I actually took time this year to ponder what kind of Lenten commitments we would make. Usually it sneaks up on me. I'll elaborate on those later, but for now I'll post a couple pictures from our first Lenten Crown of Thorns which will become a Crown of Glory at Easter! When the children perform an act of charity, a special sacrifice, or another good deed they get to take a thorn (toothpick) off of the crown. At Easter they should all be gone and we'll paint and decorate the beautiful Crown of Glory! It's working well so far.
