I find it hard to believe (and some days accept) that Hannah is growing up so quickly. She is no longer a baby. She isn’t even a toddler. At 3 wonderful years she is now fully a pre-schooler who grasps new things at lightening speed!
As much as I want to slow time so that I can savour every moment, there are also new opportunities that are opening up to us now that she’s a bit older. Tonight we had a great mother~daughter time at the church enjoying a family event called, ‘Journey to the Cross’.
I found it easy to share the birth of Jesus with her at Christmas but have been struggling with how to share the Easter story with her at a level that she can understand and yet won’t scare her when she’s not able to process the details or truly express her questions. Tonight’s event was geared for children and was informative, interactive and wonderfully geared towards children. Even though much of it went over her head, it was a great first introduction to the Easter story.
Here are some pictures from our evening together.
A little round stone. On one side we drew a cross and on the other wrote the letters ABC for:
A – Admit I am a sinner
B – Believe Jesus died on the cross so that I could have forgiveness of my sins
C – Confess my sins to him
Participating in the celebratory dance that Jesus is risen!
What a great evening! The first of many with my kiddo and spending them learning about God’s love for us is the very best way to spend time together!!
