Week 1

‘When you forgive, you heal your own anger and hurt and are able to let love lead again. It's like spring cleaning for your heart.’ Marci Shimoff

 

Spring cleaning lets you see the beauty underneath.

 

The birds are busy building their nests at the moment. The nest is a safe, sheltered and comfortable place. For the next few weeks we may have to spend a lot of time in our own ‘nests’. Some spring cleaning of homes, for space and hearts, for love, will make this time more bearable for us all.

 

Dear God, thank you for our homes and those we love.

Amen

 

What devices could you invent to aid spring cleaning?

Can you design and make a nest from things around you?

If you need 5 minutes to sit quietly as a family you could use this message to think about spring.

 

“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.” ― Pablo Neruda

Spring is when the earth laughs in flowers. Anon.

 

Spring is here and we have sunshine too! Smile and feel the warmth.

 

What are the longest words about Spring that you can think of? How about frondescence or repullulate? Both are fabulous long words that I had to look up and work out how to pronounce (still rehearsing)! They are about new growth. Frons is Latin for leaf and is about leaves forming or unfurling, repullulate is about budding again.

 

As the sun shines, leaves unfurl and plants bud again, let’s smile and look forward filled with hope.

 

Dear God thank you for the joy of spring

Amen

 

On your own or as a group – together or via technology - try to find as many words to describe spring as you can.

How can you present them to really represent spring?
