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 with PaPa and Grandma Dee. (Dad is out of town on a business trip) We went out to eat at Luby's afterwards....which has become a tradition on this day.

Kaci and Bailey want to try and participate again this year by giving up something they love for Lent. Kaci is going to give up soda water and Bailey is going to give up playing Angry Birds on Clint's phone and Clint's "Big phone"-the loving name Bailey has given his tablet! lol
It could be a very long 40 days! ha But -I am very proud of them for trying! I am going to give up soda as well. In the past, I have just given up one kind of soda, Mountain Dew. This year, Kaci has decided, that is cheating. I must give it up - ALL or NOTHING! So it goes......
Has it been 40 days yet? LOL
