This wonderful new book in the Love Letters from God series is another treasure, helping children to understand the depth and significance of the Easter holiday.
It is divided into 7 sections emphasizing different elements of the Easter story, each with a note to the reader from God, helping to apply each lesson to his/her life.
The sections are:
King of Kings--the Ride into Jerusalem
What Love Looks Like--Washing Feet
The Secret Supper--Last Supper
The Gloomy Garden--Gethsemane
The Darkest Day--Crucifixion
The Quiet Cave--Burial
The Super Surprise--Resurrection
I loved the depiction of Jesus showing what love looks like, washing the disciples' feet.
I loved the pages that described heaven and how to get there.
And most of all I loved the description of God working inside the tomb.
"But inside that quiet cave God was working. If you tried to peek inside, you couldn't see anything. If you stood outside and put your ear to the big stone, you couldn't hear anything. If you tried to imagine what was happening, you couldn't. But inside, God was doing something utterly amazing. Something only God could do."
I love Glenys' writing because although it is written for children, I still find a take-a-way for myself as an adult, too.
I am in a season of waiting for God. I need to believe that even though I can't see it, hear it, or imagine it, HE IS AT WORK!
Thanks Glenys, for your writing. It touches and encourages souls of all ages.
I would highly recommend buying this book for any little readers in your home!
