When the windows are thrown open and the curtains are ruffling in the breeze and the sun is shining brightly, I feel so inspired to clean my house! Coming off a rough winter filled with sickness which resulted in some injured side ribs and cartilage and lots of pain, I hadn't really done much of anything but the bare basics for months. Finally I am feeling much better pain wise and am able to attend to things easier! I decided it was high time to do some sprucing up! I took the mop to my floors and made them shine! I cleaned the ashes out of the wood stove for the last time this season! I dusted and arranged! And I opened the windows and doors and let that sunshine and fresh air stream in!
I gathered flowers and put them in a neat old jar that my husband salvaged from an old house he is renovating. Isn't it pretty? I lit my delicious Blueberry Cheesecake candle from my friend Meghan at www.kmaccreations.com (LOVE her stuff btw!)
Our God really knew what He was doing when he created this beauty!
I went outside and cut a few Forsythia branches and put them in yet another cool vase and sat that on my table.
That weekend I had the kids do Resurrection artwork. I got a few ideas from my friend Candace at www.mercyisnew.com for some resurrection art. The picture below was done by Rebecca (3) with just a little bit of help from mama. It's oil pastels and watercolor. I deemed it frame worthy. Love the colors in it!
I found this little printable on Pinterest. You can find it on my Easter board: www.pinterest.com/ozarkrose84
It is just so much fun to decorate for Spring!
Coming next is something to do with your kids to prepare their hearts for the Resurrection!
