Resurrection Garden


It is now Spring! Praise the Lord!

With the arrival of this blessed Spring, it also brings the most sacred celebration for a born again believer – the death and incredible resurrection of Jesus Christ. This year, we are doing things a little different and will not celebrate “Easter”. Instead, will be attempting to hold our own small, intimate Passover celebration, as we learn and follow along with a Family’s Guide to Biblical Holidays.


But one thing stays the same – the girls started this new season with a homemade Resurrection Garden.



We re-used a basket and added some soil, rocks for a pathway, a tomb, a stone to roll across the tomb and some plants as decoration. Lyla made the cross from sticks outside – we had a little crown of thorns from a previous year when their dad made some crosses and thorns as project with the girls.







They added some spelt seeds, which we had soaked over night. The seeds, if watered every day, will sprout and grow “grass” around the garden, adding a special effect. The girls love to spritz the garden with water each morning and already some of the sprouts are popping up.

We look forward to learning more about this special season together as a family in the weeks to come.

Gigi Amy, that is wonderful! So nice to hear that your children enjoyed it. It is wonderful and very enlightening to learn of the Hebrew traditions of our Saviour. We are so removed from them now. Our church held a Seder meal last year – it was great, but it was busy with the children so I am looking forward to going over more details in our own home.

amy We did a Passover/Last supper last year and the kids LOVED it. I picked and choose from a bunch of different sites and we as we ate things, the kids read different scriptures and such talking about the symbolism of things. Having wine glasses with grape juice was fun too.
we have yet to tackle a resurrection garden as I have NO clue where we could leave it as space is limited in our tiny house and we don’t have plants in general. Maybe one day…
