Of course, the children won't be fasting, but I will be making meals of abstinence, so no meat. That way we can talk about what Ash Wednesday means, why we are eating differently (or not eating, as we adults will be), and so on. We will be going to our priest's house for an Ash Wednesday service. It will be later than our normal mid-week activities, but with no coffee hour, food and socialization afterward, we will likely get home earlier anyway.
So begins Lent. I have been contemplating what penances of the will, body and mind I will do, and have come up with a plan. Please pray for me to keep them.
If you could e-mail me at: Melanie_harmeling@sbcglobal.net I would be forever in your debt!
