An Easter prayer for kids and families, too. I find that it is much easier to learn about care, kindness and appreciation by remembering a little story modeling these qualities.
"Time for joy and time for giving
Time for remembering
Love while living.
Take this message Easter Day
Show kindness, care
At home and play.
It's in our very acts of giving
Makes life worth living.
Children round the globe now hear
In your heart all year.
May joy and love spread land to land
Linked heart to heart
And hand to hand!"
As a follow through activity after reading this little prayer with your children, have them draw several pictures to illustrate the message, and collate the pages into a little prayer book for them.
I invite you to join me in a daily group cyber meditation for personal and planetary peace. Click the article here to read about it.
