~Ascension of the Lord~
"Let our hearts ascend with Christ"~St. Augustine~
Have a Heavenly Lunch or Meal for the Ascension!
Here are some fun ideas:
*Decorate your table in white...Maybe use some fluffy white netting*
"As the disciples were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight."(cf. Acts 1:9)
~Create some heavenly thrones~
Have a white meal, using heavenly symbols:
Crowns of Heaven sandwiches...
~We used buttermilk bread, white turkey meat and white swiss cheese~
Crown shaped cookie cutters were used to cut the shapes!
Gates of Heaven Crackers with Dip
These are made using Wasa Flatbread Crackers
(I bought my dip at the deli section of a local grocery store)
Heavenly Fruit Salad
We carved out a honeydew melon and used all white fruit to fill it back up!
Top things off with a Heavenly Ascension Pie
This was very simple!
It's a Vanilla Jell-O pie (just add milk)
with Nilla Wafer pie crust,
topped with mini marshmallows (symbolizing heavenly clouds).
An Ascension Sundae on Ascension Sunday would also be a nice dessert!
~It's always fun to add something white and bubbly to drink: Sprite or Flavored Bubble Water are a couple of ideas~
"Loving Father, thanks to the Ascension of your Son our human nature is now at home with you in heaven. May this truth be our lasting encouragement and hope. We ask this through Christ our Lord." Amen.
