Make A Resurrection Garden

FacebooktwitterpinterestmailFacebooktwitterpinterestmail

Resurrection GardenA dear friend of mine shared this with me. She plants a resurrection garden each year as a visual reminder that:

“Living, He loved me/Dying, He saved me/Buried, He carried my sins far away/Rising, He justified freely forever/One day He’s coming, O glorious day!”

What a great tradition! She uses wheat grass which grows quickly. The “tomb” is a clay flower pot turned on it’s side. Plant your wheat grass in mounded up dirt or potting soil. Spread rocks around the entrance to the”tomb”. Use a large rock for the stone that was rolled away on Resurrection Day. Place three crosses made from sticks at the back of the display.
I want to do this and use it as the centerpiece for the Easter season.
Thanks for sharing, Debbie!
