It has taken time for me to capture the feelings of this Holy week. The Holiest Holidays are celebrated with feasts and our most sacred covenants are guarded with fasts. Throughout the week I recounted some of the oppression levied by greedy governments. We watched Cecil B. DeMille's Ten Commandments. We saw a people oppressed in Moses' time by a wicked government freed by the hand of God. The Passover was instituted that we might never forget by what power the people went free. Christ died, was resurrected and because of Him, we are free. To commemorate this sacred event, we go to communion and partake of emblems of His Body and His blood. This is the most holy of all "foods" that is given to us to help us remember His love and devotion to us and ours for Him.
In some small way, every time a mother sacrifices to prepare and serve a meal to her family, it draws us together in love and unity. We are briefly freed from the evils of the world outside our homes. It is a sacramental offering with our families.
Brunch: Fresh potato casserole with taco meat and cheddar cheese.
Dinner: Baked chicken breast, baked potatoes with real butter, corn and cabbage/ramen noodle salad and green onions from the garden. (We used the last of the almonds in the Easter candy. They were delightful while they lasted.)
