Extra Credit: What was thanksgiving #362?
While working on the “exam,”  members may snack on “Nests Filled with Eggs,” which are simply peanut butter chews scooped into cupcake tins and then shaped into nests.  Once cool, fill the nests with eggs, candy-coated almonds.
 
For the intentional activity of joy, make use of your local prayer labyrinth if possible.  Walking the circular path while giving thanks at each stone will not only nourish the soul, but also burn those extra calories from the “Nests Filled with Eggs” snack.
