Monday Menu

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it" John 1:5

These are our candles we will be using this week each evening after dinner during our Holy Week readings. (We are using Noel Piper's readings found here.) If you were to look closely under the ivy you would see our Advent wreath, and these are some of the candles we used at Christmas. I think that's quite symbolic. It was also thrifty, because I already had it all on hand! It's not too late to put together some candles and incorporate some scripture readings each evening to make this week leading up to Easter a more set-apart time in your home. I've posted some other links here. I'd love to know some of your ideas!

On to our menu...

Happy St. Paddy's Day!
Baked Potato Soup (didnt have this a couple of weeks ago), salad, Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

Baked Fish (didn't have this last week), steamed vegetables, hot bread

I'm going to comment on the last two posts here Cyndi. I'm a bit behind on reading posts :-)
My heart is so blessed to read of the things you are doing with your family. There are times I wish so badly I could go back and do things a bit better. You are all going to be so richly blessed by these family times around the word.
Thanks for all the links. I'm going to read them
We are so busy with choir this week I haven't had time to think of much else as far as Easter celebrations go. I need to just take a bit of quiet time and let His words speak to my heart.
Have a blessed week Cyndi.

Your last several posts are a wonderful reminder of the importance of family. So often responsibilities get in the way of knowing what is priority. Thank you.
