Today begins Holy Week. One of my favourite weeks of the year. I love the church services and the readings, the time spent in prayer and reflection. I’ve always tried to keep Easter more about our religion and less about candy. I’ve even heard of people buying gifts at Easter. That seems crazy to me.
We have always observed this time as family, quiet and reflective. Our time to listen rather than hear what is being taught to us. I still love to color eggs, eat chocolate mini eggs and enjoy fun family time, but that is definitely second to our celebration.
Kindness will surround me this week, but not physical kindness from others; rather it will be felt in my heart and soul. It will reflect in my prayers and my meditations; in remembrance of why we observe Holy Week and all that is to celebrate on Easter Sunday. 🙏🏻
