"Oh taste and see that the LORD is good..." Ps. 34:8
This week around after dinner each night we will be incorporating some of Noel Piper's Holy Week ideas found here. We started it this weekend, and it is quite meaningful. I am looking forward to our special time together each night. The candles and readings are really helping us to focus our hearts as we approach Easter. I highly recommend it if you're not already using a Holy Week devotional. It's not too late to incorporate it into your family's table time or after-dinner time this week.
Here's what our family will be enjoying for dinner each night:
Monday: Baked Potato Soup, salad, garlic bread
Tuesday: Out to eat for my father-in-law's birthday (Happy birthday, "Big Luke!")
Wednesday: Chicken and dumplings, fried okra
Friday: Passover Seder meal with our Family Bible Fellowship (Sunday school class)
Weekend: Easter dinner- ham, spinach salad, green beans, rolls, blueberry-banana pie
