I work for a blood bank and it’s the season of Lent. So I am donating blood for Lent as a practice of helping others as I work my way through the 40 days until Easter.
Ash Wednesday – Lent Has Begun #Lent
Remember that you are dust, and dust you shall return. 40 days of spiritual practices, examination and reflection have begun this day.
Ash Wednesday And The Beginning Of #Lent
Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent. I received ashes tonight at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. Lent is a time of reflection and examination. Easter is coming and now is the time to make that journey.
The Season Of Lent 2021 #Lent
For many in the Christian community today begins the season of Lent. This 40 days before Easter is a time for self reflection, penitence, forgiveness and thinking of ones life and mortality. Pope Francis offers this list of things one can do to observe and participate in during this season. Everyone should find something they can do from this list.
The Coronavirus pandemic began right before Lent of 2020 so it seems the season never stopped. There has been much sacrifice and loss in these days and thinking about this time in life and history giving up something isn’t what people really want to do.
Lent can be for everyone. There are universal themes that believers and non-believers can latch on to. No matter how this season of life finds you may you be encouraged, strengthened and cared for.
Ash Wednesday: Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return #AshWednesday #Lent #Episcopal #Anglican
Ash Wednesday derives its name from the placing of repentance ashes on the foreheads of participants. Today also begins the season of Lent where observants give up something or take something on.
Shrove/Fat Tuesday Pancakes And Sausage #FatTuesday #ShroveTuesday #Pancakes #Lent
On Shrove/Fat Tuesday it’s traditional to make pancakes which uses up all of ones fatty stuffs such as butter, sugar, milk, etc before the season of Lent where one gives up such indulgent foods. These are my scratch made pancakes and store made maple sausage. I don’t know what I’m doing for Lent yet. I have a few hours to figure it out.

To all celebrating Mardi Gras today have a fun and be safe good people.
Laissez les bon temps rouler…Let the good times roll!
