Happy Ascension Sunday! Today we celebrate Jesus ascending into heaven, and what a beautiful weekend to celebrate! Spring and maybe summer has arrived in full force, the sunshine and warm weather sure are a nice break from the rain!
If you've been following along you know that we celebrate Easter season in our house with a dessert every Sunday - Ascension Sunday provides a very special treat - Cotton Candy!! Cotton candy reminds us of the clouds in our first reading today
"When he had said this, as they were looking on,
he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight." (Acts 1:9)
What other treats can you use to remind you of clouds? Marshmallows, popcorn, jello with cool whip - the possibilities are endless! If you have an Ascension Sunday tradition I would love to hear about it!
Check out the video below for a Lego version of today's readings:
The Great Commission (Gospel Reading):
Instead of coloring pages today - get outside!! Just a reminder that our youth "Finding Beauty in God's creation" contest ends this week! This weekend would be a great time to enter! Check out details at this link:
Have a GREAT weekend!
