Traditionally when we talk about Christ cleansing the temple, we start by cleaning our house. Alright!!!
Egg 2 is a cracker to represent the passover meal and the sacrament.
Egg 3 is a small cup to represent the Savior in Gethsamne and that he asks if it is possible that this cup shall pass from him? Not his will, but Heavenly Father's will be done.
I won't bore you with each egg but know that each egg is filled except the last one is left empty. Representing the Savior's resurrection.
Day 3: Parables
This is the part that I am completely honest and tell you that we were not able to do our activity for the evening. I was so upset with the entire day. I had to make caramel apples for the YW spaghetti dinner which takes 2 hours of my time. I did not get home from work on time, I was an hour late. The caramel was being extremely stubborn and nothing turned out pretty. I have caramel all over my floors, the cement outside, and white chocolate smeared on my cabinets and counter tops. I was planning on talking about the parables that the Savior taught, but time passed quickly and I ended up going to the spaghetti dinner with my hair pulled back and I was sad. Sad Looking, too!
So, I will show you the only thing that we got out of that day was our display of pictures of the Savior's mission on my mantle and the LOA board was filling up.
Day 4 we read books. We read the Reflections of Christ book, but instead this time I had Shaeler tell me what was going on in the story by the pictures. This was such a wonderful experience to hear her little testimony explain to me what she understands about what happened to the Savior in his final hours. She did a great job and she liked being the story teller.
We also talked about parables and how stories can teach us valuable lessons in our lives. One of our family favorites is the Parable of the Bicycle. We read this together as a family and I asked Shaeler to see if she could tell me what was the lesson from this book. Her answer was "Jesus loves me!" To which I replied: "That is absolutely correct!"
