Relax! A Final Word on Preparing for Lent

Photo: Walter Rumsby
Have you met Leila at Like Mother, Like Daughter?  If not, you're missing something wonderful.  Stop by, and read this wonderful post, from last year, about getting ready for Lent, especially with children.

And then...relax.  Your plans for Lent don't have to be complex....they just have to be ...plans.  Lent is about paring things down. Simplifying.  Drawing closer to God.

And today...Today is a celebration.  It's a celebration of the opportunity to embark on this journey!

We are blessed, and you will be a blessing.

Blessed Shrove Tuesday!
