The Cross

Every August our little family takes an End of the Summer trip to Mackinac. Along the way we always stop at The Cross in the Woods in Indian River, MI.

While we're there we we climb the Holy Stairs that lead to the shrine. Then we take meditation walk in the woods, which includes different saints along the path.

Finally, we light a candle, say a prayer and head North to Mackinac, the water park and all things fudge.

Here are some pictures from our trip two years ago.

Happy Easter Sister :)

I love that you posted these photos of your trip visiting "The Cross". It helps us focus on Christ during this Lenten season...

how come you never invite me? You know my gaggle of chaos would only increase the reverence of the situation.
