During Lent, we have been having family devotions around the dinner table. We get out a crucifix and candle and read the Scripture passage and devotion. It has been a good experience for all of us. . .to come together around God's Word in a time other than the sometimes rushed bedtime Bible story/prayer. I hope we continue this tradition next week and following.
My two year old has begun taking the crucifix each time we get it down from the shelf and asking to "kiss Jesus's owies". He takes the cross and kisses Jesus' feet and hands. Such simple faith and love for his Savior. He is an example to me to come to the cross this Lenten season and thank Jesus for His supreme sacrifice.
