Tunes Tuesday – Adele – Set Fire To The Rain

It’s raining here and I would like to set fire to it. Awhile back we had drought now we are good with precipitation. Some snow would be nice but that is for another post.

Shrove Tuesday (also known in Commonwealth countries as Pancake Tuesday or Pancake day) is the day in February or March immediately preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), which is celebrated in some countries by consuming pancakes. In others, especially those where it is called Mardi Gras or some translation thereof, this is a carnival day, and also the last day of “fat eating” or “gorging” before the fasting period of Lent.

This evening at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church we will gather together to feast on pancakes and to enjoy each others company. Any excuse for eating pancakes any time of day is good with me. Tomorrow will begin the season of Lent which encourages introspection, meditation and fasting leading up to Easter.

Daily Prompt: Center

Sometimes you have to find your center. It’s that special place that keeps you on an even keel. There are days when you feel off balance and you have to find that place that gives you stability. Whether it be through meditation or prayer or other means finding your center is important for everyone. Centering brings your life into focus and into where you are at the moment in the place where you are spiritually and physically. Being in the center keeps the chaos away.
