Turn away from sin and be faithful to the gospel. Mark 1:15

Today is Ash Wednesday. It is the first day of Lent and occurs forty-six days (forty days not counting Sundays) before Easter. It falls on a different date each year, because it is dependent on the date of Easter; it can occur as early as February 4 or as late as March 10. Ash Wednesday gets its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance. The ashes used are gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year's Palm Sunday are burned. This paste is used by the priest (or minister)
who presides at the service to make the sign of the cross, first upon his own forehead
and then on each of those present who stand before him at the altar rail.

We went to church at St. Thomas tonight to receive our ashes.
Kaci and Bailey want to participate again this year by giving up something they love for Lent. Kaci is going to give start by giving up Mario Cart for the first week and then follow up each week by giving up something else she loves. Bailey is going to give up drinking Diet Coke It could be a very long 40 days! ha But -I am very proud of them for trying!

Last year I gave up Mountain Dew- but have decided this year to give up ALL soda! WOW!
This could be a tough one...but I am determined to do it. Who knows...maybe drinking more water will become a habit for me! It would be a nice one to have!

As we were leaving the church- Bailey said, " I sure wish Dad was her to celebrate this moment with us!" So sweet....Clint is out of town on business.

We celebrated afterwards by going out to eat at Lubys! The kids loved it and 2 hours after our meal...Kaci's blood sugar was perfect! Yeah for us on guessing the carbs in her meal!!
