Feet Washing Night

I don't really remember how long ago we started... and I suppose it doesn't really matter... but on the Thursday before Easter (Maundy Thursday)... I wash and perfume my children's feet.

 There is no rigid ritual we follow.  Craig is at work tonight so the children took pictures as I washed their sibling's feet.

We sang songs about Jesus as I rubbed mango scented oil into their heels. Delaney was especially interested in "helping" me with this job.

Afterward I read the story of The Last Supper from the The Jesus Storybook Bible... if you have not read that version I highly recommend it... It speaks clearly of the love and servant-hood in Jesus' act of washing his disciples' feet.
