Teaching Lent to my kids...

I struggled this week with how to teach Lent to my kids. It's not an easy concept. As Ash Wednesday came and went, I came upon a wonderful idea online. This activity called for the kids to create their own clay pot, and then each Sunday of lent we will place a small item in the pot that represents an aspect of our God's love and mercy. It is perfect! Today we created our pots. As I looked at their amazing creations, I kept thinking about how we are all truly imperfect vessels. Amazing how something a bit lopsided and crooked can still be so beautiful in the eyes of it's Creator. Happy Lent.
