Happy Good Friday to you all. I hope you're remembering the significance of this day and will take a moment to thank God for the gift of His Son. It's been a little over a week since we last posted, but today, we reflected on this day and completed our tomb project that we started in our last post. You will see below that the grass seed we mixed into our soil took off and our grassy "hill" over our "tomb" is now lush! Now, onto the next part ...
For the crosses for our "hill," we simply brought in some twigs from outside and adhered them together using a glue gun.
Here are our crosses, with Jesus' larger one in the center.
Then, came the question of what we would put in the tomb. I didn't have a small figure of Jesus, and though I toyed with the idea of wrapping up Maggie's small Minnie Mouse, my friend, Logan, had the great idea of using the lamb from our farm set. After all, Jesus is the Lamb! (Great idea, Logan! Thanks!) So, we used the lamb to represent Jesus and some toilet paper for wrapping.
Then, we placed our crosses into our "hill," being sure Jesus' Cross was front and center.
Here's a closer picture. (You may want to first trim your grass before placing your crosses.)
Then, we carefully wrapped our lamb and placed it in the tomb, to represent Jesus' body.
Thank you, Jesus.
Finally, we placed this large rock in front of the tomb. (My plan is to remove the rock Saturday evening and remove the wrapped lamb so that she will find the tomb empty on Easter morning, just as Mary and the women found Jesus' tomb empty on the third day.)
Happy Good Friday to you all.
