My Favorite Quotes:

A person's a PERSON no matter how small... -Dr. Seuss

I am a little pencil in the hand of God who is sending a love letter to the world. - Mother Teresa

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to THINK, than WHAT to think- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men. - James Beattie

2 little LENT lessons... (Lent Link-Up and Sunday Snippets)

Lent Link-Up
Hiding the ALLELUIA until Easter...

Found this adorable idea from Lacy at Catholic Icing (one of my new fave blogs!)
I just took what I found from around the house... brown paper bags, purple tissue paper, markers, glue, wide yellow ribbon and letters I printed off the computer that Lacy found on Martha Stewart- sooo pretty!


The Lamb of God (found this on Ten kids and a dog and Karen Edmisten)

I found a picture of a lamb online (because I am TERRIBLE at freehand) - printed it out and had my kids glue a cotton ball on (one for each day of Lent). We talked about Jesus dying for us so that someday we would be with him in heaven.  They seemed to have fun putting on the lamb's "wool"!!

Ok, I love sooooo much what you did with the "Alleluia" that it makes me sad I didn't think to print mine on colored paper! Lol! I posted the picture to my "reader spotlight" album. Thanks for linking this up! :-)
