Points to Ponder ...

  • "My children may bicker, and I may—almost certainly will—complain. But the bickering and the griping are chaff, and what’s left when the winds of time carry them away are the golden kernels I want to savor..." --Melissa Wiley

Ohhhhh! It is all *absolutely* perfect!!! I LOVE it!! What a special tradition for your family!

My kids and I especially were amazed at your crown cake. What a great idea to make the cookies for the crown cake from a few stars baked together. It turned out wonderful!

And I hope you can remember the foccacia recipe. I have never tried making one before (that I can recall) and it looks super yummy!

What a wonderful feast - WOW! It was a great idea to utilize Alice's Lenten Tea for this feast as well. And your focaccia looks beautiful - I'll bet it tasted as good as it looked.

Wow! Beautiful!

. . .'til my trophies at last I lie down?? That one?? Looks great Eileen. I'm going to invite you to my house for our next feast. I can't pull these things off!!

OH, wow, Eileen! Fabulous ideas here! You've outdone yourself. &:o)

You did such a GREAT job! I can't believe how many wonderful ideas you came up with for every part of the meal. The two robbers, purple cloak, golgatha eggs....so many great ways to teach our faith. I am going to steal your ideas for our Good Friday dinner next year! Thanks for sharing and for being a part of the fair!

Thanks, Michele! Of course, the credit for all the good ideas goes entirely to Alice Gunther at Cottage Blessings. She has lots of other great scriptural tea ideas, and awesome crafts, too! Definitely at the top of my bookmark list!

Oh, and Teresita -- you are such a goof! :) Now I lie me down to sleep, too. (I am so LOL!!)

What a beautiful blog. I came to read about the Triumph of the Cross and just kept on reading. I got to a post where you had your Pzfalzgraf(sp?) dishes in the picture. I have the same set. Love 'em and love your blog!

Absolutely stunning!

Wow, Eileen! Incredible. I love the crown of thorns centerpiece. Thank you so much for sharing this post.
