Today is Wednesday, February 26, 2008
This is the second day of the 2008 40 trash bag challenge. The challenge is an opportunity to remove the excess clutter and “stuff” from our lives. The excess can be given away, sold, donated or trashed. The first goal is to let go; the second goal is to bless others.
Today’s bag of stuff for our family will come from the kitchen. We are going through our cupboards and letting go of those items we rarely or never use. This can be baking pans, small appliances, dishes, or anything stored in the kitchen. I am also going to hit the dreaded “junk” drawer. Anything that I don’t have a home or use for I am letting go of. I am also using a box instead of a bag for the big things like pans or plates.
We are talking about spring.
Quote for the day: “Totus tuus” – the apostolic motto of Pope John Paul II (totally yours)
See and do activity: Take a nature walk and notice the early bulbs, leaves and new green growth. Talk about how God blesses use, how all things ultimately belong to Him.
Read we are reading “A seed is sleepy”.
Craft: We are planting small containers of flower seeds to watch them grow.
Lap book page: Draw and color some of the new growth we saw today.
