Easter Enlightenment: Palm Sunday

This is our second year of emphasizing the true meaning of Easter, from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.  I wrote about it last year at The Homemaking Cottage.  This year, I'm a little more organized and have a better feel of what works for our family.

Since yesterday was Palm Sunday, we read Luke 19:29-44 and discussed the symbolism of the palm branches.  "Palms for the Lord" is a great article explaining the significance.

We also started our annual LOA (Love One Another) poster, where we write grateful messages to family members.  For example: Dad, thanks for driving the kids to their friend's house.  We did this last year and read the notes on Easter.  It added a nice spirit to our home. 

I found that idea and more in a book called A Christ Centered Easter by Janet and Joe Hales. It's a great resource with several things we incorporate into our own celebration.  Stop by everyday to see how we commemorate Easter Week!
