The Lenten Journey Begins
Ashes on my head.
Fish on my plate.
And so it begins.
Fasting, Praying, Almsgiving
"Get out of your rut-it's time to move" is written in the church bulletin.
I printed out the Lenten calendar from Catholic Icing for the wee girls.
I uploaded my first Lighthouse Catholic Media talk entitled "Pray Like a Saint".....and it's excellent.
I subscribed to Lenten Reflections for Busy People....also by Lighthouse Catholic Media.
I will fast....and hear my stomach growl for the next 40 days.
I will clean a drawer or a cupboard or a closet...or just a shelf in a closet....everyday for the next 40 days. The house will be purged and there will be bags of 'stuff' to give away.
I will only bake when necessary......and this will prit near kill me.
But it will be good.
And I will be renewed when that blessed Easter day arrives.
