Candlemas Celebrated

Last night we celebrated Candlemas. 
 We have had a hectic and emotionally heavy week that prevented us from recognizing it on its assigned day, February 2.  But I am so glad that we persisted in our efforts to recognize this day of the liturgical calendar.  It was balm for our spirit to sit around the family dining table that was awash with candlelight and enter God's word together.
The boys made edible candles.

While I prepared our Candlemas tea.
(For details on our tea check out this earlier blog post)

I love finding symbolic and memorable ways to share God's word with my children.
And I love these moments together as family.
