Ash Wednesday

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of the Lenten season.  Lent lasts for 40 days (Monday through Saturday).  Most people are familiar with the idea of giving something up for Lent.  Are you giving something up for Lent?  If so, what?

  • Chocolate?
  • Coffee?
  • Sugar?
  • Facebook?

Come back tomorrow, Ash Wednesday, for fun facts about Lent...if you've ever had questions about Lent, you won't want to miss this.

Hi Freddae', I will be doing without sweets for the next 40 days. I also plan to give a little extra time to my kids for devotion. I have made some pocket Easter eggs to use as a tool! They are on my blog if you want to see them!

We sure love our Valentine blocks! Thank you again!

Rather than give up something, I was challenged this past Sunday to focus more on one thing. I chose LOVE and in the process drawer closer to those around me, and more importantly Christ. :)

I'm excited about your upcoming posts. I'll be back!

I tried to give up chocolate once before and felt like such a weakling. I'm still trying to figure out what it will be this year...better late than never?

Because I'm not Catholic, my church does it a little differently. We give up something, but also vow to do something positive. I wrote a little about it here: http://singlemamacentral.blogspot.com/2010/02/lent.html

What are you giving up?

I'm giving up Facebook games. But don't tell anyone - I haven't broken the news to my Farmville neighbors yet!
