Resurrection Cookies

Posted by Hallee on Mar 31, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare

I make this recipe with my kids every Easter eve. We enjoy the cookies the next morning with our eggs for breakfast the next morning. The kids can’t wait to open the oven door the next morning. I originally found the recipe here. I LOVE how I get to read the Bible with them as we make these cookies, how they get to have some application to apply to the story to help them retain what they’re reading and/or hearing. This is a beautiful hands-on tool to teach the resurrection of our Lord.

Menu Monday 29 March 2010 — Easter Week

Posted by Hallee on Mar 29, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

We are traveling to Florida this week. I plan to pack sausage biscuits for breakfast and a picnic lunch for the drive down, so that we can avoid any fast food restaurants. Hopefully, the weather will be nice and we can stop and picnic at a rest area, giving the boys a chance to stretch their legs and play a bit.

Martha and Mary

Posted by Hallee on Mar 12, 2010 in Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, fellowship, Hallee's Galley

A story in the Bible that has always stood out to me has been the story of Mary and Martha. Mary and Martha were sisters and hosted Jesus and his disciples in their home. In Luke 10:38-42, we read that while Martha prepared the meal and served it, her sister Mary sat at Jesus’ feet and listened to him teach. Martha complained to Jesus that her sister was not helping her, and Jesus gently chastised her because Mary was not wrong in wanting to listen to Jesus’ teaching.

Ash Wednesday & Lenten

Posted by Hallee on Feb 17, 2010 in Christian Faith, fellowship, holiness, Prayer

Today is Ash Wednesday and the first day of Lent, both of which mark the beginning of the observance of the Easter Season. Ash Wednesday comes from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance. Traditionally, the ashes used are gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year’s Palm Sunday are burned and mixed with oil. In the Roman Catholic Church, Ash Wednesday is observed by fasting, abstinence from meat, and repentance. It is a day for contemplating one’s transgressions. Ash Wednesday is also the first day of Lent.
