Something to Celebrate!
March 1 marks the beginning of Lent. For Catholic and Protestant Christians, Lent can be a meaningful time to focus on Christ in a unique way as we reflect on His Life, Death, and Resurrection that has given us our own life and freedom in Him.
THAT is something to celebrate. I encourage you to do an online search for "celebrating Lent as a family." I think you'll find some very helpful resources if you want to do something unique as a family between now and Easter.
And of course St. Patrick's Day will be celebrated by young and old alike on March 17. You can turn this holiday into an opportunity to praise God for a man who gave his life to tell the world about Christ! Although there is certainly much lore around the story of the life of St. Patrick, it is a chance to reclaim the most important part of this story: Patrick was a missionary, evangelist, and church planter!
And if that's not enough fun for you, we can celebrate Daylight Savings Time (any ideas about how to do that with your kids??) and the First Day of Spring (indeed a day we celebrate in our home... this mom survived another winter!).
Life can be hard. Seasons can feel long and arduous. A wise person (Gretcen Rubin) once said, "The days are long, but the years are short."
I have parented long enough to tell you this is true.
What can you celebrate this month? How can you praise God and share His Goodness with your children? In a month that might otherwise seem uninspiring, how can we take every opportunity to be in God's Word together share Jesus with our kids?
