - March 25, 2024

It's a gray and cloudy first Monday of Spring 2024 and Passion Week is in full swing!

Yesterday morning we celebrated Palm Sunday with scripture reading about the Triumphal Entry from all four gospels. The children had paper palm leaves to wave as they shouted "Hosanna! Hosanna!" at the appropriate times and real palm leaves were sent home with each family.

“And the multitudes that went before, and that
followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David:
Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord;..."
(Matthew 21:9)

In the evening the girls put on their "best apparel" in celebration of Purim as we, once again, heard the wonderful story of Queen Esther and the ultimate triumph over evil. 

After the telling of the story we enjoyed trays of delicious homemade hamentashen...cherry, raspberry, blueberry, apricot, and chocolate! So good! 

Now, here it is Monday and we've all got a full week ahead! Let's get started...shall we?

“And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud
voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say,
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
(Matthew 27:46)

And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary
the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet
spices, that they might come and anoint him.." (Mark 16:1)

 "And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for

said unto the women, He is not here for He is risen,
as he said."  (Matthew 28:1-6)

Well, that's all for today! Have a nice Monday and a great week ahead! Happy Resurrection/Easter Sunday!

    1. Thanks, Billie Jo! May this glorious holiday season be a time of renewal and refreshing for all of us! Blessings, Sweet Lady!

  2. Your children are very precious, that must be a wonderful way to teach the scriptures to them.
    I am amazed every year during this season, what a great gift we have been given, it never gets old, worn out or obsolete. I think on how blessed we are to be given a relationship with Him., and it still astounds me. It is such a humbling thing to know the depths of His willingness to pay our price. I love Him.

    1. Thanks, Annie! Those are actually a few of my grandchildren, but, yes, precious are they, indeed, and I am beyond blessed! And, yes, Sweet Sister, amen! I agree 100%! Never gets old, worn out, or obsolete...astounding...humbling! I think, even as Christians, we, all too often, fail to realize what Jesus really did for us on the cross. I love Him, too! Have a blessed and glorious Holy Week and Happy Resurrection Sunday! Blessings!
