We used the devotions and accompanying art from Ann Voskamp at A Holy Experience. I printed the art in black and white, taped them onto some white cardstock, punched an eyelet into them, and tied some purple Tibetan yak wool yarn through them. We hung the ornaments on a branch I broke off from the tree in our front yard, and we planted the branch in a clay pot filled with sand.
And it has been a wonderful way to focus our hearts on the meaning of Easter.
I think traditions are important. They are a way that we tell our children the stories. The stories of our lives. The stories of those who have gone before us. And the most important story of all - His story.
