With Easter just a few days away, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite things to incorporate into the hubby's and my space in preparation for Easter morning! Everyone probably celebrates Easter a little bit differently and you do not need to create a particular space to celebrate this fabulous day, but at the Pruess' household we like to begin this day in a special little space dedicated to celebrating our God, We begin our morning with coffee in hand, a bible open on the table, and sunlight seeping in. We dive into what makes this day so special by reading about our amazing Savior and preparing ourselves for the celebration of the rest of the day ahead! Regardless of whether or not this is how you begin Easter Sunday, here are a few ideas you may be able to incorporate into your space (should you choose to create one) for this special day!
Select a space that provides the natural sunlight to seep into your place of meditation. Sunlight is such a great reminder of the simple fact that God always provides. He said, "Let there be light" and so it was. The sunlight also gets our bodies awake and excited about the day ahead! So open up the blinds and let God's light in!
Remove anything from your space that may be distracting so you are able to focus on your meditation and the fabulous words of God. This might include mail you received, ongoing projects, the television, your phone, etc. Make it easier for yourself to give your attention fully to the message Easter has to offer.
There is something uniquely special about bringing the subtle softness of nature indoors. Flowers are once again a genuine reminder that God provides and all of the beauty He has created. The sense of smell has also been tied to emotional memory, so whenever you smell the scent of the particular bouquet in the future, you are reminded of this special day!
Cozy & Uplifting Elements
Like flowers, I encourage you to incorporate items into the space that bring you a sense of cozy, love, and uplifting gratitude. These may be things like coffee, subtle soft music, a blanket, or a candle. You want your space to be a space you are comfortable in, so you can truly focus on the Word and how blessed you truly are to have your Savior. All of the items you bring into your space will become connected to the message you are reading. When you look, touch, hear, smell, these items in the future you will be reminded of the celebration of Easter!
GOD- The Reason We Celebrate
Although the items listed above are little nuances to prepare your space for your Easter morning meditation, if you do not bring God, the day is meaningless! Bring your Bible, bring the message, and bring an open heart to your space. Allow God to wash over you and remind you about His Son and all that He has done for you!
My hubby and I spend our morning in our space reading the passages of this glorious Easter Sunday. We are blessed to have Him in our marriage and in our lives as the constant greatest gift we could have ever been given! For this, we spend our day celebrating who He is and all that He has done for us! We love creating our space in preparation for this special day- Easter and all that it means to us.
I would love to see photos of your special Easter Sunday space and why it is meaningful to you on this wonderful day!
