Lent starts Wedneday, March 9th. My friend Floss from France is hosting "A Pause in Lent" again this year. Floss is a happily married mum of two boys and she is in education. Her blog is Troc, Broc, and Recup. is inspirational and though provoking. Her love for Christ is beautiful, as is her heart. Join in every Sunday of Lent to visit with wonderful women of wisdom and faith.
Most people think that Lent is only about giving up something for 40 days. The Church does have directives on giving up meat on Fridays and fasting on Ash Wednesday & Good Friday, but more must be experienced. Lent is the church's invitation for us to go further in faith and devotion. The season prepares us to celebrate with greater intensity the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Challenge yourself this Lent season to do more, give of yourself in service, and sacrifice by breaking down those things that weigh you down. During Lent I will be posting a daily scripture, thoughts, prayer, and way of action.
God Bless You!
